I was boarding my stallion at a farm I was training at last year. We didn't bring him in until late October and he was seperated off from them by 5 strand wire, 3 strand electric. At one point the owners gelding took down a fence going after my stallion. The herds were mixed for no more than 4 hrs (though I know that's ample time) and upon me finding them my stallion was still in his pasture and the mares in theirs.
Fast forward a few months: mare is sold to new owners and I picked up a lease on their gelding at the same time so we are on great terms and keep in contact even though I'm no longer leasing him.
Up to now:
Mare is suddenly very large and seems to be gaining weight only on her tummy area... we're definetly thinking she's pregnant. The owner is super excited if she is and is calling the vet tomorrow to schedule to find out for certain.
In the mean time, what do you guys think? Fat or preggers???
PS: My vote is preggers
