Poor Dora!!Thank you, she is an absolute darling. With everything she went through it amazes me what a beautiful soul she is and how she hasn’t given up on humans. I’ll attach a picture of what she looked like when she was seized. But yes I wonder if the heat had something to do with it, or even maybe she’s one that gets some swelling when she is coming into season, but absolutely I will keep an eye just to monitor things in case there are any significant changes that could indicate something being up with her (not meaning pregnancy as such, but other issues that could possibly present themselves down the line). That’s the thing with owning horses hey, you almost need to have them for a full year to figure out what their “normal” is.
I can get a picture of Rosie from behind when I do my evening check. I’m sure she has to be in foal given what the vet saw (I imagine a big black blob of fluid containing what appeared to be a head would have caused her some health issues by now ), but she likely has a ways to go - if she did in fact get bred around the time of the auction, or even by Barney after being gelded then she wouldn’t be due til around August. Hahaha well given that we live in Manitoba, I sure hope it doesn’t end up being a November baby, or Rosie and foal will be moving into my house! Ugh isn’t it just, major kudos to those who do this on a yearly basis!
So glad you have her now and she looking amazing!!
