    I am calling another vet on Monday. Because the vet I was using blew me off...
    So Monday we will have a date set up to see if this girly is pregnant or not.
    Here is a picture of her from today.
    It just looks weird to me how her stomach is like round and then angular...

    The vet came out yesterday to test her knee and she was like "Since you called a while ago and I couldn't test her we will test her here. So we had a scare once.

    first she thought she felt something so she was asking me questions like, "WHen did you get her" December. "How long was she with the stud?" atleast 2-3 years. And she told me that I have a colt that was made in the fall/winter, so she was like "The colt will be born in fall" (All you minnesota peopple know that most foals don't do well in Winter around here..)So she was like, well I have medicine in my truck to abort the foal. When she said that I was heartbroken, I know that it would be best for Demi and the foal, but it is almost like a person. I just didn't know what to do.
    But then I saw her get a look in her eye like, maybe that wasn't what I felt. And she tested her again and she found out that it was actually Demi's bladder that was in the way. She said that the bladder feels like a 2 month foal in the womb (I got the mare 2 months ago...) So thank goodness she retested her!

    The reason that she was confused is that she said the bladder has a bump on it that feels like a head or something on a 2 month old colt. But she said that the lining of the uterus just wasn't right to be in foal, so (Still having her hand in my poor horse's Rump) she was still feeling and changed her mind.

    I am a mixture of sad and happy at the same time.

    SO no Demi babies!

    Err....can you tell me where you heard that? I've heard of cases of colts breeding as young as 9 and 10 months old, but DAYS?? Did you mean MONTHS?

    Glad Demi's safe and sound an no baby - don't be sad, this is GOOD news!

    I actually called the people I got my son's pony Misty from yesterday, she's getting as big as a house (and just on pasture, no feed, no hay even) to make sure she had never been exposed to a stallion. I've had her since last Sept, and they had her for a year and a half before that and no chance that she was ever with a stallion, so yay!

    Haven't you played Farmtown Indy? Stallions wander onto people's farms and impregnate their mares all the time =P. I perversely wish for you to have another crazy pregnant mare so that I have company but wouldn't want to put poor Misty through that.
