They are too cute ! Great color and markings. Your jenny is either fat / wormy or maybe preggers !! Are you going to breed the boys? ;make mini mules if you get a mini mare ? If not , I would geld them as soon as the weather cools down and not so many flies.

That is probably not a very reliable form of birth control. Doesn't work so well in humans and probably not in equines , either.

Foal
I'd have to agree with the other person who said something about Dixie having a bit of a belly . IMO is she looks pregnant . I have about 5 yrs of experiance with donkeys . My grandfather had 2 jennys and 1 jack . Within those 5 yrs they became 7 donkeys.

It takes a jenny 12 months to have a foal . A jack CAN father a foal at only 1 yr old ,sometimes less. A jenny can get pregnant at 1 yr old . I think the idea of you gelding the jacks is a good one. They always say that a good stallion makes a great gelding .

I have a black long yearling jenny . Had her since birth and she is becoming my driving donk . Her mother got pregnant with her when she WAS NOT in heat/season .Just a FYI . ;)

Foal
Yes, I am trying to get figure out when the weather won't be as hot for them to be gelded. When Dixie, the jenny, first arrived her belly was just like this. She had been wormed and didn't get a lot of hay, just enough to nibble on. I'm not sure if there was a jack where she came from or not. Someone else has mentioned that she seems bigger/fatter but I'm not sure if I'm just used to what she looks like and can't notice a change or if she really hasn't gotten any bigger/fatter. When I look at pics though I swear I can see a difference.
Here is what she looked the day after I got her.

And here she is from yesterday (September 5, 2012)


Is there really a difference? Or is it just the way I took the picture?

She appears to be getting larger.

The first ones fromm when you first got her appear to be an ugly wormy bellyy, hence her hideous coat. Now that she is in better condition, yes her belly got "smaller" but she ha progressed to bigger, I think she's preggers too!

Foal
Does it look like she was possibly bred before I she arrived here? I got to looking at her from behind and her belly seems lopsided. Like, it's bigger on the left side of her body than on her right side. Here's a picture so you can see what I mean:

And a side shot:


I can't remember exactly but isn't the 'lopsided' belly a pregnancy thing?
