Our donkey is about 10 years old. We rescued her about a year ago in February. She was previously with a bunch of jacks. What do you all think? We’ve suspected she might be pregnant for a while, but her vulva has recently swelled, which makes me wonder even more. Is that typically something that happens in late pregnancy? If she is pregnant, she will be due pretty soon I’d guess!

When was the last day she was with the jacks? I know their gestation is about 365 days but I understand it can be variable...11-14 months or something. So,,, by the looks and since you see a difference, it is very possible she is bred.... If you know when her last date of exposure to the jacks... you can count forward from there...so if it was in Feb when you got her, then she could very well be bred and expecting. The biggest thing is you are noticing a change so that is a good indication that she is bred.
