Hello, I have yet another guessing game for you all. I have a 12.3 connemara/ appy cross pony. I have had her for six months, and when she first came she was very thin. We have been trying to put weight on her, and have been sucessful, but I have noticed lately that she is gaining weight oddly, getting fat looking in her belly, and still a bit thin along her spine. Today I noticed that she has sweling in front of her udder, one side being large than the other. She has had a foal before, so has large teats, but when comparing her to our other former mother, her udder is very different. The other mare does not have swelling in front like the mare in question, and the swelling is new.

I would like to get your oppinion before calling the vet, as we have had to have him out several times this year already, and do not want to sepnd the money to confrim a grass belly unless there is a real posibility that she is prgnant.

If she is, I haven't any idea how far along she is, as the person we got her from had only had her a short time and didn't know anything about her history, but she would be at least 6+ months. Sorry this is so long, hope you can help me!

I will try to add a link to pics. Those entiled "Sparrow" are the ones of her. You can click on the photos to make them larger (they are much easier to see that way)http://s35.photobucket.com/albums/d169/CAEventer08/

Thanks!!!

Well to me it looks like you have done a super job with putting the weight back on this mare, she looks great. After looking at her teats I would say she is probably not in foal as the swelling, which is more lightly to be fat deposits, is well infront of the bag itself. She does not have any filling of the bag. You did not say if this mare is in any kind of work or if you have seen her in heat at any point in the six months you have owned her. I would hold off calling the vet, unless the bag itself starts to fill.

Hope thats been some help to you.

Thanks for your oppinion. She has been in moderate work, and I had not seen her in heat, however, I believe she has just come in, so you are probably right. I'll keep watching her, but I doubt there is a baby in there. Oh well, would have been nice!

Thanks again.
