It'll be awhile before I try pictures, the bottom dropped out on our temps.  Sorry I didn't get pics while it was decent.  Some days she looks maybe, some days not.

Keep crossing those fingers for her.
I'm still leaning towards maybe, but I thought I saw movement and maybe even felt it, but it was high up in the flank area, so don't know if that's an area to see/feel it or not.  [Might just have been digestion.]

Finally, finally, and finally, got pictures of Baybe to share.
Side, top and rear views.  Of course, she had to turn her head to look at me when I tried to take the rear shot, so the left side sticks out even more, throwing off the tell-tale lopsided look (looks really lopsided, but with her head turned it could be her stance).

I'm voting yes even with the extra bulge from head turning.  She has that nice round belly, and I'm praying she grows and grows and gives you that special little one this spring!!

Thank you.
It'll be interesting to see her personality when she has a foal at side.  she's a bit stand-offish now and pretty much has been since I got her.

As long as you are crossing your fingers for Baybe, cross them for the Buckskin Berry Fairy for this cross, please.  ;)
And, if you want to add paint, great; a pinto buckskin colt would be perfect; but I'll take healthy and thriving.

Since, I seem to be all about nutrition and trying to do my best with what I can readily get locally, if I can...
I added some alfalfa pellets to Baybe's ration last month.   Since, Baybe shares hay with Tilly, the mini donkey, the hay needs to be plain grass hay, as donkey's don't need alfalfa or any other rich feed; so I'll be adding to Baybe's daily ration to improve her diet.   All the mares (and, Tilly) are on a 12% protein extruded feed, it looks like rice krispies (and except for Bliss, they all love it), so to bump up nutrition for pregnancy/lactation I'll add either alfalfa pellets (like I did for Baybe) or a ration balancer (like I did the 2012 foaling season, which kept the mares in good condition).
