I am assuming that post-coitus discharge (including what looks like most of the semen) is normal in mares to flush out contaminates after breeding. Every mare that my stallion has bred has done this after breeding and we are still getting an 84% conception rate. Any comments?

When do they do it? When he withdraws or a few minutes later? My four year old stud bred his first mare this week and the first two successful covers had a similar thing occur.

The first time, it looked like she squirted urine(like they do when they show heat) right as he withdrew. The second time, it looked like alot of sperm poured out when he withdrew. Right now I don't have a way to test his ejaculate, so I guess we won't know for another 18 days.

yes, right after breeding, regardless of our walking the mare, or pasture breeding---it always happens. I really think it must be a natural way of cleansing the uterus. Yes, it looks like urine and sperm mixed.

It usually happens within seconds of him withdrawing. Just wanted to know others thoughts on this.

You are almost certainly seeing the loss of secondary sex gland secretions - typically gel fraction - of the ejaculate. Stallions when breeding mares penetrate into and in some cases even through the cervix into the uterus, and semen is ejaculated at high pressure. The end result is that the sperm-rich fraction (the first three ejaculatory spurts or so) will (or should) end up in the uterus almost immediately. The latter portions of the ejaculate include this gel fraction, which is a little like egg white in consistency, and - as with egg white - if a little of it is pulled back out with the penis upon withdrawal, the rest of the "glob" (a good technical term there! :-)) will end up being pulled out with it and be deposited on the ground. Sperm numbers lost in the gel fraction in this manner will be minimal.

Post-breeding uterine inflammatory response is not significant enough to produce discharge until typically 8-16 hours after breeding, and is manifested by the presence of pus discharge from the vagina/labia.
