hey guys! So this thread is concerning the filly I work with- Sour, and her unborn baby. Sour was unintentionally mounted this June after a storm blew down a fence and one of our stallions escaped and hopped into her pen. We know she was mounted because there were....remanents on the ground when we got out there the morning after the storm. It is now January and I am almost 100% sure that Sour is pregnate (due to a dropped belly, tight udder, and movement when I feel around.) That wouldn't be a terrible thing considering that both she and this stallion are purebred AMH horses, except for two very important things.
1) This stallion, who's name is Montigo- is Sour's sire, making the foal inbred.
2) Sour was mounted only two months after turning two, and will of barely turned three by the time her foal is born.
I want to know what you guys think the chance of her foal being a dwarf, deformed, or stillborn are. Sour is not my horse so I can't really provide 24 hour care, or vetinary service- so I'm really worried about her baby. She's so young. Also, what are the chances of Sour being hurt? Montigo is a very small horse, and luckily Sour is a fairly large miniature- but still. Could the baby damage her? Any information or ideas will help guys, I really know nothing about pregnancy or foals in miniatures.
One last thing. Sour is not a very...friendly horse. I want to prepare her for if a vet does have to intervene to save her and/or her foal. She doesnt pick up her feet, and only allows me to touch her all over. She won't let males anywhere near her. Any ideas to get her ready? (ie; make sure she's ok with her tail being wrapped, her rear end being pressed on, etc?)
