That's edema. Mares can have that if they are overweight or its a start of bagging up. Since she doesn't look overweight, I'd watch for the edema move back into her bag.

That's a great start, and that sounds like what I referred to as "cylinders". Also, be sure she is off of any fescue grass!!  That will prevent the mare's milk from coming in and causing problems for the pair after foaling.

 

EDITED to add...if you think they feel like bee stings, then those are NOT the cylinders that I was referring to afterall.

When your feeding her next, Put your hand flat under her stomach just in front of her udder, you should be able to feel movement/kicks ect.

 

The veins and the lumpy bits are edema , which is perfectly normal :)

 

Could be the camera angle but if you compare the photos of her udder form the 8-12th , It looks like there is a little development in that department.

 

Thanks for the pics  :ThumbUp
