Intestinal prolapse can occur after birth in mares. It also rarely occurs in humans and in more often cases in cows and sheep. The horse can survive it if it is given medical attention immediately! Every instrument used must be ensured that it is clean otherwise serious infection can occur.
Intestinal prolapse would not occur unless there were an opening in one of the body (abdominal) walls.
Uterine prolapse on the other hand could occur. It is rare in the equine - unlike some other species such as sheep for example - and still carries only about a 50% resolution rate even if correctly treated in the equine.
