It looks like she is to me, and if she was kept with a stallion there is a very good chance she is. Let us know what your vets says! She's a pretty little horse.

Very cute pics of a very pretty girl, what did the vet say when he saw her?
    08-27-2012, 02:23 PM
Thanks so much! She said we can do a blood test that is about $200 and not always 100% accurate so I am going to wait a bit and buy the wee-foal checker again! But she has definitely gained weight. Oh also forgot to add she is much older than we were told! Vet says she's about 7 years old coming 8. We also measured her, she is 34 inches and about 298 lbs.

To small to palpate then? Very frustrating. I have never seen a face marking like hers before
    08-27-2012, 02:33 PM
Yes one vet says to small... I would love to be able to have her ultra sounded... I use a couple different vets for different things so may call my other. Just don't know exactly what to do. I don't see any sense in doing the blood test if it could give a false negative/positive. Guess I will just have to continue to wait

Many Minis get hay bellies, if fed too much and not exercised enough. My daughter has one who looks very pregnant all the time. Just keep an eye on her bag and whether or not, her flesh looks as though it is falling away from each side of her tail root.

Just in case she is pregnant, make sure she is up to date on prefoaling shots. Have you seen any movement in her belly? If pregnant, I think you would have seen some by now. Make sure you don't allow her to eat any lawn type grass.

Keep us posted.

By the way, is she really a dun? In some pics she looks like a red roan.

I don't think she's dun either. I see no dorsal stripe. But I do see roaning. Or a sabino effect?

I honestly don't think she's pregnant...

She does have a faint dorsal stripe but many horses do whether they are dun or not. With her solid head and dark points, I'm still thinking roan.

What do you mean about the flesh? Also what exactly do you mean about lawn grass? Here is a better photo of her dorsal stripe... I was told she was dun could definitely be wrong. She was with a pinto shetland stallion for awhile.
