I would be extremely leery about a horse even getting pregnant when she's only a year old and in such a state of severe emaciation. Of course it's possible, but it seems like a long shot that she's been able to carry it for this long. If she IS pregnant, prepare yourself because it's not likely the foal is going to be as healthy as everyone wants their foals to be.

Good job on her either way, let us know what the vet says!

Maca, thanks for your response, your above statement is teh reason I am worried about her. Her copcndition, once again I am not the one who bred or allowed her to breed, It looks like it just has ended up thsi way. I AM seeing movement today ALOT this afternoon in her flank area and right above on her tummy, almost like watching a human who is pregnant and the tummy rolls and bubbly appearance. I will know Tuesday for sure, and will update this post, I know this is not the ideal pregnancy or foal so to speak, but if she is, this is a gift from God and he knew what was to come before we saw any appearance and symptoms with Asha. I will joyfully accept this precious gift of life, no matter what the size. It's in God's hands, , just prayingfor her to have a safe delivery and both be healthy. I know tis means I will also have to rebuld ASHA back up if she is with foal. God bless everyone here

If you have seen movement and she is expelling milk, I would guess pregnant. Maybe a pic of her teeth would help. This forum is abundant with knowledge on horses in every aspect and someone will be able to help you out. With her having actual teets, I would guess that she has had a foal or two in her time. Rescue horses can be terrible to age because malnutrition and poor forage can wear teeth in an unnatural way. Good luck with the vet! She looks wonderful!

Thanks Corino, I will see if we can do that. She is getting very irritable about being touched on her sides period. LIke okay I won't touch you there, she will swing her head, nip and warn you no to do so. This beahvior just stared this week, She used to like to be scrathed and would lean her neck like a girraff. Now she is not wanting us to touch or groom there

This sounds so much like me and Isabelle, except she wasn't starved. But I didn't intentionally go out and buy a pregnant mare. I knew she could be, because she was with a stallion, but the vet actually checked her and said she wasn't pregnant right after I bought her. And then this spring she started getting bigger and bigger and low and behold, she was pregnant after all!

But I really feel like it was meant to be, because I have always wanted a foal and to train a horse from the ground up, but have never taken the plunge, so to speak. But like you, my first and foremost concern is for my mare. Hopefully baby will do well too, I certainly want him to! But right now my goal is for my mare to be healthy and get through the pregnancy okay. I didn't breed her, and I didn't intentionally buy a pregnant mare, but I am oh-so-excited to have the experience and feel like it was meant for me to have her. Maybe she needed rescuing (because otherwise she was going to an auction) and it was meant for her to come into my life. And hopefully God didn't bring me this far only to have everything fall apart. That is what I am hoping any praying anyway.

I do still worry a lot, about every little thing with her health. The other day she even rolled and got stuck upside down, because she rolled all the way over and then tried to get up on the uphill side but wasn't able to get her legs under herself. I had to get a rope and flip her back over. I hope she doesn't try that when I am not around. I wish she would have the baby already. Then I would feel like the hardest part (on the risk to the mares health) was behind us.

She definitely looks pregnant to me but only a vet can say for sure. Horses can have false pregnancies but I really don't think that is the case with your girl. You have done an incredible job getting her healthy again, she is looking amazing and so sweet. Just relax, the baby might end up being perfectly fine, you won't know until it is born but there is no reason to worry about something until you know what the baby is like. I would have the vet on call ready to come out if need be just in case though.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
