I plan on getting her hooves and teeth done when I'm home and then hopefully will be able to get her vet checked soon as well. She did have a vet check and dewormer right after getting to the rescue.
What should I get done as far as vet goes? I am planning on, preg check, coggins, health, overall check up.
If she is bred, is there any supplements I should have her on? What minerals should I provide?
If she is bred she will be due sometime in October. Therein lies my other concerns.
What do I need as far as shelter for her and the foal? I was thinking a shed (don't have the money for a complete barn), and probably blanketing the foal, if not both.
Here are couple pictures that I found while looking online for horse shelters.
I like the looks of the first one a little better, because it would offer better protection from our winter weather. I think I could also stall off the enclosed area so you could lock a horse in there. What do you think? My dad has a sawmill and my brothers like to build stuff so I think I'll be able to save a bit of money if I get them to build it. I would help as much as I could, of course.
What size would be good? Maybe 14' wide and 24' long?
That would give a 12' by 14' stall.
I will post a picture of my mare and the two possible daddies.

And the best picture that I found of Splash (half paint half appy, he is the appy colored one), he is a half brother to Ruby

Thank you for any advice!
