I have a picture of the head of the gelding in question. They have decent body structures, decent coloring, but their range in abilities are very great. My mare I use for drill team, barrels, ranch work, great trail horse, anything cow, poles, even done some english stuff. The 'gelding' 2D barrel racer,ex-roper/anything cow, great trail horse, very docile temperament. Very good and athletic horses. I do believe that it he baby could be sold if she were to be pregnant. But I would like to approach that after the pregnant or not question :). Male is also registered with beautiful bloodlines, exracer as well. Here is a picture of his head, what good it will do you I have no idea.

To be honest I don't know the extent of his showing only his cow horse years and he went state wide and even to a few next door state competitions and won money. He has won money for both barrels and anything cow. She has won me money even at such a young age. When I say docile I mean very docile. He is very attentive as well as she. He is very calm and listens extremely well, not an aggressive personality whatsoever in either of them. My mare has very much room to keep learning. I often ride her with not a single piece of tack on but a rope around her neck. She is very laidback, often comes to my whistle in a twenty acre pasture. There is plenty of room for weaning and separating between her and a foal so no worries in that department. If she is indeed pregnant and doesn't foal until December I have no worries in money. The reason I say my money is tight right now is because I just today, paid over $700 for farrier next week, board for two horses, feed and hay for the month for two horses. If she were to be pregnant and possibly foal I would take care of her. Money would not stop me from caring for her properly along with the foal. Though she will be my first mare to give birth I have worked with many breeding barns and needing to care for the foals afterwards I am very used to. I wouldn't terminate the pregnancy, not in a billion year because though it's unplanned it will be accepted. I am prepared to care for this foal. The prospect of one is nerve wracking but very very exciting.

And I don't find your questions or statements out of line. I appreciate the concern. You are asking questions and giving attention to the things and I couldn't ask for better advice for a possible baby.

Well, If she is pregnant than best of luck!

No one can change your mind on keeping or terminating. The only concern is, if she is pregnant and you decide to sell the foal, will it be registered or unregistered?

Though, definitely get her ultrasounded

Sadly unregistered but that didn't stop me from buying my mare to begin with so if worst case scenario I can't keep the foal we will fogure something out. I have many horse connections that would like an offspring from her. Despite her young age, she is very well rounded and talented and the makings for an amazing horse. And thank you.

Could be a phantom pregnancy? It happened with my lease mare. One day I went down to the pasture to find grey hairs all over her back and rump, she was in with a grey gelding. Then when the lease was up and I gave the mare back, I got a phone call a few months later asking if there had been any stallions grazing with her. I said no, but remembered seeing the grey hair on her back and wondering if she'd been bred. Apparently my mare was showing all signs of pregnancy, including an expanding belly, but there was no foal when she was ultrasounded.

This situation just brought it to mind. I'd definitely get her ultrasounded if you can, because that's the only way you'll know.

The detail about the stallion next door (with a single strand of hot wire that is usually off) wasn't part of the previous thread I read. Get her preg checked for sure and don't let her share a fence with the stallion. He is your first suspect if your mare is pregnant. Geldings can be aroused into breeding behavior by other males exhibiting breeding behavior. Mares are bred every year due to bad fencing and improper separation of mares and studs. Stallion owners are usually liable by law for accidental breedings, which is why most boarding facilities will not accept stallions because they would be liable if their fencing or facilities in general were insufficient to prevent accidental breedings.

It is extremely unlikely that a "gelding" could impregnate your mare.

You have 2 possibilities:

1 - The gelding is a normal gelding, couldn't impregnate anything, and just has enough hormones to still be able to perform the sexual act.

2 - The gelding wasn't gelded properly, or is cryptorchid; if you can't see or feel a testicle, than it's inside the body, at a very high temperature. Chances of it being fertile are very, very low.

Have a vet's visit, but I doubt that she is pregnant.
