Hi Melanie, Did you get the gelding at the same time as the mare? What is his age? I would suggest that if you have not already wormed him, do that straight away. What is he getting to eat apart from grazing? You can give him soaked beet pulp added to some complete horse pellets (preferably extruded as they are easier to digest) if he isn't already getting it. You could also add some canola oil (start off with a 1/4 cup) to his feed. And I really would encourage you to get the vet to see him - he might need his teeth floated and a thorough check up (also for your mare so that you can be sure of her pregnancy and approximate date of parturition). It is difficult to say exactly what could be causing him problems with lifting his head. As you obviously really care about these animals and have their best interests at heart, I would suggest that you appeal to your folks to go to the expense of getting the vet.

I still think your mare could be pregnant, but again, the vet would be a better bet than any of us here.

Please keep us posted and let us know how both of them are doing. Remember to take some broadside pics of the mare.

yeah we got him right before we got the mare, he was much more skinnier when we got him. you could see his rib bones really bad. we wormed him last month i think. we have been feeding him 5 cups of sweet feed twice a day and then he gets treats like apples and carrots once in a while during the day. yeah thats what we think he needs is his teeth floated because when he eats his sweet feed some of it just comes out really quick, ive been telling my parents he needs his teeth floated. so today i am going to get my mom to call the vet. i have some more better pictures of the gelding, my sister is really worried about his neck since he cant really lift it up all the way, like he walks with his head down. people have asked us if he was death. but he hears pretty good. ok i will get some more pics of beauty this afternoon.

Good for you Melanie. I think once he has had his teeth floated, he will feel a lot better. You can still add soaked beet pulp to his feed as well as Canola oil. It cannot harm him. If he is an older boy, switch his food gradually to a senior feed as again, it is easier to digest.

It's hard to tell Melanie, as she was eating grass. If someone was holding her head up I would say yep thats foal movement. Get Mom to call that vet!!! Cause we are all dying to know! LOL. The vet will also be able to estimate how far along she is after her exam. You are doing a great job plumping up your horses, I know they are happy to be with you.

As Lynn says Melanie, it is hard to tell. Best time to get the video of movement is when she is at rest. Some mares have huge gas movements in their belly - enough to make people think it is a foal. Put your hand in front of her bag and just hold it there quietly when you think there is foal movement. They almost push against your hand. But again, it depends on how far along she is.

At 15, your gelding is not that old. One of my older geldings I had is now 31 and he is a TB. But senior feed will do your gelding good and so will the beet pulp, oil and teeth floating. It will take a while for him to put his weight back on and feel 100%. And as Lynn says, you have their best interest at heart and really care about them and you are doing a great job of doing what the previous owner failed to do - and that is giving them a good home, good feed and love and attention. Keep at it. And let us know what the vet has to say about both.

yeah i really need to get my mom to get the vet...i have been trying my hardest to get her to call the vet but if she doesnt tomorrow then i will call the vet and talk to them...yeah i really love my horses and would do anything for them...yeah i see alot more movement when she is eating but when she is at rest i can rub where i have seen the movement and something will push up against my hand when i am rubbing on her belly and sometimes there will be a lump there and i will rub it and it will go away for about 5 seconds and then it will push back at me...does that sound like foal movement??....and how could you tell if it is gas movement...i have watched the other mare up at the same pasture with my mare and when she is grazing it doesnt have a same movement as beautys belly does...i will try everything to get him back to a good weight and get his teeth floated...i just love my horses!!!

I don't think you have as long as you think. I predict a month or so. From the back she seems large. The movements were pronounced and from a larger baby in there. Since her bag is starting to form, this says sooner than several months.
What kind of stallion was your beautiful chestnut mare exposed to?

My mare had no bag at her vet check when I took her in to be palpated. The vet said 3-4 months longer. The movements of the baby looked much the same as yours, and my mare was getting cranky, then didn't want the saddle tightened. It was not 3-4 months longer, she gave birth in ONE month. So, that is my prediction and I stickin' to it!

Come on gals, I stepped out on a limb, anyone else have an opinion?

You need to read this book. Your local library probably has it, mine did.

Melanie- my vote is she's bred too, but I'm not so certain that it's going to be a month before the foal arrives. I'm going to step up and say 8 weeks to foaling..lol ( just to give Jane a hard time ) :-) Ev

Hi Melanie, I agree. I also say she still has a couple of months to go. Kassie Finley on here has excellent photo and diarized journals of three of her mare's pregnancies up to their foaling. It is really useful too, as well as what Jane has given you. www.yellowhouseranch.com/foaling.htm

Any luck with the vet? How is your gelding doing with his neck?

Keep us posted Melanie.

Looking good Melanie. Keep her on a good high protein diet. You are doing a good job. I still think she will foal in about 2 months - but mares and especially maidens can fool everyone, so be prepared.

Hi Mel, Have just started the August 07 foalwatch posting. Jump on to it as you definatley look like you have foal on the way, according to the video. My mare is due sometime in August(we think). We didnt know she was in foal. I thought she had a massive cyst. How dumb is that. I had her scanned and bingo theres a foal in there. What a shock. Still, better than it being cyst eh. When you dont know when they were covered its difficult to predict anything. Just watch and wait. Oh and pull out your hair and bite off your nails. Debbie.
