I have a mini mare that is 402 gestation, I have 2 vets,Im using at this point, my regular one and one from his, practice and they have been in touch with a few at UC Davis, first Im new hello.:-) OK, she is 7 registered AMHA, I breed mini's this is the first time I have come across this issue, I bought her June 15th 2008, ultra sound in Aug 2008, yes preggers, ran into issues with Fescue hay, delay in letting milk down, she is now on Dom. Has been for 3 tubes now, we are now dripping milk and have been for 7 days, I know a part of this is due to , the Dom. Im just getting worried, does not seem that baby is getting to big, I have a ton of pictures through out pregnancy, I will post a few...

Any ideas , is she really with foal, phantom, she has been palpitated, but foal was laying to low to feel at the time , she has a small pelvis, and vet didnt want to push any harder ,,,she is changing but there is no possible way , she got covered here, I had no stallions at the time. Am I missing something...
Thanks in advance, I just have never had a mini go this long, having problems with the last picture posting,

Hi michelle, I too am a mini breeder, but i have never had or seen a mini go that long. My longest one was 350 days. I just can't imagine what you're going thru. My vet has a hard time as well, accessing the mare to ultrasound and palpate. But we recently learned that if you shave the hair from their flank areas, you can get a good idea of what is going on with an ultrasound. (the abdominal type)... Just a thought, maybe it'll help your vets help you. Is there a possibility that she came unbred, and rebred later at your place? Do you have stallions there now? I honestly have no idea how a mini could go this long....most of mine go at 315 to 330.

well, we have tried to shave, he said maybe, when he comes back out, we will try again now that she is bigger..No she could not have gotten covered here, it is impossible unless I do it, for them, they are not pasture bred, I decide when and to who, We are all a a loss for words on this one, i will keep checking in, to update and see if anyone else has any , advice or exp. in this area, :-)
