Hello. My mare is 100 days preganant and I just weaned her on Sunday from her 4 month old foal.I have kept her in with only hay in water for 5 days as she can get mastitis. I take her out for walks and she is turned out in the arena for some play time. All is going well and she is drying up perfectly, but I noticed the last 2 days she has a milky white discharge coming from her vulva. I am a known over reactor and my vet is a saint, I have told him about this and he will come over at the drop of a hat, but the husband says no. My vet did say to watch it and if I'm not happy he'll come to have a look. My husband thinks we don't need the vet ever and I tend to think if you haven't gone to vet school and something doesn't look right, get him out! Anyway, does anyone have any advice on what I should do or any experience with this situation. I will also say she is not sewn up, has never been for her first two foals, and has very good conformation and doesn't suck wind.
Thanks
Terri

I would be concerned. Discharge is never normal in pregnancy. My mare last year had a discharge and we called the vet, were told she was still pregnant. That was in Aug. 2004. March 2005 she was declared open. That was the only discharge she showed (her foal was due May 2005).
Was your mare bred in an early foal heat?

No she was bred on the 30 day cycle. She had all her swabs at 7 days after birth and has been text book since. I weaned at 4 months as the colt is very large and was giving her a hard time. She seemed to be dropping in condition which she didn't do last year, but I thought the colt might be taking a lot out of her so I weaned. I'd say I'll get my vet on Monday. Any ideas what it could be?
thanks
