    OK, so my mini I purchased on 04/21/2018, she is with foal and she is about 38" tall. How many days have ya'll had your mini's go? Minimum she can be is 328 days and maximum 341 days. I calculated if she came into heat around April 08 (reason being, the kill pen got her from auction and they had a stud in with them so I figure around 2 weeks max she was with a stud.) I've read mini's usually go around 320 days not the normal full size horse 335-360 days. Would love to hear your experiences

    Minis actually have a much broader range than full-size horses, while the average is around 320 days; they can have viable foals as early as 290 days, but also go well over a year. With it being early in the season, she'll likely go longer.

    The longest gestation I experienced here was 362 days, producing a very developed colt, easy delivery. My usual was 323 days to 330 days.
