I am trying to find out what the age was of the youngest reported filly pregnancy. Someone has told my friend in Texas that her 6 month old colt can impregnate her 6 month old filly. I say a colt that age is too young and a filly cannot be impregnated if she does not cycle. Can someone give me some information concerning this? Isn't it just common sense?
The generally accepted youngest age has always been considered to be 9 months (270 days), but I was recently made aware of a filly that got pregnant at 7 months, so I would not be too fast to rule out 6 months, although it would be an exception rather than the rule!
