Are there any statistics available on how often a pregnancy is missed via ultrasound? My 21 year old problem mare is looking quite big this year. She is the one with the cyst. She was at the stud's last year from August to September. I had my vet ultrasound her in September and he said she was not in foal.
She also appears to have udder enlargement, but she did that last year also.
I am just fighting with myself back and forth on maybe she is, maybe she isn't. However, if she isn't bred, she needs to be worked and I have a job for her.
At this point she would be 7-8 months in foal. She has had several foals in her life and always has a bit of a broodmare pot, but this seems excessive. I have not been able to catch any foal movement in the flank yet.
I have pics, but not sure where to host them. Some are in Facebook.
Here is the public Facebook link for some photos of Goldie, but I'm warning you there are a ton pics in there. If you go to the bottom of the list, they are the recent ones. She is the palomino. Notice she has one side that looks more prego than the other.
Thanks for that, Katherine. She's a good mare and I will probably do some ponying of a young horse with her this year if she is open. Well, at 7-8 months along she wouldn't look that big, but she is definitely bigger than last year. She does not have a real wide from side to side look though. And I can't feel any foal movement. It's probably all wishful thinking.
