18 Months and Pregnant

I seen this ad on craigslist and it says the one filly is 18 months and pregnant.
I just wondered if you thought she would make it through having a baby. I was upset when i seen that. Whats you guys opinions?

Definitely too young. Gosh, and that guy looks so intelligent, too--wonder how it happened? =/
If there's nothing else wrong with the bunch, it could be a good buy, since they'll all so young, and you'd be working with blank slates.
Everyone who sells a horse here should see this ad. The poor condition of the..."stable"...says it all! Even I take some time to clean the cobwebs and dust in the Fall/Winter, and my horses live in my back yard!!

18 months is too young but it should be fine if they find a loving home that will give them the nutrition it needs and watch her carefully when it comes to foaling, fingers crossed the three/four of them find a loving home. I know of a lot of people who have put there mares in foal at 2 yes it is too young but all I have known off have foal problem free.

Never judge a book by their cover, also never judge a pony by their height. They tend to be big personalities in little packages.

It's possible she never caught. It doesn't seem like this is the type of situation that would have a vet out to do a palpation to confirm pregnancy....

How would they know she was pregnant? Now I k ow there are exceptions but I have not noticed any of our fillies coming into heat before 18 months at the earliest. Most after 20-22. It just might be a ploy t dupe someone into buying the horses thinking they are getting 4 instead of 3.
I hope this is the case. If not good nutrition should insure a healthy foal and future health of the filly. Shalom
