I have a 21 yr old quarter horse mare who is 7 months preg with her 4th foal. However this time she seems to be really tender around her belly and by her flanks, somedays she will try to kick u if u touch her. She has never done this with any of the other pregnancies and she has never been a kicking horse. The last baby she had was 8 yrs ago. So would this be normal or is there something wrong, shes never been this way before

Did she have any complications with her last preg.? if she all of a sudden got her prego belly it could be that the muscles are a little over stretched and tender and that a little time will ease it.

Her last baby she had was 8 yrs ago, and she didnt really have any problems, the only thing was, that the foal was late so he was a little bigger than the others and the vet had to help out a little with the whole birthing process. She has always had a big belly even when she was not pregnant. Now she is 7 months preg. and i have been noticing this since she was about 5 months preg.

Sorry the only thing I can think of is that its the foals position or maybe she has some tissue trama left from her last foaling. Sometimes in ppl once a muscle has been tramatized (dificult birth) it doesnt stretch properly. also scar tissue doesn't stretch if she has any. I'm only giving you food for thought and repeating what my DR told me when I complained that this preg is more painful than my other 3.

I think you need to get a vet out ASAP!!!!! This is not something we can help you online. Colic is common in pregnant mares and she could die, please call a vet!

Brietta, how is your mare? Did you get the vet to come out for her? I'm praying she is alright. Please let us know as soon as you can.

Brietta, I have a mare who got colic about 10 weeks of from foaling and she lost the foal. It is very common for colic to induce early labour in pregnant mares.
