Is she pregnant? 4-5 months along

based on these pics does Chanti look pregnant? The only thing she is on is pasture and that's not very lush right now. She's hardly ever this big on summer pasture. The last time she came in heat was around the end of March and Sundance was trying to cover her but nobody saw a definite mount that was successful.

I know I'll probably get bashed for this but I don't care. I just want opinions on if people think she's pregnant, no "God you're a horrible person for letting her be bred" "Have you had a vet out yet?" etc etc. I don't wanna hear it.

At 4-5 months there is NO WAY in photos or in person to visually spot the difference between a baby belly and a grass/hay belly. Sorry.

How about a weefoal test? They are only $30.

Sorry but birth or a vet is the only way to know for sure if a mare is pregnant.

If you don't want to spend money on a vet, and you are positive its between 4-5 months along, I would really suggest a weefoal test for 120-300 days. They work wonders! Not to mention, if she is pregnant she needs a better based diet and vet care no matter how you feel about it.

I tested my mare with a weefoal test(because I have a horrid vet) and I got a strong positive, no more worrying.

Though, other thn a weefoal test, like already said, birth or a vet is the only way to tell. If you get a vet out, by some way, I suggest an Equine vet that knows what they are doing.

No one over the internet can answer that question for you. You don't want us to ask if you have called the vet, but unfortunately, that or the test is the only way to know for sure.

I would probably be keeping my fingers crossed for not bred. If she's 4-5 months old she'd be due around the January/February mark... not a great time for babies.


Challenge me, Dare me, or even defy me. But do NOT underestimate me...
For on the back of my horse nothing is impossible!

Well then why ask? Only a vet can tell you.

I also don't understand you not wanting to hear about having a vet out. At this stage in the game, a vet is one of two reliable ways of knowing if she is preg. Good luck

People with true credibility and integrity don't need to tell other people how great they are.

That is a extrememly good point. You need to know absolutely if she is pregnant or not, because frankly you need to be prepared for a winter baby.

If she isn't pregnant, she needs a serious diet or a hormone check.
