Haha, you do that too Faceman? I know when Lena's colt stopped rumbling around in there I constantly walked the pasture. Though, obviously didn't lose it to early.


With Lena, she was obviously pregnant, even at 5 months. When I first got her she looked to be as well, but that was due to worms and other issues. I guess it really depends on the mare. More seasoned broodmares probably show earlier then mares that are barren half the time and even more so to maiden mares.

I bought two mares at the same time a couple years ago, the one maiden mare abvously pregnant at 4 month, she was not huge or anything but there was definently a baby in there.
the other mare not a maiden mare didnt even look like there was even a chance she was pregnant. And he said only the one might be pregnant(he didnt even know for sure, the stud just stayed with the mares). Then all of a sudden we noticed her belly a little round and her udder a little larger, a month or two later she was huge and had a colt only about two months after we noticed her belly.
Some mares just are not as obviouse I guess.

I have the same thing. My maiden mare I could tell was pregnant easily at 5 months -- but my other mare whose had 4 foals already I was getting worried though she'd been ultrasounded twice in foal. She didn't start really showing until 9 months.... but now she's making up for lost time. In about two weeks I'll start the mare's foaling thread as they'll be approx 1 month out.

How old was your mare when she was bred?

She was a two year old and yes, I know now that you shouldn't breed a horse that young. I didn't know much about horses when I was 15.

I've never had a maiden Mare. This looks strange.

Yes, in fact, I had several comments that the foal came out looking like it was a month old. She had a lot of muscle. Risky, the mare, had her in about 10 minutes and was perfectly fine other than some stretch marks on her vulva from pushing out such a big baby! She did act a little colicy after, but I think it was because she actually cast herself in the stall and had a little bit of shock from that, then wasn't feeling too keen after giving birth, lol.

Here is a pic of mom and baby at about 6 hours old!!



And 6 days old:



And 11 days old:



And 4 1/2 weeks:(please excuse me!)



And 6 weeks:
