I bought my mare last year. I had her palpated for pregnancy in January. Vet said he didn't feel anything, and added, unless it's hiding! My mare has not come into heat. Should I be seeing some signs by now? She is currently the only horse here at my home. Would that make a difference? I'm thinking about breeding her this year. Thanks for any info!

I am not sure if they will show heat without another horse around. Can you take her over to a neighbor's maybe? Or better yet, borrow a horse from a neighbor to keep around for awhile.

I was wondering about that. Is it normal for them to start comming into heat by now? You can tell I don't have alot of experience with mares. This mare has two very large pouches in front of her udder. Each one completely fills my fist. She had milk back in January when I had the Vet to see her when I thought she might be pregnant. Her udder was enlarged, but she didn't have these large pouches also. The former owners had her yearling colt in with her and didn't know he could breed her. Anyway, her stomach is fat up high, but not on the bottom. I'm always paraniod she is pregnant. I do hope to breed her this year or next.

How Fat is She? Mares can hold a big patch of fat in front of their udders that can almost look like milk udder development. I have a line of broodmares that is very prone to being fat there. If I get a chance I take some pictures of the one that isn't breed this year for you to compare to.

I was just out watching her. I was watching her right side in her flank area and it looked like there was something in there moving all around. I watched her left side for a while and I saw nothing. Can a horse have gas or something that would cause this? I've actually seen this movement quiet a few times. I've owned this mare 310 days today. Do you think there's any way she could be pregnant?
