    Exclamation Possibly still in foal....? help please!

    Hi, one of our old shetland mares (22 this year) misscarried a foal few months ago, was weird like foetus but was like a toy pony. Anyway she seems to be getting bigger in her belly and has milk but not a huge udder....doesnt really eat alot of hay and goes out every night and in during the day and only on a small amount of hard feed....

    Is it possibly for a pony to be pregnant with twins, abort and deliver one and still have one inside?! I personally didnt think so but the ever growing belly and milk are pregnancy give away's! I didnt personally put her in with the stallion someone else did. She last foaled in April 08, she's not been running with the stallion for a while now.

    Any help would be great! Cheeeers!

    If you are worried, call the vet. That would be your best chance of making sure your pony is safe.

    Agreed, and it would be a miracle for you to have twins. Good luck. I would personally call the vet ASAP

    It is possible but very unlikely. I do have a friend whose mini aborted one fetus last year and went on to deliver a live foal later. But in all my years that's the only one I know of.

    Some mares especially older mares have milk all year round even if they don't have a foal by their side
