Hi all, just registered but have been here reading for a couple of months.

My question pertains to a miniature mare bred last spring, whom the vet palpated at 6 months as "open" and said she could feel the uterus and it did not have the tone it should have if a foal is in there. This mare's belly has continued to grow, but not the rest of her, and she is not fed excessively as she's an air fern. Our paddock is pretty much a large dry lot, so no grass.

I keep a close eye on this girl, and am second-guessing whether or not I feel movement. Due NOW if there IS a foal. No udder yet, but she apparently does not bag till delivery according to the farm she came from.

So to get to the point (sorry!), how easy would it be to miss detecting a pregnancy at 6 months by palpation?

I think it is actually pretty easy to miss a pregnancy at 6 months, due to the position that the foal is in. Do you have pix of the mare?
