Hi everyone! Hey I rescued my first horse just a couple days ago. I've had horse all my life but never rescued one until now... That being said, this wasn't actually a rescue org, so there's not a lot of background on her. This is what the group I got her from said about her.
She's between 5-8, isn't in the best body condition, needs some TLC, due in the Spring, and is broke.
Ok my question(s) are theses...
She does have something in her bag, but I can't tell if it's from weaning a foal off of her recently or if she's bred. I can see all of her ribs, but her hips aren't sticking out and she hasn't lost a lot of muscle tone either. However she DOES need groceries for sure. If she is pregnant and due in the spring would she be bagging up but not really showing her baby bump? I have some pictures of her but being new to this I don't know how to attach them.
Any advise would be much appreciated. I do plan on getting her to our vet, but she's pretty upset, and I'd like to gain her trust before we head off to the scary vet lol. This is only the 2nd we've had her home. But the not knowing is killing me hahaha. I haven't dealt with pregnant mares before either, and if she is bred I want to give them the best chances I can.
Thanks in advance!
