Becoming depresed......
Does anyone know if a Minature could get a Quarter Horse preanant???....... Alone?

If there is a will theres a way. Donkey+horse=mule , Mini+horse=minihorse or horsemini? guess you'll know for sure in about 11 months :wink:

If there is a large enough hill or incline for the mini to stand on, anything is possible.

not at the time there wasn't, or at least i dont remember one...
The other problem is that she was all beat up, masive holes and from what my mom said she layed down......
My baby is also very pretective of her pen though. But my mom knows it also makes me very angry... But she's my baby & I guess that she never knew that I would become depress over this!
The only Horse that loved me back is now pregnant..... Kind of is depressing.... Mabey I am to protective over her?? :cry: :cry:

Don't be depressed! Look at it the other way, getting pregnant isn't a bad thing at all, your mare will be fine, and you'll have a new baby!

What do you think is depressing about it?

Vidaloco 11-12-2007 01:49 PM

Don't get too depressed till you know for sure. Maybe a vet check is in order?

Grumman 11-12-2007 01:58 PM

It has been six months already, should I start to feel something??
HA HA.... No vet is up here, and I dont trust the vet that does come up here.

I have tried to look on the bright side... Hasnt worked out. She may mellow out after, but I like a little spunk in her. Besides she is generally pretty lazy...

Not really, you won't notice much till the last few months. Her belly of course will get big, she will start to bag up (get milk). I had a mare that was maybe, maybe not pregnant and we didn't really know till about a week or so before she gave birth. I do continue to ride the last 2 pregger girls I had till the last month before they foaled. I rode Vida the day before for about 10 min. bareback in the round pen.

Man this sucks, although I havent seen much b!tch coming out of her... Towards me atleast, my mom said she pins her ears at my dad, and her, but when she does do it to my mom she thro's the pitch fork at her now she is scared of everything I do, so I go out there every night and sit with her maby that is why she is never b!tchy to me??

What makes you think she is even in foal? A mini/QH breeding seems difficult to me, though I am sure possible in some weird situation. If you are truely concerned about her possibly being in foal, have an ultrasound done, or blood drawn. Don't worry about it until you know for sure. It would also be good to know for sure because she needs to be receiving proper nutrients and vaccinations.

If you love the mare so much, I don't see how getting a foal out of her should be a depressing thing - even if it will be some sort of interesting combo...could turn out to be a good child sized horse when it matures (level headed like a quarter horse, but small enough for a child to work with). Find the positive side :)

I am also not understanding what you mean by her being beat up and how it relates to the possibility of being bred?
