Mare is at 23 days today, (could not get 15 day ultrasound done) ultrasound showed embryo in the right horn just under ovary. Had ragged edges which I thought is normal, but vet thought it should be smooth. Also showed some white flecks in the middle.Could this be a pregnancy? Just looking for opinions or experiences. She also shows a 30 follicle in the left and no signs of heat. Vet wants to ultrasound on Monday and see if it has grown or is shrinking.

Let me clarify... we think it is an embryo. So could it be, and any chances of it moving? Need any advice or experiences please.

If it is indeed a conceptus, it would be unlikely to maintain - not impossible, but unlikely.

Other possibilities include free fluid or a cyst.

By 23 days post ovulation/conception you should be able to identify a heartbeat if it is indeed a pregnancy. Take a look at the article on our site about the equine embryo and fetus for clarification of images.

I am amazed at the number of vets who seem surprised to find follicles on the ovary when a mare is in foal. The description you gave sounds like what I have seen when checking for pregnancy. You can check the articles on this web site and see some photos of a 23 day ultrasound . The ragged edges you describe are normal after 17 days or more. I am losing confidence in some vet's ultrasounds! Good luck!
