Hi Tania (waves) another UK memeber, as you know LOL! For what it's worth, I think your mares are both round about their 340 days but as everyone here will tell you, they can easily go another month or even more beyond. I think there were one or two over 400 days last year
I'm not sure on the usefulness of the scan in predicting the date but it can eliminate the worry of twins so I would always scan now (after losing twins from an unscanned mare last year).
Re your mare who hasn't bagged, I am in the same position with Maybelline who is steadfastly refusing to make any sort of bag at all....I can't think she can possibly go another month but then we've been saying that since October...... I believe (and want to believe) that they can bag up pretty much as they are due to foal. I hope so..... My vet said I should try and source some colostrum but of course this time of year anyone who has any is hanging onto it for dear life. They can have a plasma transfusion but it is very expensive......
Anyhow, I am sure your mares are just fine and will foal normally when they are ready.
My other maiden mare from last year only bagged as much as Ru has now, didn't wax, didn't run milk.
Guess they are like us humans, none are the same.
