One year, four breeding cycles, and MUCH drama later, we found out in July that my mare was successfully carrying a foal. Everything looked good at 15 days, then at 30 days, and at 45 days. All breeding and care up to 45 days post breeding occured at the stallion farm. Brought mare home and have not had her rechecked until today. Fast forward until now-- had our "home" vet do a routine check up on her. Palpation felt normal, but when he tried the ultrasound he said everything (ie, fluid) looked normal for an 85 day pregnancy BUT he could not identify a foal. Now, I know that somewhere around this time a foal can disappear down past the pelvic brim... Would ultrasound even be recommended at this time? Vet wants to 'check literature' and recheck her next week, as he is unsure about this timeframe in which the foal could "disappear". Should I even have him come back? His lack of knowledge of when this should occur makes me a little uneasy... He does not have the most experience with ultrasounding mares... Should I order the WeeFoal and try that instead after 120 days? Or wait it out until Spring and just see where we are? Any opinions would be very much appreciated...

Just wanted to update-- mare is confirmed still IN FOAL at 135 days (had an equine specialist come out instead of normal vet) and doing just great!

Thank you for your help!
