Rescued horse appearing VERY pregnant
We rescued a horse last month. At the time she was being abused and was about 100-200lbs underweight. She is slowly putting on weight and starting to trust. A few days ago she started to act weird and copped an attitude with us. While talking about her behavior, several of us were looking over at her in her turn out and definitely saw something move in her stomach. After several people touching her, we all came to the conclusion that she is very pregnant. Today her bags had a wax cover on them. We already had a scheduled vet visit for tomorrow as we have 7 horses getting their teeth floated (guess not her!), so will have the vet check her and test her milk to see how much longer she has. Problem is, she is inside in a stall in a VERY large western pleasure barn with lots of activity and 12x12 stalls. I have taken 3 with her and my other two horses(she is actually a friend of mine's), so we cannot expand her stall without putting one of my other two outside and they are both neurotic(mostly my NSH) and one is an escape artist(my mustang), so not an option. I have told my friend to move her to her place but she is afraid of moving her because she is apparently very close to foaling. Is a 12x12 stall ample enough for a good sized quarter horse to foal in? Can we still move her? She has been through so much in her pregnancy, we want to make this a relaxed experience for her. At least we put her on vitamins as soon as we got her, but there is also a concern over the foal's health due to malnutrition.
