Here is an update on Isabelle, the Foxtrotter I bought last fall as my new trail horse. She just happened to come in foal (not my idea to breed her, so please don't fuss about that, but I do want to keep the foal). From my best guess, she is about 7 months along (based on the fact that I bought her at the end of October and when my vet checked her in the beginning of November he didn't think she was in foal). But I had him check her again about a month ago and she is definitely in foal now. As a matter of fact, the little guy was kicking up a storm today!
As for her udder, I took a picture because I thought it is unlike any mare's udder I have seen before. It occasionally drips clear to whitish "milk." She was nursing a foal when I bought her, and her udder really has never gone away. I bet she's had lots of foals.
Anyway, does she look about 7 months along to you guys? Or could she be farther and my vet just missed it when he checked her in November? The foal she had at her side, at the end of October, was about 3 months old according to the last owner (not my idea to wean that early, I will certainly let this foal nurse longer!).
Anyway, I just wanted to show off Izzy and see what you guys thought. I am still riding her at this point, but I am guessing at some point when she gets larger I will start feeling bad about riding her. But so far she is doing great.
