Oh my!  Well, one of my mares carried 365 days each and every year, so it can be "normal" for some of these little ones!

Come on Darci!!

My AQHA mare went almost a year to the day for her maiden pregnancy.  I bred her the first week of April, she foaled the last day of March (maybe it was the second from last day, I can't remember how many days March has, and I'm too lazy to flip the calendar on the wall).  And, she hardly showed.
First pic is March 2, second pic is March 30

I think we are all just a bit flummoxed because she got a bag in early june, it then went away just as Charms did (charm then lost the foal both mares were bred on the same week) i seen her about three weeks ago and she had an elongated vulva and salt fluid but no real bag and not much of a shape...but i expected things to damn well move along by now!

Her owners getting worried now that it's a phantom pregnancy. Her dam had one first time she got covered. She's showing all foaling  signs but nothing happening and isn't overly round looking. She said vet definitely felt movement and said she was in foal but they can always be wrong.

If she's maiden, she doesn't need to look round at all.  Think of them carrying up high and tight.

When did the vet feel movement?

Just take a look at the pictures I posted above of my AQHA mare her maiden pregnancy, she didn't look very pregnant, and went around 360 days.   I didn't know any better then, so I wasn't watching her bag much, don't know what it looked like when she foaled or right before.

And, Diane's favorite pictures of Tana's maiden pregnancy.  They are in the archives for this sort of thing, but posting here too.  She did foal a normal 320 day pregnancy, or there about; but didn't look very pregnant nor ready to foal.
Pics are about 8:30am and right after lunch.

Yes I showed those pics to her. Vet was out about three weeks ago - he said there was too much movement on the screen to be guts moving and at this late stage I doubt you can see anything in the way of an actual body. She's not sure if he actually put his hand in.

Going to see her tomorrow and see if I think she's changed shape. I don't want to post pics on here as not my pics to share but I'm keeping myself optimistic (hahaha me?! First time for everything) cause I just really can't stand another "loss"

Yes, when they get too far along it's hard to tell.  So, we'll just pray for a safe delivery, and ask your friend if you can post a picture or two to share with us!  Or, you can ask her to join us!

Nothing yet. She did have a slight bag and owner thought it had gotten bigger last night - golden fluid coming out. It's been full year since she was covered by banner and owner never saw her with her own stallions but it's always a possibility (sneaky animals) so vets coming out on Wednesday again to see what's happening. she has lost some belly and looks less pregnant now than she did a few weeks ago so really could be empty and has had a phantom pregnancy. Gah.
