My little section A mare has been changing a bit. Every year she looks pg, but previously there's not been a chance she was. I recently noticed her bag "relaxing" and wondered, hmmmm. So I called the pet sitters and yes, they got my stallion and mare mixed up and could possibly be bred the week of May 5th. So I called the vet out yesterday to take blood (vets won't palp small ponies here) and I'll have the results either this Friday or next. So in the mean time, here are some pictures from 3 weeks ago and the second set is from Sunday. Vet says it's too early for her to be bagging. I noticed her "relaxing" but not filling at 9 weeks to go, so isn't that early?
Andrea, It could definitely be a possibility. The next 6 weeks you will really see a change as far as size and shape. She does look in foal however, so I will place my bet as "yes". Looks like you'll get an April baby in my opinion...
Just felt something kick, so that kinda seals it! We should be seeing the cutest foal ever around the 15th of April!
