    Hello All! So my 9 yr old APHA is bred for her first time this year, she is about 157 days into her pregnancy. For the past 5 months she hasn't shown one single sign of her cycle, and her pregnancy was confirmed early on (day 47 I believe).Today I noticed she was getting ''flirty' with the...

    I have a large 10 years old Azteca mare that is expecting her first foal. She is at day 351. We are quite sure of her dates as we had several ultrasounds performed following her AI. She had been carrying her foal fairly high but dropped significantly yesterday. Her bag has slowly grown over...

    I have an 18 year old pregnant shetland mare that I rescued last year. She was very wild/ferral and it has taken a very long time, lots of patience and hard work to even be able to groom her. She now lets you groom her and doesn't mind being in small spaces with me... until 4 days ago. Shes...

    I do horse rescue. A few months ago, I rescued Ebony, a 3 year old mare and her baby from the kill pen. They said Nala was 3 months old. She was thin and has put on alot of weight, but now looks like she could be pregnant. She would of been when i got her. She would be at least 6 months or more...
  5. Horse Training
    My friend bought Blaze (a barely trained 5 year old TWH mare) a few months ago, he barely knows anything about keeping a horse, and truly only bought her because he thought that "she looked like a nice horse" and had ridden his cousin's horses (note: all older and fully trained) and decide he...

    My mare is 288 days bred, and, going by her previous pregnancy, she seems to begin bagging up a month ahead. She foaled at 301 days last time, and I'm a bit concerned that she may do the same this time. She began developing her udders on October 28th. They go up and down with the weather, amount...

    It has recently been brought to my attention that my 5 year old appendix mare could be pregnant. When I got her in mid June this year she was pretty thin and under weight but with some good feed she quickly put on the pounds... A LOT. Now she has had her feed cut in half for about a month and...

    In August I became the proud owner of a mare as a gift (Guy didn't want her anymore). She looked like she had a grass belly but after checking her up, the vet said she is just bloated. Now another two months along the line she is even bigger around the girth. Did some research on the causes of...

    My mare is in season at the mo, and has been in with mine and my friends horses for a couple of weeks, her and this one 'gelding' have been very close and stay together in the field a lot. I say 'gelding' as he acts very much like a rig and is always with the mares and really stands up to my...

    Okay, when we first got my mare, Blossom, it was May 21, 2010. (5-21-10) and we noticed she was already big, but my dad said most Quarter horses are really big anyways. The man who sold us Blossom, said she could possibly be pregnant by a gray stud in the pasture by the man who sold it to the...

    Well, we think my horse Blossom is pregnant. Could you help me by guessing the due date by looking at her pictures?, She has been in the pasture with horses when we bought her, she has been fed the same amount so were pretty sure she is pregnant, and I don't know when the due date is, it would...
