She is definitely overweight look at that neck, she may be pregnant, but she definitely needs vet regardless, the pregnancy will be very tough on her because she's so overweight, you may even have more complications.

Pregnant or not she is really, really fat.

I agree with Bubba, she needs a diet.

Yes yes yes. I second this. You don't need to get strips you need to call a vet. Now.

Interesting to see the posts suggesting you do the responsible thing and call the vet are being ignored. Not to mention the ones telling you that your mare is incredibly overweight and you need to do something about that.

Hi I was not ignoring the post I am was trying to schedule an appointment with my vet to have her check out to see what I should do with her. I am stumped with her cause she has gotten fat before but she is so much fuller in the flanks well I guess the vet will tell me I hope there is nothing wrong with her she is my baby. I guess I'm kinda scared to find out

She is definitely overweight, and that needs to be addressed as badly as anything. Being overweight has serious health risks as some posters have said already. Please get your vet out and discuss a plan to help her get to a healthy weight in the healthiest way possible for her. The vet can also do a preg check, but in my personal opinion, I think she just looks fat, not preggo. Impossible to tell from a photo, though.

Ok the vet is should be calling me in the morning to find out if I can have her checked in the morning. I took a pic under her belly and it looks lope sided what do you all think? I also cut her food back a hair so see don't put on to much extra fat but not a lot that it will affect the baby if there is one thanks

Do you want her to be pregnant? Has she been with any stallions lately? Do you own any stallions that may have gotten to her?

The people next to put a stallion in the pasture next to her and there was only an old woven wire I figure out that if something did happen that she could any time after late jun. And I know she was in there for at lest 2 mo. She is acting strange she dose not like the other horses now. I have a 2 1/2 and 1 year old mini studs that we have not cute yet cause we are waiting for the one year old to drop so we can do them both. I was to put him next to her to see if she comes in heat and all she wants to do is try to kill him. Last night she just kept putting her ears back at anything that moved and she also tried to bit me cause I put my hand on her belly and I do that every night. This is unlike her. P.s. This was not planed
