    HELP!! Is she pregnant??

    Okay my grandpa bought this horse for me about four or so weeks ago from the sale barn. Within the last two weeks she has blown up. At first I thought it might be colic but never really saw any signs...i don't see how she could have gotten this big so fast is she was just putting on weight. I have never dealt with a preg horse so am out of my league here. My gramps says she isnt preg but I think that's just because he doesnt want her to be. If anyone could offer me some good advice to help double check if she's pregnant before I call out the vet. She breathes a lot heavier now as well. Her tits have not swollen or leaking any fluid....The first two pics are from the day I got her and the last two pics are from this last week....

    Hmm I would have a vet to look at her to be sure.

    I definitely see a difference.

    I would definitely have a vet check her. If nothing else, since she came from a sale barn.

    Wow she has definitely changed in size alot, I think consulting you'r local vet is a good shout. If she came from a sale barn and wasn't particularly well cared for and then went out to field with good grass and been fed etc she could just have a swollen grass belly, people are often suprised how quickly horses can gain weight in a good home. However from the pictures she does seem a good but bigger so like I said I would consult your vet.

    Having the vet out to check her out is the best idea. It is impossible for strangers over the internet to even guess if she is or is not pregnant.

    Shall we make it a quorum? I agree that the only way to know for certain is to call out the vet.

    When we got her we kept her in the arena eating really good hay could this have caused it???? I don't understand why she is breathing harder now though....my gramps wont let me call the vet because he says she just has a cold.....she is coughing and has a slight runny nose

    Can not guess really. A vet is really your only option.


    And yes, good hay can fatten a horse up.

    When was she last dewormed? She could have a hay belly, or she could be wormy.

    Another reason to have the vet out. You have no history of her health records. Probably needs her shots updated.
