Has anyone ever had a broodmare who was not bred show signs of phantom pregnancy when her maiden pasturemate, who is bred,and "due" in the next 2-3 weeks is hardly showing any signs?
Its driving me nuts. Tessa, the broodmare, is huge, bagging up, staying close to the barn, etc.
Bonnie, well, she's never done anything by the book!
She's not dropping, no udder, still chasing the dogs, (though not as far!) The only indication I have(other than 2 positive ultrasounds at 18 and 60 days) is her tight,tight,lob-sided belly and the fact that she pins her ears when I touch it. And one "punch" and a "flutter".
I'm glad to be reading the posts of other maiden owners who have the same concerns as I do. A good friend says, "Bonnie is in total denial with this pregnancy!"
I'll have to separate the two real soon. I've a feeling Tess will steal the baby!!

There is no way Tess could be pregnant. If she is, I'll have to change her name to "Mary"!

Tess is a great broodie and mother. Easy breeder, textbook pregnancies, great babies. She loves it!
I've heard of phantom pregancies and seen it in dogs.

I guess Tess will tell me when Bonnie is ready to foal! LOL!

I wish I had a definite answer for you but I dont really know.
I would wonder if it is because she has been a broodmare that its just her bodys way with it being Spring now. That I have read before.
LOL, lets hope she isnt a Mary haha. Do you have pics of your Bonnie?

Well, I have no bred mares at my place and my mare who is an 18 year old with many past foals bagged up and got milk. So it happens. Her udder has since gone back down.
