OK, this is going to be kind of long. back in Feb.09 my coming two year old stud got in with my mare and bred her. had vet out confirmed her in foal she went 42 days with no signs of heat. then she came into heat and was standing for my colt. she then went 22 days and showed signs of heat again. Had vet out to geld colt and check my mare again she said no she wasn't in foal. colt was gelded, no other studs around, mare never came back into heat...she starting showing signs of a big belly late aug. so now she has some changing in her udders they are slightly turned in and a bit swollen just in front of udder. lots of fetal movement.if she was still in foal from the first breeding that would put her like six weeks away from foaling. if she took the second time he bred her she would be like 3 months from foaling..so I guess my question is, is there anyway for me to tell other then keep a close eye on her? do mares show signs of heat while in foal? is it possible the vet missed it when she ultra sounded her the second time? when do you usally start seeing fetal movement? what stage in the pregnancy do the udders start to change? thank you.

sally, go to www.yellowhouseranch.com and check out her site. She has very great information on what to look for when a mare is close to foaling!
And it's not only possible that they missed it, it's common! I usually see fetal movement around month 9 in the miniature horses, and usually udder development around 6 wks before foaline. Hope any of this helps!

Thanks! I did check out her site this morning when I was searching for info. I, guess everything would fit with the first breeding date. I did the string test this morning and it says filly..LOL

I'm just worried about giving her, her shots?? before foaling...
