I'm no expert, but IMO there's a chance she could be pregnant.

i hope so poptart, but kickshaw has me worried
she is not as round as i have seen other mares, but she is hanging alot lower then normal, my avatar is a pic of her the week i got her covered.

The only way to really find out before the due date is to get a vet out to do a palpation or ultrasound. Pictures only go so far. I've seen a few horses now (in real life) where I was convinced they were pregnant, but they ended up not once I got the vet out. Preg checks don't cost much, and should be done.

That's a good idea...I think that'd be good, so you can tell for sure.

Aww, I'm sorry missy45690 - I didn't mean it like that!

I was just throwing some possibilities out there - and since I've seen one that was thought to have been pregnant and wasn't, I just threw it out there.

You can also look for physical signs...if the baby kicks or something. We also had one who was heavy in foal...and hers was a kicker. Everytime that colt would kick, her eyes would bug out :shock: and she'd whinny.

She does look really big in the second picture :wink:
