    OP: has your vet considered Hydrops? Your mare appears to have the same symptoms as to what was listed in the above posted article. After reading the above, I too suggest that a educated vet be there for delivery.

    Not trying to worry you unduly, but...... better safe than sorry.

    and again sending jingles and hugs.

    Sending jingles!

    Hydrops was suggested on page one, twice. It is a real concern and she will need experienced support if this is the case.

    I had a mare with hydrops and PM'd the OP and offered any help or info I could give.

    After reading the previously posted article...I'd get a "really good" vet on hand immediately or better yet...get the mare to a clinic. This does not appear to be a "back yard" , do it yourself, case. Best of luck to all involved.

    I'm in agreement here - I'd have the mare motored to the clinic absolutey as soon as I could. I wonder why the vet didn't express concern re possible hydrops.

    Jingles for the mare!

    I too am surprised that the vet did not recommend sending this mare to an equine hospital for management in case it is hydrops. I hope the OP can get her mare to a 24 hour equine clinic and that there is a good outcome for the OP and her mare.

    So sorry to read about this. I am so sad about the loss of the foal but also the potential risk to the mare.
    The OP is at least 2 hrs from the equine hospital she was supposed to take the mare on Monday and at this stage, I don't know if such a long trailer ride is safe. Would Ilderton be a better choice for you OP??
    I hope your mare will be fine. Loud jingles going your way!

    I would call Guelph and see if you can get her in right away. I know that they are busy but it could be a matter of life or death.

    Jingles for you and your mare.

    Thank you everyone for your best wishes and comments!

    My vet has been in contact multiple times with Guelph over the last few days. They both believe my mare is carrying twins and that she doesn't have hydrops.

    I am pretty sure she is going to deliver tonight as she is getting into her "ways" so I don't think moving her right now would be the way to go. My vet is on call and said to let him know what is going on. Actually, now that her belly has dropped she doesn't look near as big as she did even yesterday. At this point I am praying it is twins and all goes well as appose to hydrops. I did ask my vet if I should take her anywhere to foal out and he said not to bother with it. So I will continue to keep my fingers crossed!

    Wishing you and your mare well tonight. Sending mega-jingles. There are times when we have to be brave and strong and ready to climb mountains for our mares. I am sending every good thought I have and also adding a few prayers.
