    Is my mare big for 8 months pregnant

    I have been looking at other peoples pregnant mares and I think my mare is really big for being 240 days along. I am really nervous about this pregnancy since I got her when she was 4 months along and am unsure of twinning. Vet did a palp and didnt' say anything about 2 in there. She is due July 22nd. She is 12 yo and this will be her 2nd baby. Thanks for looking

    I dont think she's to big. Maybe its a big baby in there. Now we have to wait until July to see the baby? Dang

    She's probably carrying a large foal. What's the sire's size?

    That's how I know.

    That is the main reason I am worried because Dad is a Percheron. He is on the smaller size and all the Arab mares that have been bred to him, have had Fantastic babies with no probs but I am still worried.

    wow, a percheron sire to an arab mare, that is quite the cross. What are you going to be using the foal for? Do you have any pics of past breedings of this cross?

    I don't know her parents she isn't registered and I got her from an auction.......
    She jumped the fence to be with my neighbors guy......NFQH and AQHA buckskin greying out. He used to be the same color as my girl
