Impatiently waiting!

Hi everyone! I picked up a little mini mare at auction last September. Recently her belly has been looking a bit suspicious, and I’ve noticed some unusual movements. The vet is coming out on Tuesday to preg check her, but I thought I would share some pictures with you guys. I know you can’t tell for sure from pictures, and she is VERY fuzzy, but for a bit of fun I would be interested to see what you all think!

They do have one! It’s called the weefoal lol. But they have to be 120-300 days bred for it to work.

Yes I was told about Weefoal the other day but by the time it would get here I figured I could just get the vet out, and hopefully have a more definitive answer as I’m sure I would mess it up somehow haha

Thank you Theresa, that’s really kind of you. I have quite a motley crew - 3 from a rescue ranch and 2 little ones from auction. They are all very loved and will live out their days on our farm 😊 My poor husband though, I told him when we bought this place that I would have 1 pony and 1 horse...oops!

Hard to tell about a mini, especially in their winter fuzzies.

This mare is not pregnant but scarfed down her portion of the hay plus some of what the other 2 should have been eating so she always looked pregnant.

This is a gelding with his winter coat. Believe it or not he's not fat but his coat is so thick and long that it makes him look about 3 X bigger than he is.

P.S. Is Mohr your name? It's my maiden name and you don't see it very often. I don't know if it's true or not but I always heard if you were a Mohr then you were related somewhere along the line. We originated in Germany.

I agree they can be very deceiving, that’s why I figured it was best to get the vet out and know for sure. We have lots of coyotes and wolves around here, and if she is in foal and something happened to her or the foal while delivering I would never forgive myself. Our gelding looks like he’s about ready to pop but it’s a combination of hay belly and winter fuzz. It was the shape, lopsided look and the odd movements that made me think something might be up, not to mention she was in a pen at auction with a mini stud.
And yes my married name is Mohr, my husband’s family also came from Germany originally, small world!
Here is my gelding, Barney, facing the camera, and Rosie with her butt to the camera.
