Could my recently bought filly be bred?

I recently bought my first full sized horse a couple months ago. Today I was out brushing her and noticed something poking out her side so I put my hand over the bump and I could feel some thing hard. I held my hand in place and felt the whatever it was slip away and then there was nothing. A few moment later the same thing happened again. I looked and she has no bag at all. She is only 2 so I am hoping she is not bred. I'm wondering if this could have been some thing such as gas? Or does it sound like I have a bred filly????

A vet palpation or ultrasound is your best resource ;)

If she's female-anything's possible! It would not be the first time this has happened to a new owner.

If she has been exposed to a stallion, then yes it's a possibility. But, your best bet is to have a vet look at her, that way if she is, you can get her the vaccines she needs and start feeding her like a pregnant mare. If she's not, then he can likely tell you what the lump was and ease your mind.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:
