So if you bought her in the beginning of June she would be at least 9 months along. If so you should be able to feel a foal. The only way I would guess (without a vet) is to stand next to her for a while and feel for foal movement. Pretty hard to miss. Have you ever felt a pregnant cat, dog, or woman? All feels the same, hard knocks to the belly, rolling lumps, and undulations when they move their limbs. I'd also listen for gut sounds if you feel something to make sure it's a foal and not gas/hay/feed rolling around in there. I'm sure you know all this.
I would guess yes... looking at her teats only. I have a heavy mare in my pasture and she could pass for 11 months pregger but she's never been close to a stud and her teats are flat and wrinkly. Not so much on yours...
I'd call the nearest vet, who cares if it's the one you will use for ever. Just go for the cheapest one to check her out. Good Luck!
You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!! What do you mean what do I mean?
