    Foal
    Need Advice on a Recued mini

    Hello Everyone I am new on here so im not sure if this is even where to post this but I need advice on a Mini my mom and I have rescued. We got her last week from a cruelty case and she already has a colt on the ground but the previous owner said she was in foal again but of course has no other info....So I am just stumped I guess haha I breed my horses but I have all their information so I don't I've never had this problem and with it being a cruelty case I am probably just freaking out more than I should but any advice at all would be greatly appreciated. Also when we take her colt off of her they came in with a gelding so should I put them together and keep the mare apart from them? I have always had more than one foal at a time so we just put them together but with him being so little Im just scared something will get him


    Thanks again

    Well if there is a possibility she is in foal again you want to get a vet out ASAP to be sure of it and to see how far along she is. I am sure that a ton of other people are going to respond saying the same thing too.

    It really depends on the attitude of the gelding. If he is patient and not aggressive toward the foal then it should be alright. If they have already been together at some point without problems, then I'd say they are fine to be together. It might actually make weaning a bit easier as the foal will have a buddy.

    Yes he is very gentle the little one already follows him around :)
    I am pretty sure they were all pastured together where they came from so they are all get along well
