I'm glad you're getting the vet out.

If there's a stallion on the property even IF they were separated (which is not necessarily true or foolproof) she could still be pregnant. They will always find a way.
When someone says they are separated when in heat, I think that is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. How do you know ehn they come in heat. There is no alarm that goes off.
By the time you see heat signs it is too late. People like that shouldn't own horses.

I would notify the owner of all that is going on & ask what they are going to do about it before I spent a dime. You didn't sign up for this when you looked for a companion horse.

Hi all, just an update. Not managed to get vet out, it's new year, and as she isn't showing signs of being in pain we are holding out for normal vet hours, so will have one out next week. Today she has locked the grooming and carrots from daddy. She let us have a good feel around her tummy today, and whilst feeling we felt a pop. Do you think this is gas or baby?
the more we have talked about it, the more we are sure that whatever the costs we won't be sending her back. She is very much daddies pony, and he would be gutted. He spent an age giving her a good groom which she loves. As soon as we have confirmation, we will get something in writing, and we are going to offer to buy her regardless. We love her too much!!! My partner is sure that he felt movement when grooming, so now we are hopeful that she is! Am I right in entanglement would be seen towards the back of the belly, near the flank? If so it's now 3 of us who have seen it. Would gas produce the same thing?
Will post some more pics tomorrow as she is all spruced up now and looking like a fluff ball! God I feel all maternal like it's me having a bubba, sad hey!

Thanks lizzlou! Will keep everyone updated!! It's exciting but scary at the same time. I only wanted a companion lol, seems like I may of got a whole lot more. I think I would be gutted now if she wasn't and feel a little bit stupid! Can't wait til the vet comes.

I've seen some pretty amazing (painful? lol) videos of babies moving so try youtube. There's one on here specifically but can't remember where.

I have never seen gas make the belly move.. Babies that will make the belly move.
I would get a bill of sale Now , before the Vet. The Owner may want them back, after you spend money and get attached to both mare and foal.
Get a bill sale now. If the owner says something about a foal or possible foal, say no its a package deal .

Thanks guys, I will do. To be fair to the owner when I aired my concerns about the pregnancy, she was very apologetic and said she hadn't wanted saffy to have any more. She also said let her know if it was a problem for me, and she would sort something out. She is a nice person. I will still make sure it's done correctly though x

Goodness she is a cutie pie for sure! I am glad to hear that your giving her a good home Daisy and will keep my fingers crossed that you do get to purchase her and she will be in a home that she is loved, even if she does give you a little version of her too! It is a breath of fresh air to see people who genuinely care for their animals.

I was talking to a friend of mine last night, she said that she was talking to her daughter about when people treat their animals like they would their kids, taking them to the vet, getting care, all of this is included in ownership.
