She looks pregnant.
She also looks very underweight, especially for carrying a baby.
You should not be able to stand back and see a horse's ribs. She looks thin through the flank as well. Please up her feed - perhaps work her up to being on 24/7 hay. Good quality hay, I mean.
With the weight she's at now, if she's been like this through the pregnancy, I would expect the foal to be small. I would also guess that she will not come through foaling looking good either.
Please speak to your vet ASAP about the proper care for a mare in foal - including nutrition, deworming, vaccinations etcetera.
