I was wondering that as well - what breed is she? If she's at least average size, 300 pounds as a yearling is very very very small.

I thought it sounded small. I didnt really have any idea how much a yearling should weigh. But since a 2 yr old TB is like 900 lbs or something, 300 is tiny for a yearling horse.

I've never known an early yearling to settle personally I wouldn't be concerned she is. Depending on breed and type 300 lbs isn't unheard of for a weight on anb early yearling. I have some cutting bred yearling fillies here that only weight 400 right now the geldings and colts are bigger but none that will hit 600 yet.

We picked this filly up at a sale two weeks ago, she will never be 13 hh. The first thing I did when we removed her from the stud pen was lift her tail and check for any signs of penetration, everything looked normal.

It is worth getting the vet out to vet check her and terminate a pregnancy right away rather than waiting to see if she settled or not - then you're putting her in a position where she might have to carrto to term, which I don't think is terribly fair for such a young filly.
It sounds like you are on the right track, panderse, please do what's best for your little girl :)

I think you should give her the needle regardless. Also watch her VERY carefully, I once bought a filly (yearling) that had been mounted by a stallion. After only a couple of weeks of owning her I had to put her down because the stallion had damanged all the nerves and muscles in her back. And I'm not totally sure, but I'm pretty sure that stallion the bred her was just a younge two year old, imagine what a full size stallion could do to a pony filly?

Agreed with everyone else here :>

From my personal experience, I don't think that the filly would be pregnant (though it is possible, but i've never known a horse in my travels to get preggie as a yearling) but at the same time ANYTHING can happen with horses.

I would get the foal aborted for the sole fact that she will not grow correctly. Think of it this way... Would you ride a 300 pound 13 hh yearling? Well, that yearling will be carrying the weight of a foal around 24/7, so it will be as if she had a rider on her for about 8 months (I would say 12/11, but i'm factoring for the baby to grow inside, obviously it isnt as heavy as a rider the day its concieved).

And as everyone else said, chances are you'll lose both. If you don't lose the mother during child birth, her knees and joints and insides will be so royally messed up that the humane thing to do would be put her down.

It sounds to me that she got into a TERRITORIAL stallions pen, and got the crap beaten out of her. Joey is really territorial, and every time we introduce a new horse to him he beats the crap out of them, even if they don't run. So i think that Mr. Stud created a hole in his fence, and the baby passed through not knowing that he didnt want company.

Personally, I will never, ever, ever keep a stallion in a neighboring pasture to some mares unless i want babies and fence renovation, lol! (I'm saying this based on a 4 - 5 ft high Equine fence). If nature calls, he will answer it, even if it means jumping a fence.

Hope your filly turns out to be ok

i agree with everyone else. at least have the vet come out or take the filly to the vet but its prolly gonna be cheaper taking the filly to them.

like what skippy said maybe the stallion just attacked her. i had a stallion and my neighbor wanted to breed their mare to him. he started by mounting her and everything seemed fine. when i woke the next morning the mare was in another field with cuts everywhere. sometimes a stud will only accept who he wants to accept.

one time in an attempt for my stud to get out he jumped on top of a standard panel gate and flattened it even know their was electric wire. so stud will do anything for the ones he does like. lol. i eventually gelded him then sold him

Strength lies within the heart
but the strengh to trust lies between the horse and his rider!!!
