Possibly still in foal....? help please!
Hi, one of our old shetland mares (22 this year) misscarried a foal few months ago, was weird like foetus but was like a toy pony. anyway she seems to be getting bigger in her belly and has milk but not a huge udder....doesnt really eat alot of hay and goes out every night and in during the day and only on a small amount of hard feed....
Is it possibly for a pony to be pregnant with twins, abort and deliver one and still have one inside?! i personally didnt think so but the ever growing belly and milk are pregnancy give away's! I didnt personally put her in with the stallion someone else did. She last foaled in April 08, she's not been running with the stallion for a while now.
Any help would be great! cheeeers!:-)
If you are worried, call the vet. That would be your best chance of making sure your pony is safe.
Agreed, and it would be a miracle for you to have twins. Good luck. I would personally call the vet ASAP
It is possible but very unlikely. I do have a friend whose mini aborted one fetus last year and went on to deliver a live foal later. But in all my years thats the only one I know of.
Some mares especially older mares have milk all year round even if they dont have a foal by their side
