The stallion's owner hasn't hinted towards anything like that. In fact, she mentioned she might be interested in purchasing it if I didn't want to keep it.
Considering the circumstances, everyone (the stallions owner and I) has been very polite about the whole thing.

But you never know... If that baby comes out with wings or one horn, I bet she'd want it back.
In my opinion, the previous owner probably feels like a doof for not knowing! If she doesn't, she should! Especially if she didn't even have her checked afterwards. How do babies get made? What made her think that she wasn't bred? Did she show signs of heat? Then again, would a vet check have caught it at the time of purchase?

I don't know. But I'm glad it seems to be working out.

Just FYI there is a way to subscribe to threads without having to post... right at the top of the thread is a little drop down menu called "Thread Tools" Click on that and then click "Subscribe to this Thread" Easy and you don't have to post "sub" or "subscribing" all the time!

Update: Her bag is growing! She may end up foaling at the end of this month, sooner than I thought. Here are some pics I took today.

-I'm going to go ahead and apologize to subscribers hoping to see a baby pic... soon enough!!!-

Big mare is BIG.

LMAO. You JUST found out she was bred? She's HUGE. That'd be one heck of a grass belly. She's super cute.

Bad news

Here it goes...

To my surprise (and everyone else helping me with the situation,) LuLu foaled last night. We found the little filly this morning... and she didn't make it. She never even made it out of the sac. :'(

We removed the filly from the barn and broke the sac. One of her legs was folded back and the other one was forward, as it should be.

For those of you still wonder what the baby looked like- she looked EXACTLY like her momma; Solid black, faint white snowflakes on her hips, striped hooves, and one sock on one of her hind legs.

Sorry for the bad news after all the hype. I'm very disappointed. :(
...but the good news is my mare is doing just fine and she did pass the placenta. She keeps running back to the barn looking around, which is sad, but she is in good health.

Thanks for all the support anyways!
