I have some questions. My friend has two mare that have been bred to there gypsy vanner stallion. I'm going to foaling them both out one was last bred of 9-29-07 rosie and the other 10-29-07 lilly. They did not have them check at all. But we did do the weefoal and they came out not peggo. So we don't think anythng of it but they both are getting fatter and they have never come back in heat and they run with the stallion and I'm over there ever day so I see them and he never mount them after there last breeding date. and we have tease them to make sure and they don't show any sign. But rosie doesn't have a bag at all and she is 315 days and we have not seen the foal move at all? Is that normal Rosie has had 1 foal that we know about
It's not uncommon for her not to have a bag....and I have had a few foals that I NEVER saw foal movement from. She may not bag until days before foaling. Is it possible you did wee foal test too early? On the other hand, it is possible that she lost the foal after 35 days gestation (formation of endometrial cups) which would cause her not to come back into heat for a long time (I beleive 220 days or so) You could have the vet palpate and enlighten you as to your mare's condition....or just wait. I would imagine they're both bred....I would definitely not have them with the stallion if they're going to foal soon.
They are not my mares but they are now not with the stallion as them being so close to foaling date
