Pregnant?!? Need a vet to check?

Just for the entertainment with of all of the many who have and will think that there may or may not be pregnant.

I give you two mares from last spring, both had been bred AI within a week of each other. Both were bagging up and started to produce milk. Only one was actually pregnant! Can you guess which one?

^^and yes, she was over due for a farrier at the time of the picture

These pictures were taken a mere 20 days before a beautiful black filly was born. Do you think you could tell from just some pictures? Or would common sense say, yep, let's call the equine vet and have real expert advise?

Anyways, this is just for fun. Enjoy

Yep, pictures and an answer are always needed

Or I could really add to confusion and post a kinda blurry camera phone picture (poor light at dawn) of both mares cleaning off the new filly while the herd matriarch greeted the new comer by sniffing noses

The filly has a strip down her face and four perfect little socks, she shedded out into her black coat before her winter fuzzies came in. Camera phone can only do so much in low light, but this is a cute moment of three mares who would chase other horses away from their baby. Yep, a mare that used to be part of the herd was brought back after being gone for a few months, and the mares chased her continually away from the month old filly. Never any problems with people "attacking" the filly... but that other mare, well, she wasn't allowed within 50 yards of the baby. The chase was always led by the 23 year old matriarch on the left of the picture It's not like the mare was trying to threaten the filly, but the three baby mommas sure weren't going to let her anywhere near their filly

Can you guess which mare cleaning off the filly is the REAL mommy?

^patch on her neck is from the vet giving her an IV to boost her colostrum (got a shave), and it had grown in as a soft black velvet square to contrast her baby coat
