I recently aquired a mare that is in her teens that drips fluid from her teats when in season. I have never seen this before. Her udder always looks somewhat swollen. She has had two foals in the past. Is this mare having some hormonal issues? Has any one had this problem before? Should I be concerned?

my guess would be that there is a hormone inbalance and things could be a slight bit out of wack.... that is my guess only, you may want to question your vet especially if y ou plan on rebreeding her. It would be better to get the hormones back in line before trying to breed her and the expense of it at that given time. Or there may be a bigger under lieing issue.

We did do a thyroid on the mare and it was fine but also heard that this may be a sign of Cushings. I know the thyroid test are not real reliable. I will contact a repo. specialist on the matter but was hoping someone on the board may have experienced it before and was willing to share their thoughts on the matter before getting into some expensive testing.

Hi, I bought a OPEN mare at auction last year. Whenever she got nervous, or was palped or ultrasounded...she would drip milk. Sometimes she would even drip milk when our other mares were being palped etc. Sounds strange...but true! We bred her AI and she settled first try. She has had many foals...so I just think she is one of those mares that never completly drys up. Maybe your mare is the same. Goodluck

I have a 25 yo Morgan mare whose last foal is 4 yo(and just had her own foal Sunday night)and she still has a semi-full udder that you can easily express fluid from. I think it does seem to get bigger when she's in heat come to think of it.
