    We got a Jenny about 5 months ago and never suspected that she may be pregnant. Today while going to clean her area up we found a fetus amniotic sac and all... Very new to all of this but read they are pregnant for about 12months and not really sure how far along she was... I was not able to get a picture before my husband cleaned it up... I guess my question here is do I have to be worried about her? Anything I should watch out for? Anything I should do for her? Should I get a vet out here? She's only about 2.5yrs old and pretty healthy (as far as we knew). She has had her vaccines and well taken care of... This was just something we did not plan on doing with her as of yet anyway she was just a companion with our goats! We don't really know much about this still new to us and not many great articles out on the web any insight/advice would be greatly appreciated...

    I don't have any advice, just wanted to say I'm sorry for the loss of your foal, and hope your jenny is okay.
