I have a 7 year old Foundation Quarter Horse who is 6 months pregnant. She has been having some different behaviors. Recently she has been laying down a lot, and not eating all of her meals which is rather strange for her. This is my first pregnant mare, and don't know much. Are these normal behaviors this early in the pregnancy? Thanks!

Since nobody else answered you about this I will. I am no expert, but I would be concerned about your mare since this time of year she could also have an impaction or something else going on. I doubt the foal would be big enough to be really bothering her. Maybe take her temperature and vitals and decide if a vet needs to be called.

I think this is a little early in the pregnancy for your mare to be behaving this way. When in doubt call the vet.

My mare is 9mo now, I came home the other day to find here lying down in the pasture, with her nose almost touching the ground then she would raise up some and nod off again.
Then one of the geldings walked over to her and she pinned her ears at him, and then started to roll, of course I was getting panicky that she was colicing, but then she got up and shook off and started running the gelding.

So I guess she is just getting so heavy she needs to get off her feet some ?

This mare NEVER lets you catch her down, if she is in the barn and hears someone coming she is on her feet, so I guess thats what scared me.

It sounds very normal to me :-)
