Re: how to know

Hello Tama,

If your mare was bred late November of last year, she is past a normal due date. But, you would know if she were pregnant just by looking at her. If you suspect that she is pregnant and just late, contact your vet immediately.

Since you are new to horses, it is a good idea to have your vet out anyway to get her health records going with proper vaccinations, worming, and feeding.

All the best,

Dr. Getty
