| || | My Shetland Mare was accidentally bred by an AQHA stallion?
I did not know that my Shetland was Prego until about 1 month ago when she started to bag up. Everyone kept saying that she looked prego but Sugar has always been on the pudgy side, so I did not pay it any mind. Plus we had just put them back out on pasture about a month prior, which is when the weight gain started. I have a AQHA Gelding(recently gelded) that I know is the only candidate for the father. Her now 2 year old son is still in tact but is not interested in girls yet nor was he anywhere near being ready a year ago. So my question is do I have anything to worry about being that my pony is about 12.4...maybe smaller and the sire is about 15.2. We live in a small town in GA and have vets but they are not terribly concerned about what I am asking..My vets answer to will she have problems was " we will have to wait and see". That is not very comforting! She has had one baby to my knowledge, maybe more but only one with me. No complications with 1st..had him on her own outside in the pasture at about 8 AM. When she was prego with Moon(1st) she was HUGE. She is about that same size now..maybe a touch smaller. I do not know when she id due as this was not a planned thing obviously. Should I be worried that she has had milk for a full month now? No change in milk color, has been clearish white the whole time.
