Pictures of Pregnant mares?

Can anyone post pictures of the mare in foal from 6 months to right before birth?

As you guys remember I bought an auction horse and was told by my vet she is at least 6 months pregnant or further along. My vets arm wasn't long enough to reach and touch the foal to determine how big it was and tell me when she would foal other than she is at least 6 months.

So I was hoping that maybe seeing some pictures of your pregnant mare would help me decied if it would be in the next month or longer?

Here are pictures of her today from this morning. These are 2weeks after I got her home.

I just don't think she is ready to deliver like my mare in the pic. I would agree with your vet with her being 6 or so months along. She definately bred though! Nice mare.

She is just as sweet as she is pretty. She really is on of those auction buys that everyone hopes for. I really got blessed with her. I only wish she was registered. I still lover her though.

I'd have to say as much as I'm hoping for it to be now I think she won't foal till spring. If I look at her fron behind she doesn't even look pregnant. From the side those she is very round. She seems to be carrying way up in her ribs.?
