She's really tiny maybe 27 inches. Actually an 8 month belly would have made her 13 months at breeding time not 10 months  I'm not judging her being pregnant or not by the size of her belly, I've put a lot of weight on her feeding and supplementing, it's the shape and her belly just looks weird in comparison to my other minis, and it's a gut feeling is all

She was 12 months old in February. If she were to have bred in March when our breeding season starts she would be 13 months old at that time and 7-8 months pregnant right now

Well, I'd go with your "gut" and we'll be watching for some more pictures as we progress in the next few months.  Can't wait to see what turns out.  Many young mare have successfully carried and delivered, the problem being the registration of such a foal here in the States. 

Keep us posted with pictures please!

I see the same shape to her belly , though it is bigger now, but she is fluffier too which can make her look bigger.
I am glad you got a wee foal coming, that will help you decide what you need to do.
She is such a cute little thing, and she seems pretty refined.
Congrats on your Haffie and please update with wee foal results asap!!
