Hi im new to these boards and have only been breeding for 3 years i breed Miniature Horses and also starting to breed Harness Ponies anyway my problem is my new mare,
i rescued her at the start of the year with 12 others who were going to be shot, i was given no info on them, and most of the mares are pregnant but the others have been rehomed this mare is getting me worried i dont know her due date but she should be due around now,
ive been watching her closely for awhile and yesterday she started to really sweat up and was quite hot she peed and pooped alot the poo was looseish, she was showing every sign of foaling relaxed vulva which was very pink inside very relaxed around her back end she was restless wouldnt stand still for long etc but she didnt foal she has no udder or milk, would she be having false labour? if she is how long after they have a false labour do they foal?
i bring her in te stable at night with a friend and she is alarmed at night during the day they go into the paddock for a run around and some grass

If you're not positive about a breed date, I'd just let nature take it's course, and wait her out. I have had several mini mares this year not do what they're "supposed" to do or "usually" do udder wise. it would not shock me at all if she waited till the last day to get one LOL. (I had kind of a weird year) Maybe it's possible she's just not as close as you think she is? I have personally never had a mare have false Labor (25 yrs of breeding)I would just keep an eye on her, if she were mine. Not much else you can do, after all.
