Got a cute rescue mare and her something month old filly...and she is maybe pregnant?

I got this little rescue pony mare yesterday. She is a who-knows-what breed :) And about 13.3-14 hands. And I got her filly. They were unsure of how old the filly was...maybe around 6 months? She hasn't been weaned yet so that will be starting soon They said the mare was possibly bred back on her foal heat because they had her in with a part arab stud. The little mare is only about four years (with no proof). She is SO skinny...she was on....straw! I got her wormed today. Makes me so sad that they are in this condition YES I am having my vet out to do ultrasound/age checks. BUT in the meantime I just couldn't wait for some opinions :) So do you think she is pregnant? Also just for fun what breed do you think she and her filly are? The little filly has only been caught a couple times in her life and is pretty wild. I did get a halter on her today finally Please polite opinions only please
I think named the mare Sheesha and the filly Zairrayah,but I am still open to name ideas as well!

Poor baby - she looks so tired. I'm sure you'll bring her up to snuff pretty quick - at least as quick as can be done, anyway.

I have no idea about her breed, arab cross, maybe. She looks like some of the welsh/qh crosses I've seen, too, though.

As for a name, one will come to you when the time is right. We generally don't name our animals, they either come with names, or they earn their names...

My dog and two of my cats earned their names. Names are **** Dog, Chaos, and Psyco Kitty.

I don't think I want my horses to earn their names. Lol.

I love the filly. She's adorable. The mare looks like she needs a vacation. Lol. Couldn't tell you about pregnancy. Sorry. When's the vet coming out? (:

I think once the foal is weaned, she will pick that weight right back up. I am no breeder but isn't 6 months a long time. Especially for a mare who obviously wasn't being fed enough. She's young, she will bounce back...and she's not terrible. She's thin...for sure...but not to the OMG! Level.

The filly sure is cute though. She looksl ike she is well built and has a very pretty face and color. She will come around too I am sure!

Good luck with them!

Also how soon after they foal do they come into their foal heat? That would give me an idea of how far along she is...if the filly IS six months....

They come into foal heat usually a week or two after foaling, so the mare could be close to 5 months now.

I am guessing the filly's sire is the half-arab stud the mare could have been bred to, and am guessing the mare is half arab too.

Your mare is thin, but not very. She could use a few groceries, but my mare was thinner than her when nursing, and within a month, she was rolly polly, and that was just on grass! No grain, or hay!

She'll bounce back after the filly's weaned, and I'm sure she'll make a nice little riding pony!
Good luck with them! They're gorgeous!
