One foal was from the same sire.

Was she in foal to the same stallion with this one? 
Don't forget that the
foal is the one that determines gestational length,
not the mare.  And
that the foal gets half of its genetics from daddy. 
Our family that
routinely takes a year or more all trace back to my
stallion--he had such an impact on due dates that
virtually every mare
bred to him took close to a year.  Didn't matter how
long their gestations
had been by other stallions.  I am still seeing the
tendency in his
grandkids--doesn't matter whether they are by his
son or out of one of his
daughters or granddaughters...
