apparently, i have an over active imagination

(or maybe right now, i am just gun shy)....i came home for my dinner break and took the dogs for a quick run. Spritely and Gideon came up from the bottom pasture and Spritely kept following me around ( she usually ignores me) and turning to keep her belly right in my face. i mean right in my face, like 4 inches away from my nose. Spritely was trying to tell me something about her belly i am sure.....anyway, i finally noticed it was huge! so i started thinking OMG, she is bloating, maybe she is going to colic, she might die while i am at work tonight. so i phone the vet and beg a visit and he agrees to pop by later and look at her. i put her in her stall to wait for him and went back to work. i started thinking, gee...she actually looked pregnant, her belly looked like it had a big baby in there....nah...maybe? i called Mo to find out the gestation period for pregnant horses (11 months) and when they start showing (7 months) and count back to Spritely's arrival here (6 and a half months ago!) OM double G!! she could have been pregnant when she got here. i phone the vet back and tell him my theory and ask him to check her for that too. he came, and Jean was his assistant (she thought the internal exam was slightly gross) and Spritely is not pregnant and her belly is fine and my imagination is in over drive. just as long as my over active imagination does not get sick or give birth in the near future, i can easily accept being mistaken. whew.
