So, in my opinion and many other folk, we think Hetja is pregnant.
These opinions sometimes have percentages of chance attached to them. For instance, one person thinks Hetja is 80% pregnant. Last week, I would’ve agreed. A few days ago, I was beginning to get my head around the fact that we would probably only see one foal this year. But this week Hetja’s entire body shape changed. My photos really don’t capture her pregnancy belly but really it has all dropped a bit and she is much much wider.
And now I look at these pictures I took today and think Hetja looks very unpregnant again. Maybe it is just the camera angle.
Floss thinks Hetja is one of those women who wore their size 8 jeans all through pregnancy, possibly never knowing only to have a slight stomach ache in Tesco’s and then giving birth in the loos to a perfectly normal sized baby.
It is also difficult because Brá is most definitely pregnant at us.
There is no trying to hide her foal. Hopefully it won’t be too long now. Brá is beginning to change shape too. Her bottom has gone sort of saggy-pointy.
And we all know who is to blame for all of this. Mostly because Taktur never stops shouting to the mares who do their best to ignore him.
Time will tell.
