Her udder is bigger than when we got her. It was her larger udder that alerted me to her possible pregnancy.

I bought her in Dec. When I asked if she could be pregnant. His response was " I don't know ". I the asked any possibility??? His response was " not sure". Very evasive

Yes. He lead me to believe that they had had her for a while and that his girls trained her to sell for Christmas money. But she really isn't all that trained so I am thinking he hadn't had her very long.

Welcome to the forum :)

 

I agree with the others , there is a possibility that she is carrying a foal. Its hard to know with the lack of answers you got from the previous owner.

 

If she came to you in December last year , she would have been in foal. By now you should be able to feel movement as she would be into the last trimester. 

 

Magic marker minis explained above how to feel for movement. 

 

Can you post another set of Pics in a few days so we can look at the comparison between the two to see if there are any noticeable differences :)

Thank you everyone. I have tried and tried to feel movement. Nothing. And there has been no physical changes. She hasn't gotten bigger anywhere. So alas. I guess she is just gotten to be a very fat pony. Winter should take care of that. I can not say I am not very disappointed. I am.

I would still keep an eye on her.
I've had mares that were pregnant and baby was not very active. Some babies move a lot, some very little.
As for any changes, they can be hard to see; especially for someone who looks at her everyday.
Wouldn't hurt to take pictures in a few days and show us.

Here are a few pics from today. Her belly is an inch bigger around but not do much on the sides.
