    Mini Mare holding onto foal WAY too long

    Hi there, So my mini mare who is about 13 years old was pasture bred in 2021 and was expected to have had her foal in July. Still has not. She has been slightly bagged up and has had clear fluid coming from her tits(prepping for milk) for quite some time. We got her preg checked in September to...

    What color do you think?

    Lily is now a little over a month old and is starting to shed her baby coat! She was born a nice red sorrel. We definitely thought she would stay that way but I guess not! Her Dam is a black tobiano and her sire is a palomino tobiano. What is your thoughts??? Both sire and dam have quite a...

    My Mare is Possibly Pregnant.

    Just purchased this little girl a couple of weeks ago. Previous owner wasn't sure if she was pregnant or not. Watched her eating this morning and could swear I saw movement, but is it only wishful thinking? I can't yet get a picture of her udder or her vulva because she kicks anytime I show...

    What do you feed your ponies for feed?

    Wondering what everyone feeds their minis. From foal to senior? I just picked up a bag of Valley Flax and CFS Elevate for my 2 seniors. Plus they get free choice hay. Just wondering what everyone else feeds. Pictures of my 2 seniors just in hay alone for almost 3 years.

    WeeFoal 120 - is this test positive or invalid?

    Hi all, My mare isn't mini, but I see a few of you here use the WeeFoal pregnancy tests and I'm hoping you can help me. I used the WeeFoal 120 on my mare, this is photo of the test. I'm not sure whether the C line is faint enough to be considered invalid or not. I have emailed WeeFoal to ask...

    Unknown dates: How much longer?

    Hi there! We bought Star a couple months ago. Previous owner said she may have been bred and if she was she may be due in April. We noticed nothing until about 2 1/2 weeks ago. Here are pics from today? How much longer would you think she has?

    Foal Color

    My weanling Luna was born a sorrel, but is now getting more and white hairs in her coat. Does this mean that she could be changing color? I know that some people say its like opening a present the next spring because they change color so much. If she is changing color, what color could she...

    Well I haven't decided on a registered name but I think I'm going with Zoey for her barn name! She was born at about 2 am. Solid silver black appaloosa. The sweetest little thing. (compared to my grandmother's filly who was born a month ago who was a brat from the minute she was born!) She's my...

    How long is it after udder development that mini mares foal?

    My AMHR size B mini mare is 289 days pregnant. Yesterday, she started having udder development. She had nothing the day before. What has been your experience on how long it takes for the udder to fill until baby is born? Is this early a bad thing?
