I apologize in advance if this takes awhile to describe because it was unlike anything I've seen in horses. My mare, Tori, was bred more than 30 days after she delivered her very first foal. She did not come into a noticeable foal heat. The morning after the last day she was bred Tori was showing symptoms of a steady dull but painful cramping (like you would see in sand compaction colic) where she had not completely lost her appetite and her vital signs and temperature was normal. She also had normal gut sounds and was making manure.

She would get up and then lay down even when being walked. She wouldn't roll violently but would park out and then every 30 seconds or less she would lay flat out her eyes tearing and would half roll with skin crawling and shimmy on the ground occasionally getting herself into strange positions (on her back). If she were human I could imagine her in a fetal position gripping her stomach.

Thankfully, within 3 hours she was better, and was fine by evening. Has anyone ever seen anything like this before? Could it have anything to do with ovulation? I have known of mares to go badly lame when they are in heat. Could this pain be related at all to ovulation? The 2001 breeding was completely uneventful, she was a healthy maiden and very fit. TIA, Tab

I know this may be really off topic but with some experience with a horse with ulcers, who shows symptoms like colic, but one very interesting one in which he is lying on his back with his feet stuck up the air, vet said that it sounded like ulcers as this is a very unusual position for a horse.
I would talk to your vet and watch for any other signs, new research a has shown that 90% of all horses sometime in there life will have a ulcer attack but are treated for colic.
If you want more info you can email me privately at carlasreid@yahoo.ca
