I have an older mare 18 that has had 8 foals. She is begining to bag up and not due until the end of April. She builds a medium bag while in her stall. Then with 12 hr's of turnout it comes down about 1/2 way. Wondering if this is a sign of a problem. She seems ok in every other way. Usually does not start to bag until 4 or 5 weeks to go until foaling date.

Not an issue...it's just natures' way of getting ready. Unless there's milk streaming out, I wouldn't worry.
