Is my pony pregnant?

I was fly spraying my mare today an noticed that she was leaking milk. I haved owned her for 7 months and no where near any studs. The previous owner told me there is no way she could br pregnant. She did have a baby 14 months ago and the baby stayed by her side for about 7 months. My mare was dried up when I got her. She is gaining weight but was under weight. She is eating good and she does look like she has a little hay belly going on. Is it possible for my mare to not be pregnant and still leak milk or is she pregnant?

Only your vet can tell you for sure.

She could be going through a false pregnancy, but I wouldn't count on anything. Best bet is to get the vet out.

If the horse is that far along that she is leaking milk you can put your fist against her belly and get her belly swinging and you will feel a bump against your hand. That bump would be the foal. This is not something you do violently.. and if you have not done it you do need someone to show you how.

Of course get the vet. Leaking milk in a non pregnant mare can be an indication of other issues (as well as close to foaling). Vet will do a rectal exam and tell you if your horse/pony is preggers.

No one here can tell you if your mare is pregnant. If she is pregnant, you need to know so you don't walk out one day and there's a baby you're not prepared for. Call the vet.
