I am completely new to breeding so I am hoping somebody can help me out here!

I currently own two horses - one 17 y.o. APHA mare and her yearling colt. The mare was used a broodmare by her previous owners and I am going to breed her one last time at the end of this month to the colt's father, who is conveniently located next door.

I spoke with my vet and he told me that I would need to trailer her in for an ultrasound to confirm pregnancy. For too many reasons to outline here, trailering is NOT an option for us. I know without a doubt that it will pose serious risks for my mare if I try to trailer her in based on her past history.

I asked if there were any other ways to confirm pregnancy but my vet told me that the only way is through ultrasound and that my only option to get that done would be trailering her in.

Is anybody aware of any other pregnancy tests that can be done?

Ultrasound is not the only way, but it is the only responsible way... Read the article on this site about twinning and you will understand why.

Hi, I brought a TB mare 7 weeks ago and the owner had a pregnancy test which came back negative. However her belly just keeps growing and she is very thin. It would be her first foal, when the vet came out to look at another thing she suspected she could be in foal. Are there phantom pregnancy's for horses? Any help would be appreciated. If some one could tell me how I will try and load up a photo.

Shatsa what kind of test did you give her? Or did you have vet give one?
