Could this be a problem? I have a mare that is due in 2 months. We have been finding her sweating for no reason. All she has been doing is just standing there. She still has her appitie and doesnt appear to be having any bowel problems. does this sound like problem should have a vet come out and check. just worried about her.

Perfectly normal both of my mares same gestational age do it themselves, just part of the process. Thes broodmares can make you crazy with worry sometimes. hang in there, she is in the home stretch!

Bill, I guess I wouldn't worry to much if everything else seems normal. I know that the temps around here are really wacky for this time of the year and would wonder what your weather situation is like, could it be the climate change ? If she is eating and doing everything else normal but if she starts to roll violently or acts in pain and refuses to eat or show any other sign then I guess i would consider calling a vet. We have raised many foals and never seen this in a mare. Is it normal ?? Just do remember that there is more fluid and blood in the mares body which does tend to keep them warmer.

I've seen this in a few mares. I wonder do they get hot flushes just like people?

Thats why I mentioned the extra fluid and blood in a pg mare. Just like humans, causes extra heat ?? Thats what I've been told for the warmth in a human. We are on the same track Lisa !
