Do you have any advice on a mare that's bagged up? It's her first foal.

She foaled a beautiful paint filly on April 27th
My seasoned broodmare bags up a good month before foaling. My other mare didn't bag up till her foal hit the ground. Every horse is different, but always good to check with a vet if you are concerned
Hello Johnnie, it's not really unusual but to make sure everything is okay I advise you to call the vet who will be able to ultrasound. It's her first foal so you can't know what is usual for her or not but some mare bags up quite early!
