Ok so we all know it takes a mare almost a year to carry a foal right? Right so theres 2 mares and donkey in a field together at the barn where I board and we always thought the donkey was too short to any damage when it came to the mares but eventually I started noticing that one the mares was getting fatter but only around her middle and of course the owners just thought she was fat with a grass belly. The farrier was out said she looked pregnant and the owners shrugged it off and then vet was out to check on another horse's leg and said he would check her they wanted, they said no she's just fat. Zoo this was back in november. And the whole I kept telling my mom that the horse looked pregnant she was just too fat for it to be grass belly. Me not knowing to much about horse pregantacy decided maybe I was wrong. Butttttt then my mom goes out to feed my horse for me since I was visiting a friend and sends me this!!!!!!!!! Isn't it cute!!!! I find it so funny me nothing about horse pregnancy was right the whole time! And as of right now were asumming its a mule lol

Def a mule. They need to get the donkey gelded or moved to his own pasture.

Its not so much funny as sad. Her owners should have had her checked regardless of it just being a grass belly.They obviously do not pay attention enough or know their horse as that is just not something that is hard to miss especially at the last few weeks/days of pregnancy. Baby is cute but I suggest she gets a vet out asap to make sure its healthy.

Wow - so "funny" that after more than one person, including their vet, suggested the possibility the owner opted to just shrug it off -- not to mention pasturing them together in the first place (sorry, that is not an 'accidental' breeding by any stretch) -- sad is definitely more the word I'd pick.

By funny I meant that something told me she was pregnant and I know nothing about horse pregnancy! I don't even know the right signs to look for! And Believe me when I say these people as nice as they may be are not the sharpest tools in the shed and I agree that should have had her checked out but no one ever listens to me when it comes to horse stuff. I mean I have a horse that foundered awhile back so his trimming needs to kept up and they won't have the farrier out on these ( very unusual) pretty days just cause the ground has been wet. News flash its not going to dry up when its going to rain again! They make me so angry sometimes I mean they won't even clean up the metal around the barn cause they think snakes are going to come out in cause the suns out! *sorry for the mimi rant I posted to celebrate the baby not start a rant off*

Easy there yall. Its a cute baby and theres no reason for you to yell at her for finding it funny. Its not her horse and donkey and theres nothing she can do to fix the situation...the threads about the cutie pie foal and IT IS ADORABLE btw.
Theres nothing you can do if its somebody elses animals and you can't fix stupid irresponsible owners...
