Already posted this but am reposting with more information and even pictures.In October of 2013 I moved barns. I have a four year old mare that wasn't enduring heats before due to under weight (I have only had her for about a year) but started going into heat every one to two months and it will last about a week or two in duration when we moved. She wasnt introduced into the pasture until approximately end of November 2013 early December 2013. She is quite the flirt. She was recently going out to pasture with a quarter horse 'gelding', he has been caught mounting and hooking up with my mare. So now she doesn't go out to pasture with him anymore but her heats have stopped in the last two months. Is there such thing as 'spring fever' for horses? Is there anyway to tell other than getting her palpated if she is pregnant or he is a stud after all. He is an OTQH said never to have bred. But I have been informed that there is a chance that a ball never dropped and in some cases can drop even at 12 years old. Any advice is welcomed. (Take under consideration it isn't my intention to inpregnate my mare currently yes there are future plans but that is years into the future) the gelding doesn't belong to me and we are planning to take her to the vet but again keeping it on the down low because I will do everything in my power to avoid any sort of barn drama. Here are two pictures of her yesterday (August 1), her teats are slightly elongate and enlarge (she isn't fatty whatsoever). I can get a teat shot but that's probably if asked. She hasn't ever been bred. Also I should mention that there is a Paintaloosa (he is sp ugly he is cute) next door. But they are separated by a fence which is also wired with hotwire, so unlikely but not impossible. Thanks for all the help! Please try to be patient with me didn't plan for any sort of breeding and kinda tight on money.
