When I got Kiri, I was suspicious that she was pregnant (one of those intuitive flashes I get), but then while at Michelle's, she was being such a turd and her back/ovaries were sore, I decided that I was mistaken.
This is a picture from the slaughter lot where I got her:
This is now:
Equine gestation is 11 months, roughly. Since I don't know when she was bred (before going to the slaughter lot, I'm pretty sure), I have no idea when she's due. I can tell she's foaled before from the look of her udder/teats (they've been used!).
While this is exciting, it's also very worrisome. I don't do baby horses. I don't have the time it takes to get them handle-able, and comfortable with humans. I hadn't bargined on a two-fer!
However, when talking to a friend today about it, we came up with a name for the (very possibly impending) foal - Who's Your Daddy. It's gender neutral, and the barn name can be anything.
Progress reports will be intermittent, but forthcoming.
Oh, and I've had 88 inches of rain in 6 months. $%(^*$_)(%^*(^
