Ok we are on my mares third try to breed this year.....anyway took her in yesterday if the stud owner was honest with me(would not be surprised if he lied) yesterday would have been the 20th day after her last cover. Well the vet said on palpatation he would say she is bred but when looking with the ultrasound he said her vesicle looked much larger than it should be at 20 days????????? so gave me a maybe on the pregnancy. I will be taking her back next friday for another ultrasound he said a heartbeat should be able to be detected by then if she is pregnant
It sounds very weird to me-- could it be her last cover date was 2 days before and she would be at day 22 --is the vesicle size much different in a couple days time?
I am confused

Bear in mind that there are not "standard" diameters, but they can vary slightly. It's not like the mare looks in a book and says "oh, I'm x days pregnant, so the vesicle has to be y centimeters in diameter"
You should be able to check any time after about day 22-23 for a heartbeat.

The same thing happened with me when I took my mare in to be checked. My mare is definately preggo, she's been checked twice now. We believe my mare took on her first cover (and was just a hussy the next 2 times! )Your mare could have taken on an earlier cover too. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!
