Preggers?...or neglected and wormy?

Yup...I'm asking the dreaded question. And to clearly state **the vet is coming out, I'm not an idiot and I know that no one can definitely tell me if she is pregnant or not. I just want opinions, so no body jump down my throat please! The vet is coming out!!**

My thread about this horse can be seen in the Horse Talk section. Otherwise I don't know much about her. She was a short stirrup pony, the trailer she was in got hit by a drunk driver and she lost her eye, hasn't been ridden in a year...and now I have her. She needs some TLC and was wormy so she got a good dose of worker yesterday which may explain the big belly, or maybe she's just a tubby ;) lol. So tell me; what do you think she is? Very wormy? Or the big P word?

I tried to see if she's bagged up but she has so much hair it's impossible so I tried to feel around an she isn't too keen on me touching her lower belly/teets. She trys to kick. I did peel off some dirt and crustys off her one teet so they clearly haven't been cleaned in awhile. So she's going to need some work on that.

And to whoever I didn't get my point across to in the first sentence, I am having the vet out already asap.I would just like to hear people's opinions:)

Do you have any reason to believe that she was pastured or exposed to a stud?

The carelessness of this barn wouldn't make me doubt it. But she wasn't exposed to a stud that I know of. I asked if she was which I am awaiting a reply.

Well, my geldings belly looks like that right now. His is just a hay belly.

I'm going to guess her's is due to the worms and diet/lack of exercise, not because she's bred. Then again, you never know...

Well she's only been with me two days and I don't trust her enough to just go snoopin between her legs. Especially since she tried to cow kick me yesterday. She hates her lower belly/teet area touched. Then again she hasn't been actually handled constantly in about a year... That I know of.

She was a short sturrip horse and kicks out defensively? I'd watch her. To me, a kids horse is something that no longer cares what is done to it, lol. I've messed with horses that haven't been handled in a couple years and they were fine with being touched, not as fine with being ridden without attitude, lol. You never know though? She looks wormy to me with her coat like it is, but it is totally possible for her to be bred. Who knows? Can't wait to hear what the vet says.

We tried again today but with a broom handle and she didt try to really kick out but she wasn't too pleased with it. Lol yup I was told she was a short stirrup pony before her accident and I'm assuming her accident is over 2 years old because the barn we got her from she was at for 2 years and she came to them like that. So I'm not sure. She did alot better today do we shall see!
