I posted this at the end of another thread but I decided it should have it's own thread so more people will see it. When I took this video, I turned the camera so I could focus on the flank area. I forgot that I can't rotate the dang thing so it's sideways. Anyway, I have no experience with pregnant mares, but I've never seen another horses stomach make the kinds of movements that my mares makes. She has a large lumpy stomach which she didn't have when I bought her. The people I bought her from last summer had 2 stallions. Vet palpated last week, she said she "can't feel anything". Can I positively assume this is NOT a foal moving?????
There is a lot of movement there. It looks like a foal rolling around to me, but she is way past normal gestation length now right? She is also not as big as I would expect to see for how far along she is so it's a tough one to call!
You're right Christa, she is not as big as a mare should be and the video was taken when I had owned her 335 days, so if she were bred, it was before that. But then see all this talk with mares going in the 370 days and more, It just makes me wonder if its possible. Why the heck would she have that movement like that?
