How often to vets miscall a pregnancy? My rescue mare was originally listed as 'possibly pregnant ' on the kill pen sight, but I noticed that 1) about half the mares were listed the same way and 2) A BUNCH of people were commenting that they had gotten horses listed as possibly bred that weren't. I assumed it was a sympathy ploy, ignored it. Then my shipper picked her up and called me, saying shE looked heavily pregnant and I should get her checked ASAP. WHAT. Okay, vet, come check! Vet came, reached in, groped around, called me and said no, not pregnant. Anemic, and a huge belly full of poor quality hay and worms. I stopped worrying about it. I have NEVER had a vet call onE of our animals (dairy cows ) open when they were pregnant, although had a few declared pregnant when not. I mean, where would a baby hide? She is a thin horse, other than the big belly nothing but skin and bones. THEN I brought her home. First words out of my neighbors mouth. "Oh my god, is she pregnant?!" These people have foaled multiple horses. "A vet checked and said no. . . " And today, I noticed her udder. Just that, I noticed it. I could see it when she was walking. I hadn't really seen it before, so I can't say if it has changed or not. My neighbor helped me turn her out into a small paddock we made, and her comment watching her waltz about was "Wow, I can definitely see she HAS foaled before, if I didn't know better I would say she is due again!" WHAT Do we know better? ?? Could a vet somehow not feel a growing foal???? Can they hide??? I have another vet coming thursday, and I will have her check again. And maybe again. How often are vets wrong?? Is it even possible? Am I crazy for freaking out?
