i recently got this abused mare at an auction last month, she is 7 years old, and all it said was that she was exsposed to a stud. she is huge like a watermellon and has a bag, but cant figure out on how long she is. any guesses? and what colour of appaloosa markings does she have?
You should join us over on MareStarers/Barn Cam Watchers Chat Board. A side shout at her level and an udder picture will help is guessing how far along she is! Congrats on your new mare, she is beautiful!
Do you know if she's had a foal before? Can you take a photo of her bag?
At this point, it's just a guess that - yes, she is. But you need to keep checking her bag and see if you can get liquid from her teats.
Feel her butt muscles. They will soften up like jello when she's close. And the liquid will start feeling sticky as she gets close.
When she's eating, place you hands around her middle for foal movement. If she is indeed pregnant, her side to side "watermelon" look will drop down under her belly at the very end of her pregnancy...as the foal begins to prepare itself for birth.
I don't know about your Appy color questions except to acknowledge that your girl is obviously an Appy! LOL. There are many appy breeders on here that can respond to that.
Kuddos to you for adopting this lovely girl!
