mare developed bag at 26 days

Sometimes the pregnancy doesn't go as expected and the foal is lost. Here you can share information and perhaps learn why it happened and/or how to prevent a reocurrence.

mare developed bag at 26 days

Postby katehanson » Tue Jul 10, 2012 11:39 pm

Hi there,
I have a five year old Clydesdale mare who was inseminated 26 days ago. This will be her second foal. I have been out of town and haven't had her preg checked yet, but when I came home the other day she had developed a bag mostly on one side. I milked her and she did have milk and also a bit of thicker yellow fluid, more like it had been sitting a bit, but not mastitus. There was no heat although a bit firm. I cleaned her out till she just showed milk. When I checked her today her bag was empty.
I know in mid pregnancy, a mare bagging up is a sign of possibly losing the foal. My question is could her bagging up this early be a sign of her losing the foal or could it be her hormones saying yep I'm prego?
I've been breeding mares for 30 yrs and don't remember ever having a mare bag up so early (maybe I'm just getting old and can't remember!). I am going to ultrasound her, but need to bring her up from the meadow she's in so it will be a few more days before I can get her back up to the house.
Thanks a bunch!
Kate

In order to determine the cause, you will have to have her evaluated.

While it is possibly a response to pregnancy hormones, this is most likely at the lesser end of the probability spectrum. Something estrogenic in her pasture (clover?) is a possibility, as is simply being fat (if she is). Uterine infection is also another (again lesser likely) possible cause.

Let us know what you find!
