Greetings, and thanks for the question!
It certainly sounds as if you could be describing a pregnant mare! I have a few questions for you so that I might answer you more thoroughly. You mention 12 months and about ten this from when she was last bred? Had she been confirmed to be pregnant? Did she lose weight while you were gone? Has Ruby ever foaled before? Is it your concern that she was pregnant and that now she's not?
Thanks, ***** ***** looking forward to hearing from you.
