My dad took my truck so I couldn't take May up for her pregnancy check. We tried to get it re-scheduled because she couldn't make it. SO, we have it scheduled around noon on Monday.....Great! She was last bred on April 8th, Sunday. Today I believe makes it Day 17. She will be 3 weeks if she's preggers.
Well, Mom and I thought maybe it was God sent. That we were suppost to go today for some odd reason. Just a good thought I think.
Tonight I developed the idea that maybe since this is the time she has been coming back into heat, we could see what she did with Bentley teasing her. Odd enough we get him out of his stallion and let him graze for like five minutes. Then lead him up to the fence where neither of them could get hurt if my gelding decided to challenge. The result ended up being she kept talking right at him, but her tail wasn't too the side or up unless she was walking. She never pinned her ears, or bothered to kick out in any way. So far that meant nothing right? Bentley starts talking loudly like he's ready to breed, even walked like he was ready to service. Since some random guy decided to come over, we had to back him off.....didn't want to put the guy in danger so we let him graze while keeping an eye on her and him. He was grazing and eyeing her, no longer talking to her. My gelding just sat back and stayed happy. After the guy left, we didn't think anything was going on. But, she still continued to talk to him even after I got in the pen to hold my gelding. Where I lead my gelding she went with him. When my stallion called, she started to answer, but she decided to walk away and hid behind my gelding. We were thinking, "What was that?" We didn't get our hopes up for answers. We kind of felt like she was half avoiding him. She kept her ears up the whole time watching Bentley. Needless to say Bentley was waiting for something I believed, if anything else. I actually got to pet her without the odds of her running away. I'd never believe it if I didn't see it. She typically runs off, but instead she takes interest in my lead rope that I have on my gelding.
Doesn't anyone think that if she is pregnant that by me teasing her she will abort her baby? She has sort of been hanging around with the boys over at the other pen.... I thought I would ask concidering that has been a question I just wonder about.....I did this as well because she is a silent heat mare. She's been doing this all year. And I thought that if I teased her, it would give me an answer. It's unprofessional yes, but all my vet does is chalk it up as bring her in and wont say anything else on his opinion....I don't know what else to do. I've not had a silent mare and she's never done this to me either around breeding season. Mom says that they will be seeing each other very soon.......I'm holding thy tongue till I see something or an ultrasound....
