I bought a mare 1 year and 1 week ago. I noticed yesterday she has a clear, yellow tinged, sticky liquid dripping from her udder. She is not bagged up but more filled than usual. She has not been with a stallion since I have had her (at least without my knowledge!) I was not told she was bred. A couple months ago she started developing large lumps on her upper sides that I thought were some kind of strange fat pads due to the new grass. She is plump without being huge or fat. She is in 10 yrs. old and in good health although in retospect she has had a change in personality- little ouchy around her sides and grouchy with the other horses. Surely she could not be pregnant for over 1 year?? What would cause the lumpy sides and discharge? Would ovarian cysts or a hormonal imbablnce do this? Any advice would be appreciated. I plan on calling my vet tomorrow and running this all past him but would love your imput. thanks.

Sue, I hope you had the vet come out and check your mare, let us know whats up. It is quite possible that she is PG since up to 370 days is considered "normal gestation". I am concerned as to what you call "lumpy sides". I don't believe an ovarian cyst or hormonal imbalance would cause this. It is a remote possibility that a cyst or hormonal imbalance could cause these other "in foal" symtoms but I doubt it. If she is not in foal there could be other complications and it should be checked out.

Please have your vet come out and check your mare as soon as possible. It would be the prudent thing to do if she is in foal (overdue) or not. Fescue grass toxicosis can cause a mare to be overdue. It also causes problems with late milk production, but not always. Discuss this with your vet.
