Could someone help me with this question? I'd rather not have to type the whole explanation again, so if you could read this thread and respond here I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks a million,

I will give you my standard answer to your question, what does your vet say?

Vet can't get here until late next week. Meanwhile, is it possible to have milk without pregnancy? Is it possible not to be able to feel tho foal moving at 6+ months. Does she *look* pregnant (I know, I know, you can't tell from a pic)? Etc...

Any help, shared experiences, opinions while I await the vet would be much appreciated.

Yes they can have milk without pregnancy, I have even used a barren mare as a nurse mare with the help of hormones. I think it is possible to feel a mare being gassy, feeling a foal is very hard to tell if it is foal or digestive issues. One week for a vet? Yikes I have have kittens when I have to wait 30 minutes!

And unlike one of the posters said on the other site--mares can have false pregnancys-I had one. She got huge everyone thought she was 11 months preggo even the vet prior to palptating her. She got a full udder etc.... Just never had a foal cause there was not one. Vet said she may have been bred and lost it early and the hormones just continued or it could have just been a hormonal issue
