I think it would be worth having the vet out (would for a "well horse" check, anyway) just to be sure.

I had the vet out when I got her here but he never palpated her. I think I will get him out to check her again.

Ok, vet says he can come back out Thursday but isn't sure he can palpate her with the gash she has on her vulva and he doesn't have an ultrasound. Closest ultrasound is south of Nashville or two hours north in Kentucky. I might have to truck her there.

I had forgotten she was the one with the gash - that only adds, imo, to the importance of finding out for sure if she is expecting. What a lucky girl that she came to you, someone willing to do all she needs rather than staying where she was.

I had a mare who had a baby a couple years before I got her, and she had bigger teats than a lot of mares I've seen that haven't had babies before, and she did on and off secrete a clearish liquid when I would clean them. But not knowing her history, I'd definately get it checked out just to make sure. I've known of a few mares that have come in really emaciated, and sick, and have ended up being pregnant, and the babies came out perfectly healthy and normal, so don't worry too much about that if she is pregnant. Just focus on getting her healthy again. Let us know how it goes, and what the vet finds.

Vet seems to think she might be bred. He's going to palpate her again next week to be sure.

It is a possibility. I hope not for her sake but if she is, you will just kinda have to roll with the punches. One thing that I have noticed watching all those animal rescue shows is that usually, a pregnant mare will look worse with the same care as other horses because she is giving more of her nutrients and such to the foal than she is taking for herself. Many mares who are skinny/malnourished will have a healthy foal. Often, the foal runs into problems when it comes time to eat because the mare doesn't have enough/proper feed to produce good milk. Those are usually still in the bad environment though. Even if she is preggo, I am sure that she will be fine and produce a healthy beautiful foal. Especially since she is now with someone who will actually care for her.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

there are just so many stories like this. I'm so glad she has found a home with you and if she is pregnant I'm sure you will be able to give her the best care possible up until her foaling time.
