A Bay is a VERY likely outcome from a sorrel and black paint pairing. If neither parent is Homozygous for a paint patterned gene, then the foal could very well come out as a Solid baby but what I see and hear, she looks too big to only be 5 months along and it would mean she was bred in October and a breeding in October at all is fairly Rare(In Northern Hemisphere).

Lena is Gorgeous though! Can't wait to see her filled out with a healthy foal next to her! I hope it comes out looking half as gorgeous as momma and Daddy!

By the way, He's a Medicine Hat Overo.

and -nudge nudge- this was still in my Inbox from when you sent it to me a couple days ago

Whats her background? I'm guessing shes a sort of rescue
I got her today, the people before me rescued her from another man who was only selling her foals and not feeding her or the other mares that was with her

Your new mare could very likely be only five months along. Most older mares who have had many foals, look pregnant even when they are not, so it's no surprise she's big early on. OR she is further along, like you think. OR she has twins. Let's hope she really is five months along so that you can have 6 months to get her back up to nice healthy weight and condition. Good luck!

I wish I would have 6 months to fill her out but I'm thinking I don't. Though I guess we will see.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

BTW stallion is not a "medicine hat overo." He is just overo and frame overo at that.

I don't know how any one can tell much from those pictures as they are too dark to see much.....IF she is close to foaling I would be concerned that she will not have any colustrum as a result of her being nursed off....so I would have an alternate source on hand and would definitely test the milk at the time of foaling and then test the foal at the 12 to 18 hour mark to see what levels his antibodies are at.

If she is in poor weight I would start by adding some alfalfa to her diet......it is a good source of calcium for growing bones.

I will get more pictures in a little while. We had to put up fences today to protect her from my mare, evil witch. Now she is calming down with a gate between her and the mare and a new strong fence between her and the gelding. Last night I about had a heart attack, this girl broke through our paddock and was gone for two hours before we noticed. So we decided to put her with the gelding and mare for the night, they both chased her around for ten minutes before we got ahold of them. We were already planning to fix everything so they would be separated at night and until everyone calmed down with her, this is just a set back.

Your vet can do a palpation on her and tell you how far along she is. IF she is close to the end of her pregnancy they can feel the baby not to far in. It is just a good idea for you to know how far along she is and your vet can also tell you what to feed her. I hope that you have started her on a mare and foal feed. I personally would get timothy and orchard grass for her.
