I have a 19 year old mare which I have had for almost 18 years. She has been bred 5 times before and had successful results however the last couple of times she did not. We thought she was bred and even bagged down but no baby. I decided to try to get one more colt out of her because I was told that she was probably too heavy to have stuck, however I had gotten alot of weight off of her and have excercised her to get her prepared one more time. She was bred with the stud for approximately 6 days and when it came time for her to start her cycle and was teased with the stud never started so I was able to bring her home. Now that I have her home I have noticed her having a little bit of white/yellowish discharge and when she acts like she has to urinate there is just little bit of squirts coming out. Is the discharge normal for a bred mare or is that a sign of her starting her cycle again or could she have an infection? I called the vet and he said that it was normal and to watch for either red or purpleish discharge. I am going to have a blood test done August 1st but the suspense is killing me. I try to watch to see if I can catch her urineating to see if she is winking but I think she gets stage fright. Anyone with advice???

Discharge in a pregnant mare is not normal. You may want to consult a different vet in the future for breeding-related matters if that is what he said.

There are a variety of possibilities ranging from an estrus (heat) related discharge to uterine infection discharge. You would be well advised to find a veterinarian that specialises in equine reproduction (preferably a certified theriogenologist) and have him evaluate the mare.

Note that many older mares can have problems with reproductive conformation that will reduce the chances of establishing and/or maintaining a pregnancy, and additionally many may have a condition called "delayed uterine clearance". The latter situation is very easily remedied in many cases with suitable oxytocin therapy. These older mares generally should be bred only once on the entire cycle for optimum pregnancy establishment, and that means they will need to be monitored for the correct breeding time. Turning the mare out with the stallion in cases where there is a severely affected mare can result in uterine infection (which is treatable, but which will prevent pregnancy establishment/maintenance).
