I'm no expert, but IMO there's a chance she could be pregnant.

Ride more, worry less.

The only way to really find out before the due date is to get a vet out to do a palpation or ultrasound. Pictures only go so far. I've seen a few horses now (in real life) where I was convinced they were pregnant, but they ended up not once I got the vet out. Preg checks don't cost much, and should be done.

That's a good idea...I think that'd be good, so you can tell for sure.

Aww, I'm sorry missy45690 - I didn't mean it like that!

I was just throwing some possibilities out there - and since I've seen one that was thought to have been pregnant and wasn't, I just threw it out there.

You can also look for physical signs...if the baby kicks or something. We also had one who was heavy in foal...and hers was a kicker. Everytime that colt would kick, her eyes would bug out and she'd whinny.

She does look really big in the second picture

I think she "looks" prego...but as was already said...vet check!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
