I have a question about the sizes of my 2 mares udders. Mare #1 is a maiden and 7 years old. Mare #2 is 5 years old and has had 2 foals. One just before she was 3 and one just before she was 4. Poor baby herself! I just bought her in July! I was told by the former owners that she wouldn't stand for their stallion this year or last year and they put her up for sale. They said she is not pregnant. In comparing the two mares udders, the maiden mare is tiny and no udder at all. My poor 5 year old has a large udder, large nipples, MUCH larger than the maiden mare. Now I expect her udder to be bigger of course as she has had 2 babies, but she is also getting FAT. Her stomach is quite large and round. I'm getting a little concerned. I'm sorry for such a long post, but I guess my question is, should her udder and nipples be ALOT larger than the maiden mares? I've always had geldings before.

Thank you all for any knowledge you can share with me.

Joyce, all mares are different, we have one mare that has had 5 foals in the past and her udder is still pretty small when she is not pregnant. But we have one mare that has only had 2 foals in the past and her udder is very large and her nipples are very large, large enough that many people see her udders from a distance and call her a gelding poor baby. So it could be that she just has large udders, but she could be pregnant you never know for sure unless you owned them from the begining. The best way to tell is have her checked by a vet. If you have pictures of her you could post them. That would give us a better idea of what you are talking about. Anyhow hope that helped some.

Thank you Kassie! I got so hung up on Christmas, I totally forgot about my post here. I will try to post a picture that I took today.

Does anybody else have any opinions? All are appreciated!
