I have a donk that I got in Oct. Who was supposedly 8 months preggo. It is now March and her 12th month according to what her previous owner told me when I got her, which would mean that she is about at the end of her pregnancy. Problem is, she has not bagged up at all, which I have heard isn't completely uncommon, and a friend of ours does not believe that she is pregnant. He isn't very familiar with donkey's, but raises beef cattle. I trust his opinion, but I am not sure that she was never pregnant. She has gained a lot of weight since I got her, and one day she looked skinnier then she had for the last couple of weeks, and then several hours later was round again and her hips became more prominent. That was at the end of last month and I believed that that was the foal moving into position, but her it is almost 4 weeks later and there has been no other movement. He pressed on her belly a little bit today, but felt no movement. She has a pear shape to her when you look at her from behind and her rump muscles are now mushy compared to them being hard 2 weeks ago. She isn't huge like many pictures of pregnant mares and jennies I've seen, but she does have a bulging belly, that like I said gives her a pear shape when looking at her from behind. Her attitude has changed and she is more irritable and aggressive to my mule then when I first got her. Can somebody please help me out here:) I am pretty sure that she was preggo, but should I be worried that she isn't as large as other donkeys at this point, we can't feel any movement, and that she hasn't bagged up?
