I am new at the horse breeding buiss.. so natural i gave it a try this year I had a 12yr. old mare breed (AI) July 3, 2008, we took her in Aug 17,2008 and the vet did an ultra sound said that no pregnancy was detected, we were for sure she hadn't caught because a week or two later she was squirting pee at our geldings like she was in heat. But on October 18, 2008 we went to go check on the horses and her bag was full and leaking we monitored it for a couple days and it went back down after a week. Is there a chance she is pregnant, or is there a bigger heath problem wrong with the mare?

She could be experiancing a false pregnancy, the only thing I could think of that would cause a bag to fill otherwise is mastitis but even then it isn't milk and the udder is painful to touch. it also would not have gone down...

If your not sure call a vet out (Or run her in) to be examined, from reading this site there have been several instances where an ultrasound was used, said no and they ended up with a foal. (Not trying to get your hopes up though) and honestly I went through and AM going through what you are I have a mare that I had a yes on a blood result a no on palpation, and now shes showing classic signs of labor, sometimes a vet can err... especially if your mare is large

but as for bigger health problem, its doubtful, sounds like maybe she had a false on you or a hormonal switch. If your not totally sure, have her checked again even if it costs it gives you a peace of mind that we on here cannot offer. I had a barrel mare that was potentially exposed, she did like yours bagged up and everything then lost it, was total false....
