So 1st I want to say this isn't my mini.. the lady I'm buying my Appy from rescued this mini from this other person.. the org owner kept her in a pasture with the full sized stallion and apparently the mini has had 2 other foals by that same stud... this just kind of made me sad... the lady that owns her now said the mare had just weaned her last foal shortly before she bought her and it looks to me that the foal she's prego with now is going to drop any day now.. so she'd have to been bred while her last foal was still suckling... it's just so sad that some people can be such an irresponsible breeder! I feel bad for this mini I know she has to be tired and worn out from the last foal and not getting any breaks before being bred again.
I guess this lady (the org owner) has been reported tons of times but nothing seems to ever happen. I told the lady that owns her now she needs to have a vet look at the mini at least to make sure everything is okay.. I've heard of minis dieing because the foals are to big for them and I'd feel really bad if anything bad happened to this mini it's the lady's little girls.
I didn't know what to tell her so I sent her a link about horse pregnancy and told her the vet should examine her is there anything else I could or should have told her?
