Last year ERF re-homed a lovely chestnut mare called Mavis to a family in the Charente. There was always a possibility that she could be pregnant as she had lived in a field with a Spanish colt. The vet scanned her in December and said that she wasn’t pregnant….but she kept getting bigger and bigger! They got the vet out again who performed an internal examination a couple of weeks ago and said “yes she was pregnant” and had about 4 months to go.
Mavis was looking rather bloated, to say the least, so we were delighted to hear that last Wednesday had given birth to a very beautiful colt foal.
Congratulations Mavis and your new baby boy!!
