its possible shes still pregnant Ive had several cycle then foal. In fact I have a mare that I bought recently she wasnt supposed to be bred and she cycled within the first month here but lastnight I got to looking at her and thought she looked preggo so checked her bag and walla its half full with expressable milk so I figure she'll foal in a wk or 2. Ive only had her 2 months so no way was this my guys doing.

I would watch her, because some mare will show a heat of sort around the third month with the hormone changes. Watch and see if she comes in again in a few weeks. If she does I would have the vet re check her.

Alright Bonny, why do you say mares will show in the 3rd month? B/c now I have dilemmas with a breed date. Scenario:
I have a mare I bred on 5/15 & 5/17...
on 6/5 she was receptive to the stallion although not her usual hussy self...she squatted in front of his stall, so I brought him out to breed her. She stood for him until he mounted, and then tried to get away the entire time he was "yaknow"...so, she was only bred the one time in June, and again on 6/13 she was peeing in front of his stall, but never back in full standing heat since the may breeding. What is my likely breed date here? I have never had a mare do that.

I read somewhere on here, I think Jos said it, though I cant remember for positive, that its not all that uncommon for mares to show around the 3rd month of gestation, I know it is hormone related but not entirely sure why. I will try to find it if not maybe someone else can verify this theory?
I remember this because My Paint mare bred in Feb then no cycle March and in April around her 12th week gestation I saw her flirting again with the gelding next door and I happened to read that and it was coincidence that is what was going on with my mare. She was confirmed in foal and is now almost 6 months.

I dont know what to say about your girl Diana, thats only a cycle apart.Has she cycled since?
I would see if the vet can verify fetal age if not watch her starting next April! :-)

no, she hasn't cycled since. I just don't know if that one day of "kinda interested" counted as a final breed date, or she was possibly already bred. She's never done this to me before....

Diana: Hey...Blossom does that behavior. I bred her for three successive months last year thinking that she hadn't taken because she was just to "hussy" and continually let my stallion mount and breed her. I took her to the equine vet thinking that I had a hormonal imbalance going on with getting her bred...only to find out that she was 3 months into gestation. Blew my mind! I "assumed" that she took more on the second month of exposure since I only bred her on the tail end of her first heat cycle the first time....lo and behold, she wasn't "due" until the end of April according to what I thought was the breeding date (second exposure). Guess what??? Got a foal 3 weeks early...NOT! She took on the first breeding. I think you are going to have to just be prepared that she may have taken on the first breeding. Prepare for the first exposure date and if she's not developing foaling "signs" then I think you can savely assume the other date.

If you really want to know, I'd do at least a simple palpation. The vet can usually tell how far along you are. But, I do know that the foal falls down under the pelvic bone region between the 3rd month through the 9th month of gestation and the vet can't always reach it anymore so if this is the route you want to take, I'd do it fairly soon.

:-)

same here. Bred in early june last year no heat ( checked everyday) tell early aug. breadagain but only stook 1/2 way ( didnt really want to but she showed heat so we mad her0 she foaled july 10th very very very big with milk for almost 2 months, showing sign of pending foaling for 2 months.....
or repo vet told us very commen but the contamination tends to abort the pregs alltogether so he belived that she took on the 2nd date.

BEPREPARED FOR THE FIST DATE BUT DONT WorRY IF SHE GOES OVER! thats what i was told.
