Help my pregnant mare was kicked in the belly

I'm freaking out, I just got a bred mare from a rescue type situation. I'm trying to introduce her to my mini donkey. Well long story short worse case scenario she was kicked in the belly. She seems absolutely fine. Am I just paranoid. Are they pretty resilient, should I worry about her running and trotting, kicking?

Maybe they need a little more "fence introduction" time before being put together.
If she seems fine she probably is.

Yes Nitisha, I thought all was well after the fence time and even after they were penned together. It was the dreaded first meal together that did it

That always seems to be the time. You can never tell with horses.
My new mare spent 6 weeks next to her new friend. They seemed in love. Now they can only be together when grazing because the new horse loves kick fests. When on dry lots they stand next to each other with a fence between them & pout. Go figure.

I don't want to sound rude but if you got her from a rescue type situation you should have quarantined her for at least 3 weeks to make sure she doesn't have anything she could give to your other horses. She's probably fine if she's acting fine. There is a lot of stuff between the outside of the mare and the foal, well, depending on how far along she is.

To be honest Shut up Joe. That would have been the ideal situation but I am very limited on space (hence the reason I keep mini's) I'm not at all offended by you're trying to help. Things seem to be going well.

At first I thought you were saying: To be honest, shut up, Joe.
