Ok So I purchase this little yearling filly to help a lady out that could not feed her horses anymore. At the time all I knew about her was who her sire was and what breeds she had in her and her age. Well the lady want to deliver her would not let me come and get her. When she got to my farm the filly need some TLC. So I started feeding her and then she come down with Potomac Horse Fever. So we treat her for that and I noticed that she just seem really wide in the barrel more then any yearling I have every seen. I ask the vet right away about it and he said it was mostly worms. So I have wormed her like he said. But still her belly keeps getting bigger. The next time the vet was out I asked him to check her to make sure she was not pregnant and he said he don't think she was and he really don't wait to palpation her because of how young she is. So he felt around her belly "on her side pushing on it" And said that he did not think so as there was no reacting to him pushing on her. So I left it alone for about two months now and she is even bigger . I called the vet for him to come out again to check her and he said No she is to young and if she has something she has something. I have call alot of other vet close by but none would take her to see her. What do you guys think just fat or a baby is coming.

Please dont mind the dirty horse

Angela, as we know, there is always a possibility that she's in foal if she was housed with a stallion! But, it's also true that underweight horses tend to put weight back on the belly before other parts of the body. IF you can't get a vet to palpate her, I'd suggest getting a weefoal test (order at http://www.weefoal.com) and just testing her pee. It's always better to know than not! :-)

One of the signs of potomac horse fever is abortion by pregnant mares.....I dont know if ALL prego mares abort or not, but I will definitely learn more about it. I've never seen or had a horse that had it...so I'm not much help there!

Yes I know alot about potomac as where we live it is a normal thing. We did catch it before the fever or her coming off her feed. But by looks do you think she is? I'm going to order a Weefoal test.
