Can I tell if my horse was bred?
I just moved my horse to a new stable, and the field where she gets turned out is next to a field with at least 1 stallion. The lady who has the stallion was supposed to put up hot wire because her horses had torn the fence up pretty badly. She hasn't done that yet, so I had just been turning her out in the round pen.
Today, a guy that we're friends with that boards out there turned my horse out in the field that she's "assigned" to. The other horses broke through the fence and got in with her. Instead of bringing her in, he called me to see if he should bring her in or leave her out. I was asleep and didn't call him back until an hour later when I woke up. He didn't bring her in until an hour later.
I'm pretty sure there's 2 or 3 studs in the field, so I'm hoping they were too busy fighting with each other to get to her, but she is in heat, so she definitely would have let them if they tried.
Are there any signs I can look for today when I go out there to tell if she was bred? How soon can a vet tell if she is pregnant? How soon can they do an abortion if she is pregnant?
She's at least in her late teens, possibly even in her 20's, so I'm hoping that even if she did get bred that she's not pregnant... Wish me luck.
