    Weanling
    There really is no input except to get her checked out by a vet since that is the only way to tell. Her belly does look bulging and that would be concerning enough for me. I don't think her teats look any different than normal but I'm no expert. Again I would be calling the vet out asap....

    Gabby, nobody can say for sure one way or the other. Period. Sorry. I've seen some geldings look pregnant, and I've personally seen a mare with a false pregnancy.
    You can search all the "is my mare pregnant????" threads on this forum and they're all the same: nobody can tell you. Get a vet out, it's in your and your mare's best interest.

    I do sympathize though, because it reallllly sucks when you don't know. It will be a HUGE relief when the vet can confirm things for you...at least it was for us!

    There are points during a pregnancy that it is impossible to accurately palpate, if the foal is carried low and forward, the vet would never feel it. Ultrasound is your best bet when you don't know how far along they could be.

    As far as color, your mare is a fleabitten grey. When such colored horses are in winter coats, their fleabites hide and the horse appears whiter. When they shed their winter fuzzies, their fleabitten color appears. Same thing happens with my sister's fleabitten grey mare ;)

    Yeah, remember the thread with the picture of the gelding and everyone was SURE *he* was pregnant!

    Heck, my trainer met up with me today and the first words outta her mouth were "OMG, I saw your horse yesterday and he looks PREGNANT!!". Guess somebody is going on a diet....

    Perhaps this will get you off the internet and on the phone to schedule the vet. You are aware that grey horses are at increased risk for cancer? Better get her checked.
