Hi I have a mare that had a foal 2 years ago. I was wanting to know if it would still be possible if my mare could have bag still. I have the 2 year colt in with her along with another mare. I weaned the colt at 7 months but, I think he and the other mare are nursing on her still. Is this possible. Could it also be possible that she is peg. again. I'm not sure but I think she was with a stallion. Not sure because I had her broaded for two months during breeding season.

If anyone can help me it would be helpful. Thanks!

Well Dee, if she was with a stallion it is possible that she is pg, as well as being with her two year old colt if he has not been casterated.

She could be still nursing-even though you say you weaned them(how soon did you return the foal?).
She could be a mare that will bag easily if the conditions are right(spring grass, good nutrition, wanting a foal)


Many vairables seem to be here.

The colt was casterated at nine months of age and I didn't put him back in with his mom until about three months after I weaned him. Should I be worried about anything.

Dee it could me mastitis, does the bag feel hot?
She could also be pregnant if she was with a stud, you could have some very big babies or like Kim said it could just be a funky seasonal thing. If it's two out of the four things she probably deserves a check up. If you can't have a vet out to check her, put her somewhere by herself. If the other horses have been nursing on her, her bag will probably swell up and leak white milk with two full size horses sucking on her she should be making quite a bit of milk. If she is just bagging up like some mares due(I have one of those mares) the bag will probably be uneven and be almost normal body temperature and you probably won't get much liquid out of it if you try. Here's where it get's tricky. If she is in foal there should be a different color of liquid in the bag as she gets closer to foaling but probably clear or yellowish liquid and it will be sticky but not stinky. The same sort of thick white or yellowish liquid, but that stinks to high heaven is probably mastitis.

Her bag is not hot but, if you try to milk her you do get some milk from her. Her milk is between clear and white, like a kind of cloudish color but, its not yellowish. Her milk is not real sticky but, you know when you have milk in your hand. Her milk doesn't stink either. If she is peg. this would be her second foal. The first time though she didn't even look peg. expect for that she waxed 5 hours before she had her foal. She didn't even get big or "v'ed" in the stomach the first time.

Wel Dee,
I would still say that your mare is pregnant. Like Megan said that u should put her somewhere else by herself so that they don't keepe nursing off of her. How long was she pregnant?
If you have anymore questions you can just e-mail me at sparkly_56spark@hotmail.com or go on my website at www.freewebs.com/dressage16/

I don't know how long she was preg. becuase I bought her from a person that had her with a stallion. He didn't even know that she was preg. either. around 8 months after we had her she gave birth.
