    How much do minis cost yearly?

    I dont have much else to add other than do yourself a massive favour and get a vet check done. Spending money getting a vet check done may save you a lot of money in the long run.

    Preggers or Fat????

    There used to be quite a few that bred Donkeys on here a few years back. They always seemed to carry much longer than 11 months. Good Luck Holly , you are going to be exhausted by the time this summer is over :)

    Advise please on older broodmare

    Yep I reckon she’s definitely making good progress . She sure is keeping you waiting , but it’s so hard when you don’t know her history . When you are standing behind her , are her sides still sticking out ? . From that side on pic she does look like she is starting to drop .

    Shes looking really good, I think her udder will fill a little more ( watch for the centre line to disappear and her nipples to point down as it fills) wishing you a safe foaling :)

    My Mare is Possibly Pregnant.

    She very well could be pregnant and treating her as if she is, is the best thing to do. As you said her previous owner may have missed a later covering, so maybe shes just alot further behind than thought. We dont have coyotes here, but my neighbour does have Llamas in with his sheep and lambs...

    I found one in my front paddock up by the road a couple of years ago, I put him in the lake ( maybe I shouldnt have ). Maybe thats also why im not seeing many fish jumping about !

    My Mare is Possibly Pregnant.

    Do you have any idea when she may have been possibly bred ? From the pictures at the start of your thread to the latest ones, I don't see a great deal of change. For a mare that has had two previous foals, she should be much wider, unless she was bred at the end of last breeding season. ?? Dont...
