Hey everyone, i just got this new mare last week and im a little worried that she may be pregnant. i now i need to have a vet come out and see her but it wont be for a few weeks until my other mare gets preg checked, so i thought i would ask your opinions. she has no interest in the stud and he pretty much ignored her and started to eat the grass outside her pen.
heres a few pics:

i know her last foal was four years ago, but last year she was leased to a lady who put her out with a stud and her original owner didnt get her back until last month. she may be bred from anytime between then.
thanks guys!

The only way to know if a mare is pregnant is having a vet check them. Pictures don't do really much at all.... For what it's worth though, she doesn't look the least bit pregnant to me.

thanks guys! i sure hope she isnt, and im being silly, but i will for sure have the vet check her if she still hasnt come into heat by the time the vet comes out for my other mare. i am just worried because i have had her for long enough that unless she just went out of heat when i got her, she should be back in by now:-( ....

i just relooked at when i got the mare, and i actually got her TWO weeks ago, not just one, which means she for sure should have come back in unless she is bred or already in the winter phase...

Actually mares ovulate on average of every 21 days, 3 weeks. So it's perfectly normal that she hasn't come into heat in 2 weeks.

well, i know the entire cycle last that long, with 5-7 days showing signs(heat) and the 14-15 days in between not being receptive. so she should be showing every 14-15 days for 5-7 days

All mares are different. My mare has always been a silent heater. Not a hussy at all...so we always had to ultra sound to figure where she was in her cycle....
