I am going to guess she is too! From the side it could just be a questionable hay belly but from behind that definitely doesn't look like a hay belly! Lol By the way she's a pretty girl! What breed is that horse in the back ground is it a shire? I'm a sucker the draftiest!

See? We all guessed she looked preggers, just goes to show you, you need the vet check. Was kinda looking forward to the long eared baby though, but I can wait.

Just remember that mules act much more like their donkey parent than the horse, and tend to be very tricky to train if you aren't well versed with mules. You can't force one to do anything, and scaring it will only make it stiffen up and refuse to do anything. I'd invest in a trainer that knows mules well to help you out if you plan to do anything at all with the baby, and do some research on donkey behavior ;) we had a miniature mule filly this year and we were extremely surpised at how different she was from our other foals. Much different temperment. Cute as a button though, even if her whinny did sound like a pig's squeal






Whoops, my bad ;) should of read the updates before I answered. Good that she isn't pregnate though, makes things much less stressful for everyone!
