I have a question about palpation in the pregnant mare. What is the time frame on palpating? I know sometime in the middle of the pregnancy it is hard to palpate and a foal can be missed because it falls down past the hip. I was wondering about what month that happens.
From about 60-90 days through to about 150 days it can be difficult to actually reach the fetus. After that the fetus becomes large enough to be within reach again - some of the time! It moves around though!
