So I have a maiden mare that was bred last may and is supposed to be due in April. We had her ultra-sounded at 21 days and came back nothing, palpated at 43 and told nothing by the same vet. Had a different vet out at 60 and told she was pregnant. So I have been treating her like she is pregnant, got all her shots on time and no problems, she appeared to be progressing well. She is normally a hard keeper, but was gaining weight really well. In the past few months the area around her teats has started filling up though her teats have remained on the small side.
She has like red speckles on the inside of her vulva and is really sensitive to the touch around her flank area (something that she has never had a problem with before) her overall mood has changed as well.

Anyways I had the vet out today to do a palpation, cause I noticed that I hadn't seen the baby move in a while and I wanted to do a general checkup on her. this is my regular vet(the first vet to check her) and She said again that she is open, but can't explain any of the "signs" that Ginger is going through. She said it might be cushings, but Ginger was tested for that not long ago and came back neg and she is showing none of the signs (other then a belly), she said that she could be going through a false pregnancy, though she didn't think so since she is a maiden mare. and she settled on the fact that I just have a fat mare on my hands. My only problem with that is that last year when I was trying to put weight on her she was getting like 8-10 lbs of grain a day and still only breaching a 1000 and now on only 5 lbs she is between 1100 and 1200lbs and it is the same food. Is it possible for a vet to mis-diagnose a pregnancy by palpation at 309 days, or what are the other things that could have happened to the foal.

Here are some pics if you can link to them of her at what would be 299.

We have a high risk mare and we ultrasound every month to look at heartbeat, clear fluid, etc. My mare is 9 months, I can clearly see the baby on ultrasound. My vet can also clearly feel baby by palpation. Maybe an ultrasound is worth a try, then YOU can see what is going on in there!
