If she isn't, she really needs to go on a diet! LOL!! Was she bred? A friend of mine had an 18mo old stallion and 3 yr old mare out together, and thought they were too young for anything to happen... Well, the mare is a Perch/welsh cross, so a pretty heavy pony to begin with, but her belly got bigger and bigger and bigger... so they put her on a really harsh diet. Then she stopped jumping for the lesson kids. Then one day, one of the riding students noticed her udder was really swollen. They finally stopped riding her then. Dayton was born 2 weeks later. My friend felt so bad for the poor girl. She ended up having another foal by the same stallion (he was a small warmblood), and the filly is 3 YO and 13.2H. We're hoping she stays pony... and thinking of breeding both mares to Alvesta Picasso - Producing Works of Art! Welsh Pony Hunter Stallion. He's so cute!

Oh, yeah. Something's up. I would suggest getting a fecal test done for worms and go from there.

Is this sarcasm? LOL

No not sarcasm,

She IS 100% definitely in foal, I thought that from the shape of her everyone would jump on her being in foal, being as she is so huge

The only question is actually WHEN she will foal.

She was bought safely confirmed in foal for an April foal, but was then standing to my own stud later in the summer. I hauled her in and her another ultra sound, and she was still in foal, but was deemed to be holding to Alto, rather than her earlier breeding, thus making her due in July.

I'm thinking that her progression from this, taken exactly 4 weeks ago, to the pic above taken yesterday

Means that she is going to foal in April
