So we all know that May typically gains a bit of weight as the early spring grass pops up. Despite wearing a muzzle full time, she has gained even more weight than in previous years. Since her workload is still pretty high and her diet is as restricted as it can be, I decided to bring in the vet to make sure we aren’t wandering into founder territory.
My vet is a track vet by trade, so she is more used to thoroughbreds than May. She is definitely more used to seeing ribs than fat. We discussed May’s diet and workload, and she seemed as confused as I did. The distinct hay belly just didn’t really make sense. So we decided to Ultrasound her gut to make sure everything looked ok. Well damn…
Sorry. Worst photo ever. Do you see what’s there? I didn’t… But my vet did. I think she actually started laughing, but I don’t know because all I could hear was the rush of blood in my head when she said, “That’s a foal.”
“A WHAT?!” Do you know what my barn and my life are NOT EQUIPPED for? A foal.
How could this happen? Welp… remember when May decided to go on adventures a few months ago? Yup. We thought she never went far but… I might have a thoroughbred/QH/Belgian cross in a couple more months. Or a mule… Really, it could be anything.
I guess I will have to come up with a name, any ideas? I was thinking:

Right? I would LOSE it. although, idk if I would mind if it came out looking like that cute buckskin 😉
Aww, but a baby May would be the cutest thing ever!!
Hahah wouldn’t it tho? She might cross well with a leggy thoroughbred. Or I could end up with a VERY SPICY 15h horse hahaha

Well done. I’m a day late in reading so didn’t have my guard up as much as I should have. Still, it would be a cute horse and a cute name lol
It really would’ve been cute! Haha
Reading this several days after April Fool’s I fell for it hook, line, and sinker.
Haha if it makes you feel better, plenty of people fell for it on April 1st 😉
