    I don't have any contact info for owner 1.. I don't even know their name. I wish I did. I bought her on impulse, sort of (even though now I'm glad I did!) and didn't really get the information I should have... But, there were 3 people with cash in hand wanting her right behind me.

    I will probably give it a few weeks with no grain and see if she looses a little of her belly, and if she doesn't shape up I will get her checked out.

    1. Has she come into heat since you have had her? If she has then probably not preggers. A gelding improperly done, or one that had just been gelded can still breed. She just looks rolly polly fat. Is there a kind of study gelding around, if so tease her, if she squirts and winks she probably is not preg

    I'm not sure if she's been in heat. We have a gelding but she has never acted differently around him at all.

    I have a tb gelding who looks more pregnant...lol the only way you will be able to put your mind at ease is call the vet. You may not want to spend the money now...but really...if you can't afford a vet call now...you will certainly not be happy about the expenses to come if she is infoal.

    Update: Found a vet who did house calls and he came and checked her out and she isn't preggers...just fat. I'm hoping she will loose some weight this winter.

    So now you know how to proceed. How old is she? Has she foaled before? According to her age and previous foals, she might always have a bit of a belly. If she's younger, then she could still be carrying worms or just needing work and a good diet. No good cutting back feed to condition her, if she's not being worked too.

    What is her current diet and work load? Has she been wormed with different/rotated wormers? Have you see her pass any worms?

    I wouldn't think too badly of the person who thought she might be pregnant. I might have thought so too.

    She's a pretty girl. What do you do with her?

    She is 6, never had a baby (in my knowledge). I worm monthly (correctly) and switch off wormers.

    Right now, her current diet is grass, a handful of grain and one scoop of Vita-Plus.

    She is worked anywhere between 1-5 hours per week.

    And, I ride her;) I agree, she is a cutie.
