I think she is going to be a hard mare to tell pregnancy by looking at her. You should be able to feel foal movement by now.
Please keep us updated. I am anxious to know!

Ill have a go at feeling movement this afternoon :)

Well if it helps, when she was pregnant in 2014 with Bam-Bam, we were told she was pregnant, 2 years went by and no foal, she looked pretty much the same the whole time, then one day I looked at her udders when I was grooming her back legs and they were massive, a week later she foaled. If I hadn't have looked at her udders when I was grooming her we would have never known.

I agree , Looking at her , I wouldnt think she was but as we know, mares are sneaky and will keep you guessing :)

Being that she didnt show any great signs until you noticed the full udder, Id be keeping an eye on her :)

^^^^^^^^What Ryan said.

It's always better to be prepared and then be disappointed for no foal, than to NOT be prepared and lose a foal.

Either way, we'll be looking for updates and stories.

I, too, was shaking my head, until I read your story about her looking the same, and only noticing the udder.  In that case, we'll just "be prepared" and look forward to more pictures as we wait and watch!

I really do hope she is in foal as this is the last foal I am asking of her. I am taking her away from Toby in a few weeks for good to let her 'retire' I guess you could say, she is 17 now, I feel as though she deserves it, she has been a brood mare her whole life before me. I just want Kevin to fully recover from his gelding before I put her with him.

I'll keep updating :) I wonder if a pregnancy test could come in handy?

I just did some searching just then. I found the Weefoal one for $37.
Its at Victoria so it shouldn't take too long to get here. The other ones I found all needed to take blood, I'd much prefer just urine.
Its apparently its 98% accurate.

I attached 2 screenshots of the website.

As far along as she could be the wee foal 120 would do the trick!
I hope she's in foal for you, please let us know asap!!
