Is it normal for a pregnant mare to be acting a little studdy? My mare is currently 86 days pregnant and she has been doiung some stallion behavior for the last 2 weeks. The last time she was checked for pregnancy was at 51 days. She is going to have a 90 day check next week. Could this be caused from having a different gender foal? She has had 2 fillys so far with me and has never acted this way before, but she had 2 colts with her last owner so I am not sure how she acted when pregnant with them. When she is not tired from excercise approching another horse gelding or mare she does this weird thing of snorting, prancing and raising her tail like she is getting ready to breed or something she also archs her neck. I tell her knock it off then she is fine. I was just wondering if this is a normal thing or should have talk to the vet about it next week? Any advice.
Thank you Jos. I feel a lot better now. It just means that she is having a healthy pregnancy. Yeah. Good thing I didn't ask the vet I would have felt like a dummy. LOL. I have tried on multiple occasions to use the search but every time I use it the screen says internal error. Then I cannot search. But thanks for sending me the threads I feel a lot better now. Phew.
