Red face is my horse pregnant???

my horse that i got last october looks very pregnant....the previous owners said that she had broken out of her pin in sept. and was found backed up to a stud. they assured me that she wasnt pregnant, i shouldve had her checked then but didnt think anything of it. i have called a vet and she has an appt monday. but i just am curious to see if im just 'crazy' thinking this.... She would be 10 months going on 11.... I dont see any milk or wax building up but her belly is huge, she has a milk vein, her flanks move alot, shes getting to where she would rather me not touch her belly, and she has become very sluggish.... and when i stuck my ear to her belly towards the back i can hear a very faint heart beat that doesnt appear to match the mares.... Am i crazy???
this is pictures of her now

First of all, your pictures are not working.
Second, you can not hear the heartbeat of a foal, its almost impossible to even the most experience vets.
Third, kudos to you for calling the vet out.
Forth, welcome to the forum.

There is an image URL box when you click 'go advanced'.
It's yellow. Copy and paste the image's immediate URL.

If you are doing the pictures from facebook try this;


Facebook has a new way to display pictures. It opens a new window. Which is your enemy if you are trying to post pictures from there to forums and such.

You'll have to right click the picture that you want in the album view, where it displays the pictures together as thumbnails.

Once you've done that click open in new window.

It'll bring up the picture in the old facebook format without the new slide show view, or whatever it's called.

Once you have the picture in a new window right click it and click on proprieties. A little box will appear on your screen that says Element Properties.

You will want to copy the location link. It will look something like this.
http://a6.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/282057_ 10150250134676854_114605106853 _7986826_2356549_n.jpg

Just that part of it. Once you have that copied click the little mountain looking thing on the forum's reply box. It's by the globe and text options. It'll ask you for the web address. Make sure you highlight the hypp: part before you paste your link onto it or it won't work. Once you have the picture's link in the box click okay and your picture should appear like this:


Hope that helps and welcome to the forum.

She looks the same to me too, and doesn't look obviously pregnant. Good thing you're getting the vet out! Make sure that you get something conclusive - have her palpated or get a blood test. Some vets will just look at her and say yes or no, but it's impossible to tell by looking, so that's not good enough..

Ugh, yes do get something conclusive. My first vet did this with my old mare, I knew something was absolutely wrong with her, had another vet come out and it turned out she had a very bad uterine infection.

Also, horses can make themselves up to "look" pregnant. Another think, a horse that was once malnourished sometimes has a hardtime getting their intestines and such back on track which blows them up, persay.

Kudos for you to getting the vet out, but to me she just looks to be very well fed. Pretty much the same as when you took the first picture.

Looks like grass/hay belly. My mare looks like that. Consistent work can easily fix it.
I'm glad you're getting the vet out!
