This is a picture of my maiden mare at 5 months along. Granted, every mare carries differently, but I'm honestly not thinking your filly is not bred. Yet, Then again, I'm not a vet.
Your mare is very nice lookin!

I would worry that she is pregnant. I know a 3 year old mare who was bred before she was purchased by her current owner. They had a pelvic done on her and the vet said she was in danger of losing the foal, and possibly her own life. Something about her uterus not being developed enough and thin. You really really really need to have a vet come out and check your mare. This is a pretty serious thing, a lot can go wrong with maiden mares.

And how will you know in 2 weeks? It is not like she is going to have the foal then....as you said she is about 6 months along. Hopefully you are having the vet out. Why, if you suspected that she was bred over the fence 6 months ago, have you waited so long to get care for her? Makes me furious.

Honestly, I am having a hard time believing that this thread is real.......

I have heard of horses doing that. I did call the vet. If he was worried he would have said. But he was not to concerned. I am going to do the pregnancy test before spending a bunch of money on the vet, so that I know if I need to have him come out. She is not acting at all funny, she runs around like a 2 Year old should. I know my horse, and if she was acting funny or sick, in any way i would not let her suffer. I would call the vet out ASAP. And in two week that is when the horse pregnancy test gets here. I would go to the feed store and get one, but they don't carry them so I have to order one off line. I guess that is what you get from living in the middle of no where! XD

Ya, this is what worries me. I was talking to this person whose horse had a baby too young and i broke it's pelvic. I would hate for this to happen to my horse! :(

Stop mucking around with ordering tests and have her palped by a licensed veterinarian.

OP-you keep saying how smart and responsible you are, but, many of us, had we had ANY CLUE our 2 yr old was bred-would have had the vet IMMEDIATELY and had her luted. Plain and simple. Now all you can do is hope for the best. Again-ridiculous and unnecessary to even be having all this drama. One shot could have eliminated all of it, and I would bet it would be a whole lot less expensive AND easier on your mare than all of this. To sit around and wait for a mail order pregnancy test-really?

Incidentally, even though both the stud and your horse are papers, the foal will not be registerable until/unless the stud owner signs off on breeding report papers, etc - and good luck on them not expecting a nice, healthy stud fee for your little "accident". So IF your mare is "lucky" enough to be pregnant you will have a grade foal on your hands.
I have to wonder at what caliber of "world champion" stud horse is left out in a situation where he has the ability to cover a mare over the fence, though - as most people with a horse of that standing also maintain appropriate fencing, etc to prevent such 'accidents' as they can cause serious injury to their champion stud.
