    Um she isn't mine.

    The horse was living off whatever she could find.
    She's lucky to get feed.

    Anyone who wants to complain about us giving her at least a slightly better chance might wanna click the back button.

    Foal
    She might not even be pregnant, one of the older broodmares up at my BO's place looked like she was 10 months along even though she wasn't with foal. She just has had a couple of huge babies and her gut refuses to tidy back up. At her age, I really hope it's just an old baby belly.

    I don't think anyone is bashing you for what you are doing just asking questions, older mares have a hard time foaling and maintaining weight after the foal is born, if you could get her some senior feed and beet pulp it would help her out alot. Watch for colic post foaling in the old girl, and good luck to you with this endeavor.

    She's always got a round belly but one time I went with her to check on them her belly was way smaller than it is now and we could tell she wasn't pregnant. (Or if she was she was definitely not far along.)

    But now it's big and usually sticks out more to one side.


    But yeah there's definitely the chance her belly has just done something weird,
    So I'll be watching her

    Has she been wormed at all? That' could also be causing a distended belly.

    I doubt it. I can get wormer when I go get feed next.

    If she isn't yours 'technically' why can't you ask her owner to pay for a vet check? It seems like that would be a good solution.

    How, exactly, is it that you are "helping" this horse by taking her into your care if you are not able to provide the care (vet) that she needs?
