The colt was eleven months old yesterday. He was born last year on April 1.
Mares supposedly go back into heat shortly after birth so let’s say she was bred on April 10. Adding 340 days to that means she’d be due on March 16—two weeks from today.
She’s behind the colt in the photo, but does she look like she’s two weeks out? Nope, not even close. Is the stud still in the corral? Yep.
After the colt was born the mare told the stud, by numerous kicks, that she didn’t want anything to do with him. For the first six weeks, she ruled the roost with an iron fist.
So maybe they only get pregnant when they want to get pregnant?
