    what breed is this rescue?


    Just a few days ago the rescue I work with contacted me to foster a pregnant mare and her colt. The mare is about 14hh and very skinny. So we are slowly working to put weight on her safely. The vet thinks she is due in about a month.

    The colt is about 11months old, maybe 11hh small and stocky.

    The stud of the colt looked to be a welsh pony x.

    The mare and stud were released up north in 2006 and have been eating dog food to survive. This is the first foal thwy had that survived.

    I can't seem to post pics here, but if you go to my profile, its in the rescue horse album. I will get conformation shots this weekend, we want her to settle in.

    The photos aren't great but the mare almost looks like an Arab cross.

    Ok here are some more pics of her, she wouldnt stand to the left, and the sun was behind my husband, and bright, so him moving wouldnt have been a great picture. Hope these are a bit better. Her weanling colt was calling for her hence her wanting to stand a certain way.

    Oh, she's cute! Still standing by Arab mix. Beats me on the other part. And I think her weight looks good, if not overly pregnant.

    Maybe Arab/Haflinger?

    Thanks . I am in total agreement with the arab cross, plus she notices EVERYTHING like my arab girl does!

    When you touch her she is all ribs, not that my horses are fat, she's could just be a different body style. She is eating 3 meals a day, small meals and access to hay 24/7 , and of course water too .

    Took her into a smaller paddock (100x40) and she trots like my arab she ran around for 30mins and then she went back in.

    What is a good exercise for a pregnant horse ?

    Question what breed is this rescue?

    I'm a little confused about your post and pics. Is the very cute horse in the pics the mare that's suppose to be preg. Or the 11 month old colt? If it is the mare she sure doesn't look pregnant or skinny. I also volunteer at an equine rescue & our horses look half dead every time they come to us. The mare you sent pics of looks great! However I have NEVER heard of a horse eating dog food. Anyway looks like you are taking good care of her now. I think she looks like she might have QH in her. Good luck with getting her through the pregnancy. TB Lover
