I bought a native mare infoal at the beginning of the year. She had been with the stallion for 3 weeks (i was told) and her last covering was on the 27th of June 2006. By my foal calculator it says the earliest she could have had it was starting on the 11th May 2007 and the latest was the 21st of June 2007! She has now gone on for a year and 2 weeks and i'm starting to lose hope! She definitley looks pregnant, has good sized udders, slacked muscles and a few times dripping milk and waxing but she still hasn't had it. The vet also said it was unlikely she wouldn't have the foal.

The only problem i have is that a few years ago i was told she had a phantom pregnancy (without even being covered by a stallion) and also she went for a full year last year. She is an old mare and it would be a shame for the breed if she is just having a phantom. I also told the vet about her phantom and he said he could see movement and it would be a very spectacular Phantom if it was one.
I hope i'm just being silly and she's a slow cooker!

hi, i had my mare scanned to make sure she was carrying. Have you seen or felt any foal movement? I find feeding time is the best time for my mare, but they are all different. There are no rules i have found when it comes to mares in foal. They seem to be a law unto themselves. I am sure a foal will apppear soon. Best of luck and keep us posted. Debbie.

My mare has carried a foal to day 379. I know that some carry way past a year. Hope all turns out well.

Thanks for the comments.
I have been thinking about getting her scanned however we will have to travel her to find a power source.

Our family have been breeding for around 20 years and never once have we had one go on for more than a year

forgot to add that she is on day 394 *sigh*

Good luck
