Hi all: I have a friend who has a small (about 11-12 hands) welsh pony mare. She is in foal and due in March. She's getting pretty big and the owner said she is too small for a vet to ultrasound her, etc. She is now worried about maybe twins...of course too late if she does have twins, but can they be checked like our regular mares and have one pinched? Can she be palpated now? She was going to have her MD friend listen for heart beat...I told her I didn't think you could hear the heartbeat...is that right? Just trying to give her some good advice....Kim

Kim, all my minis have been ultrasounded, but some vets don't feel comfortable with them. They can be with the right vet. Yes, they can be palpated as well. I don't know about the twin pinching...especially this late into it. And no, a heartbeat cannot be heard in a mare....

Thanks Diana...I was pretty sure about the heartbeat thing...but not about the palp and/or ultrasound. I think maybe a small vet could do the palp or ultrasound...she's bigger than a mini! I think she's worried that the arm would be too big to go into her....anyway, thanks! Kim

Kim,
There shouldn't be any problem palpating or ultrasounding a Welsh pony mare, just make sure the vet knows what he/she is doing.

Diana,
Hopefully the foal does not come out the same hole that gets palpated/ultrasounded!! LOL
Maybe that's a mini-horse thing. LOL

wow, no kidding! Actually, I was thinking of when my vet had to go in and turn my foal when I wrote that.....but yes, even in the other hole....palpation is ok. LOL
