This is Beauty she is a rescue that I saved about 2 years ago. She is just a pasture pet and gets turned out with my broodmares and then babysitts the foals at weaning time. Well I am now looking at her and wonding if she is just fat with a hay belly or if is bred by one of the colts from last year. The one that I think might have been able to do the deed was foaled on 3/31/07 and she was turned out with him threw the summer and winter he was just gelded last month. He is a big TB Han cross.

She definitely does look suspicious, like Bonny says... Of course I'm not an expert on pregnant mares, but my mare is about due... Does it look like she has a bag or anything??

When was the last time she was wormed? I don't think a baby colt, less than one year old could really "do the deed". I mean he would have had to have been sexually mature at about 6 months of age if she is showing now.

Sure something else wasn't in the pasture? I would also check the worming schedule. Do a preg test and/or call the vet.

She is up to date on worming so I know that that isnt the problem. I am waiting for my vet to return from FL to come check her and do her spring shots. I know that we didnt have any other boys for her to be bred by and didnt think he had an interest yet but she sure is getting rounder. We have a nother mare that is due in late august that is no where near as round as this mare but I know that they all carry differently.

A less than a year old colt bred my mare before I got her--that is how Lilly got here!! Old owners had no idea she was bred and when I asked(cause she looked bred) they said no way she has only been in with a baby colt

Well looks like she is in foal! She is bagging up and her hind end is starting to soften. Vet will be out later this week to look at her again. We are now all taking bets on when she will foal. I cant believe she was bred by a nursing foal.....

Amanda, what did the Vet do to figure out she was in foal? Ultrasound, palpate?
