O, no! 

Carly - was she out with the stallion after you saw her covered?  I'm wondering if she was covered again later than you thought?  OR she just may be one who carries much longer.  It's hard to say.  Some mares are never consistent with their carry dates either.

I know a couple on here have had mares go much longer than 330/344 days (Diane?).

Yup, I had a mare that went 365 days like clockwork!  The first year it almost killed me since I was never told that from the breeder I purchased her from.  But the second year, I was a bit more relaxed, and kept checking the dates, and sure enough.....365 days again!

She had several foals for me before I sold her to a friend.  I shared the 365 saga with her, but she didn't believe me, until once again, baby came to ground at 365 days!  LOL

I don't recall him covering him after that date, usually Id write it down in the calendar. But its something I could have easily missed.

She has been laying down a lot over the past few days, sweating and swishing her tail. When she lays down she will do a short few breaths and hold her breath for a few seconds and let it out again and relax. But I have also seen her yesterday rolling a bit. So I was thinking she was just uncomfortable.

I am just really confused on her udder. They were quite large for a few days and now they are tiny.  :-\

Don't worry about udders.  She can fill an udder at foaling time so I'd watch more for signs such as the rolling, personality changes, etc.  Maybe I'm not remembering correctly but didn't you say she foaled in the past with no udders?

I'll get an update on Willow very soon.
We have just had some wild weather, then a lot of rain to top it from Cyclone Debbie. Completely flooded here, had to get my chickens to higher ground again last night even after we raised their hutch with bricks. The horses were all rugged and put under shelter, eager to come out for a play now that its all over.  Now we are just fixing the place up again, pumping the water out of the yard.
Its FREEZING here now!
