I belong to a mini forum that this year had several minis go over. I think one was 410!
That is a long time. Have you talked to the Vet?
Does she seem ok otherwise?

Yes, I am in contact with my vet. He has called around to some repro specialists and we are still on the wait and see stage. We had palpated her about 3 weeks ago--and the foal was moving and seemed healthy. She appears healthy, shiny coat and fat. She is 19 and has not had a foal in 3 years. I have never had one longer than 362 days.

I know your a bit worried.
I am sure you are , but have to ask, are you positive on your dates?
Is she showing any signs at all?

I bred her on June 29th and July 1st. She teased back on July 16 so we bred her, on July 17 she was not interested. When we us her she appeared "open", she has some folds in her uterus so I am guessing the embryo was hiding there.

You can see the enlarged veins on her belly, and she has a small bag that is starting to fill from the stomach/teats area back. (not like a bag that has some fluids/edema) She is not softening in the hind or have elongation yet. When I try to milk her--it takes a little bit and the fluid is still clear, somewhat stickey. I only have one stud here and he has never gone missing from his pen. So I am positive on the breeding dates. When I got the mare last winter she did not start to cycle in the spring till my other mares foaled and than she was wanting their foals. I just don't know how long I should wait until we decide to induce her. My vet has made some calls to repro specialists and most all seem to think to not induce if not neccesary.

PLEASE DONT INDUCE YOUR MARE.....IT CREATES A TRAINWRECK WHERE THERE WAS NOT ONE BEFORE. If you have a stallion on your place, it is completely possible that you're off on your dates. Even if you handbred, she could have come "unbred" and rebred him thru the fence. THey are tricky!!! I doubt she is that far along, from what you describe....I'll bet she's still got a month or so to go .

I have heard its bad news to induce also. I would wait it out. Do you have pics of your mare you can post?

There are not pastured near each other---so no breeding over/through the fence. My dates are not wrong--I keep records. I am anal that way. I can tell you how manys days each of my mares has gone for all of their pregnancies plus when they started to make changes and what the changes were. I can even give you precise records of the days they were in and how they "showed" to the stallion etc.


I will take pictures this evening.

I just wonder at what point is it not safe for the foal. If I had to choose mare or foal--I would pick the foal as I doubt this mare will take again.

I am sorry your in this position. That must be very difficult. I am curious if you could have an equine repro specialist take a look at her? That may ease your worries. I can just imagine how you are feeling. Is this the first time you have foaled her out? I am just curious as to her past foaling particulars. Her udder development sounds like my mini mare.
she is also filling in the front first:

I wonder if the vet will come back out and recheck since its been almost a month?
Keep us posted.

I am in contact with my vet every few days. Usually he calls or else I do. A friend of mine had owned this mare and has raised 4 foals out of her. She "thinks" that she never went a full year. and one year she had to pull a large foal from her.

Other than waiting for her to kick this baby out--I don't know what else to do.

We just had a full moon a few weeks ago. Someone thought that would get her going.

I have kicked her back out to the pasture with the other mares and fillys. I check her multiple times a day.

Any ideas.
