Exclamation Is horse pregnant (PLEASE read and reply ASAP)

Ok, so Crystal (my sister Ireland, angelsgrace kind of owns her) she's 7 years old and showing signs of pregnancy after 5 months...5 months ago we went to a horse camp with her and Angel and Gerrie, there was a stallion there that had already sired 3 foals, he had escaped from his stall then and mabye have covered our beautiful mare, Crystal...he was a Quarter Horse Stallion, 5 months later (now) she is showing signs, like grumpiness, Large stomach, The pregnancy vein around her stomach, her milk breasts are very swollen, she is not de-sexed, and I have not seen her spray since then.
She was also on heat (spraying) then (5 months ago)
Need anymore information on what happened?
PLEASE ANSWER ASAP!!!!!


Thank the gods that we have horses

Get a vet to have a look, it sounds like it though.

Horses have a gestation of 11 months, give or take. Sometimes more, sometimes less(not months less), but if it has only been five months, then it is very unlikely that the stallion at camp covered her. If she is pregnant, and only been back from camp 5 months, then she was not covered by the camp stallion, but by another before then.

Get her checked by a vet.

the only way to be sure is to have her palpated. A 5 month pregnancy would be easy for the vet to detect without ultrasound so it shouldn't be very expensive. But you should have her checked because you do need to know for sure. If it isn't pregnancy, something else could be causing these changes which you also need to find out about.

The problem is...my father doesn't know about her being possibly pregnant, and therefore we can't take her to the vet...and If i tell my dad, it will NOT go down well and he wont believe me anyway

you know what REALLY won't go down well? Him finding out about it when she foals out and then finding out that the two of you knew about it all along. Trust me, you're going to have to bite the bullet on this one and fess up. Save yourself a real hiding later on and tell him now.

mares in foal need special recautions, you can give certain foods (fescue grass) certain dewormers ect. It would be VERY irresposible not to tell your father. She could have complications, she could die, so its in your best interest to call the vet and talk to you father.

"Dad, I have been reading, and I was wondering if you thought Crystal might be pregnant? She is showing these signs that I read about, and there was this stallion at camp that she might have been in contact with, and I just want you to check her out to see if we should call a vet. I am very worried about her, because I have been reading all these terrible things that could happen to pregnant mares. Please daddy, come look at her. I love her so much, I don't want something to be wrong with her."

I don't know about you, but "daddy" works on my dad.

Unless your mare is really for sure pregnant, I must say there isn't really much point in posting everything we know about equine reproduction. All there is to know cannot be covered here. I suggest you start reading through the threads on this breeding section.
