    But when in March? If that is when she was bred, she could foal anytime this month, even at the end of March/beginning of April if she was covered at the end of March 2012

    Sunny that's 12 months. Typical gestation for a horse is about 11 months or 340 days.

    Foal
    Is she a maiden? They tend to go "over".

    Foal
    I think she's a maiden. (She was a rescue and is 6 so I'm not too sure about her past) I don't know exact dates as to when she was bred just that it was thought to be March. Hard telling now. I bought her in August but started talking to the girl I bought her from in June. When I first started talking to her she said she thought she may be bred but wasn't 100% sure. When I took her to the vet in October he just said she was bred and when I said the previous owner suspects a February baby the vet said yep sounds about right. Sooo I'm thinking he wasn't much help.
    Well this makes this a bit more confusing.

    Foal
    On a side note what are the chances she'll throw a spotted foal? I don't know much on genetics and I know appys can throw solids too so I am curious.

    If the mare's last cover date was March 30, 2012, the 340 day mark was March 4, 2013 and there are plenty of mares that go well past that. Many go 350-365 days. But if the mare stayed in with the stud for several months, it may have been sometime in April or even May when the mare conceived.

    You would have to color test both the mare and stallion to get a better idea of what you could get. When it comes to spots, there is no way to know how much is even going to be on a baby if they inherited the gene.

    Foal
    I see. Thank you for your input. I'm hoping for some spots. Not knowing anything about her parents makes it tough.
