How soon will a mare bag up after breeding? Is it not until they're ready to foal or will they swell slightly shortly after being bred(2 weeks)?

some of my mares swell in front of their bag due to seasons, being put on green grass etc. I have never seen one though swell that soon after breeding.

Most of our mares here start "bagging up" to foal about 3-4 weeks before they foal. but some are sneaky and just to it a day or two before

If you have been experiencing the same heat and humidity we have that may be the culprit. I haven't had it happen that I know of with my mares who aren't bred, but then again I'm not checking their udders! However, I do have a 3 yo (unbred) who sometimes carries fluid in front of her udder and have heard of people with mares who get swelling in the udder when the weather is hot and humid.

I am having the same problem with my mare! I had her bred June 4th but she had been showing some signs of being in heat course she has been in heat for almost the past month it seems. However, when I did chores this evening I noticed that she had been sweating today, it got up to 105 this afternoon and she looked as if she was bagged down. When I felt and kinda squeezed them, there was a stream of liquid that came out of both sides. I am glad to know that my mare isn't the only one that does that
