She looks like she could be.... but no one on here is going to be able to tell you from pictures. Get a vet out to check her. And in the mean time put her back on some feed... Did I read correctly that you took her off grain? She needs something if she is indeed pregnant, so feed her until you find out for sure from a vet. What is her diet now?

Oh ok.. I thought you meant you took away her grain. I was just saying treat her like she is pregnant until you find out for sure.
I am glad the vet is coming, that is the only way to know for sure :)
But by the pictures, she does indeed look (quite) pregnant. I say that since her belly is wide.
Did you not know she was/could be pregnant when you bought her? It's such a shame when people lie or with-hold information :? Especially something this important.

Edited to ask... is she bagging up at all?

Hard to tell, I have a gelding that looks like that. Pretty sure he is not pregnant.

Look forward to hearing what the vet says. Please update when you know.

But I decided not to breed her but here in the last month in a half she started getting huge so I guess I didn't have to breed her lol the guy I had bought her from said he didn't think she was bred but he did have stallions pastured right beside her stall area and I have heard of them going through a fence to breed so I don't know thanks everyone ...and she isn't bagging up but her tits are a little swollen not big just a little swelling.

She does look like she could be pregnant. She's definitely cute. I just can't believe that he doesn't know. Either his stallions were securely pastured, and there was never any sign that they had broken through the fence, or gone over it or whatever, or they weren't and there was a definite chance they could have gotten out. Please do let us know what the vet says when he comes out.

Ah yes thats it i knew i recognised that mare.
Luckily if she is pregg your already commited to giving it a forever home
