Hi, Well here is my story, I bought a mare on April 1st,2007. She had been in a pasture with a stud before that, but i wasn't sure she was bred so in July i took her to get her bred, i left her there for a month, she never took the stud, i had her palputated in aug. & the vet said she wasn't bred, now 2 weeks ago she had some swelling in the toward the front of her bag, i isolated her by herself & in a couple days it went back down, so i turned her back out, this week her bag got as big as two first curled up, so i isolated her again, now the bags swelling has gone back down...do you think she is pregnant or not???? Oh, when she was bagged up i did squeeze her nipple and got somewatery stuff out of it??? Advise is appreciated...thank you, sandy

Do you have pictures you can post of her and her udder? She could be bred and as the foal may have dropped over the pelvic and not have been detected by palpation. How many foals has your mare had?

Hi Bonny,
I don't have any pictures, maybe i can have my daughter take some for me. Mystic (my mare) has never had any colts. She has me sooo confused, I didn't know that mares could bag up & then have it go away? She has done this twice, the 1st time she just had a little swelling in the front quarter, & the 2nd time it was about the size of putting your two first curled up..I haven't tried the string test that people have discussed about on this forum before..i'll try that tonight. People probably think i'm crazy...last week i told people, yeah, my mare is going to have a colt, but now that her bag has gone away ...i don't know

Actually it is very common for Mares to bag up then go away. Now realize that I have not had a foal before, but the mare I just required was supposed to be in foal. So I read as much as I could get my hands on. I have a paint mare I am waiting to see if she is in foal also as we speak.
I dont know why else she would have this bagging going on unless she is pg. Maybe some one else knows why. Being a maiden they can carry the foal differently and it can be difficult to tell. But as she gets closer you will notice her tail top area will appear more sunken and her tail will have little resistance when you lift it. Her vulva will also go deeper red inside and will elongate.
Good luck and hope your mare has a healthy foal for you!
