Age Of Breeding
Okay so to start off, I am not planning on Breeding my filly.
I have a simple question...
I have been doing research, because of the fact when I got my filly, she was in with a stud colt the same age as her, I got her 5 months ago, and she was a long yearling, I am thinking she is now 2, or close to it. I have also been thinking a lot, because of other posts on here...
Anyways, what I read in multiple places, is that a filly can start cycling as young as 12-14 months old, and a stud colt, can start producing as young as that too.
My filly Breeze, whom I have had for 5 months, has gotten fat, but lost or grew into her weight, and is now keeping a consistant weight, although she has gained about 25-40 pounds in the last month. I know she is growing and I do believe that is normal. I do not believe she is pregnant. She is a little touchy under the belly when you rub her there, but I think nothing of it, and I just rub until she relaxes.
Also I do know the only way to tell if she is pregnant is to get a vet out.
My question is though What are the chances, in your opinion, that she could be pregnant.
I think she is a 0.000001% chance she is, but I will not know unless I get a vet out, which I am planning on doing in the spring, but not specifically for an ultrasound.
