She was unfortunately bred once last year, and foaled September 11th. Uncomplicated delivery, healthy foal, but I definitely would not have bred her had it been my choice (I bought her and the baby right after she foaled) given her conformational faults and...well...less than stellar personality XD I love her to death but she's quite the little alpha mare with enough 'tude for a mare 5x her size! LOL. Out of curiosity, why do you ask? Is there a defining part of her body that shows that she has foaled before!
This is her filly, if anyone is curious. She had some locking stifle issues for a short period but I talked to the man who bought her from me a month ago and he said that it has completely gone away with a careful diet and access to exercising herself whenever she wants to, so I'm hoping that was just a result of her growing so fast (supposedly she's already 30" tall and only 9 months old! Sour is only 34".). Otherwise I think she turned out pretty good considering her parents. And yes, if its not yet obvious...she's a mini mule ;) 4 months old in the photo, and mid- foal fuzzies on top of donkey fuzzies on top of winter fuzzies xD
Everyone always mistook her for a purebred donkey though, she looks nothing like mama except for maybe a more refined face than a donkey, and a full tail!
You're not kidding about how hard it is to keep them at the correct weight! She had the most horrifying hay belly for a while, no worms, but thankfully that was rectified with some daily probios. She's dry lotted 24/7 so that I can regulate how much fat and sugar she's taking in, and I try to make sure she gets decent hay but not super high quality, but her weight fluctuates like crazy even still. I'm just going to leave her feed as is right now though and hope that as her work load increases again, she slims down just a tad bit so that her weight is perfect.
Needless to say, I'm totally content with her as my cart pony and don't ever plan on breeding her again ;) sucklings are a pain.
