I had the exact same situation in 2003. We rescued a two year old filly in april that was soo skinny it honestly didn't even cross my mind to get her preg checked; anyway we got her fed up to a healthy weight and looking good even started her under saddle and then she started bagging the end of july got her checked and yep pregnant. She never looked pregnant until the last two weeks and then just barely. We made sure we were there for the foaling and she did pretty well except for a minor positioning problem that I was able to fix (foal was coming slightly sideways). The filly was small and very skinny, dysmature I think they called it but I think it was caused by her mom being so underweight until we got her. We also milked some colostrum from the mare to syringe feed the baby as she seemed to need an extra boost to stand. other than that everything was fine. The filly is now 17mos, 15 hands and healthy. Some say that a mare having a baby that young stunts the growth of the mare but we haven't noticed that; the mare has grown from 14.2 to 15.2 and she may still add a little, so delayed the growth maybe but not stunted it. So stay aware of everything, work with your vet and hope everything goes good because it probably will. Good luck!
