    Taking Guesses

    I'm waiting on the mare that I'm supposed to be getting to be cleared for shipping. She needs a coggins and a health certificate. She is not going be getting a palpation while she is with her current owner, she'll have to wait until she gets here. The current owner sent me an e-mail saying that she was exposed to a 2 year old Quarter Horse colt for two weeks. She hasn't come into heat since she's had her. She is guessing she is pregnant but hasn't had a vet confirm it. If she is pregnant she isn't due until March/April. She is about 10 years old and this isn't her first foal if she is pregnant.

    I know you can't tell without a vet check, which I plan to do once she is here and settled. I was just curious as to what you guys thought just by the pictures. (Please don't say there is no way to tell without a vet check, lol, I already know that.) I'll post the results on here as soon as I find out.

    So Yes or No?

    Pictures when they first got her

    Isn't she pretty?

    I definitely see a baby belly! Let us know what the vet says, she's a cute girl

    I say there is a baby belly too but I also see that she is lacking a bit in groceries OR she has a big parasite problem and if that is the case she may not have a baby belly but rather a wormy belly...

    I have seen this before in rescues. People think mares are pregnant and they are not, they are very wormy. Once they are on a worming cycle about the second time around they have lost all of that puffy belly.

    NOT saying she isn't in foal.. BUT if she is in foal she really needs to get on a proper diet and in better flesh.

    Owner says mare is on regular worming but she will be wormed once she is here.

    For reference these are her other horses (the first is available for adoption as well)

    They don't look wormy at all.....

    I am betting baby belly.. not wormy. I do think she will do good to be with you now though because some of those pics look like she is getting thin.. She'll be just fine as as soon as she is with you.

    The lady bought her as a companion for her older Arabian (the bay in the picture above).

    She looks thin to me... : /

    Is it just me, or does this horse look oddly conformed?

    Shutupjoe, I think you got a preggers pony on your hands. Let us know what you find out asap!

    I think he is 20+ and pretty arthritic.
