Some of you will recall last years attempt at breeding a mare that had an adheisan across her cervex, fluid, etc...
Anyway, Last weekend (10 days ago) I noticed she had a discharge and her tail was rather icky (that's how much of a discharge she had)..my first fleeting thought was that she was in season.
This past weekend (sunday) I noticed it was still going on and my thoughts turned to infection as she's had problems in the past.
So I have a call into my Vet to make an appointment.
Background:Last year when we first 'looked' she had fluid in her uterus that when cultured came back clean (I don't recall if we checked for bacteria and yeast or just bacteria)..but the problem came from the fact that her cervex wasn't opening allowing the fluid to drain. Anyway we got her cleaned out and she eventually managed to stay clean on her own but when finally bred, didn't take and was dirty once again.
So my thoughts were to start early this year getting her cleaned up (will be trying an ET)...but I did want to wait until after I foaled (I'm due to have a baby in Feb) so that I could concentrate on what she needed but figured I would start in March.
But, then this weekend, I figured if she has an infection, It would be best to start now or at least clean her up now.
But then I thought, wait, she had an adheisan across her cervex that last year the vet had to keep poking through.
So if she does have an infection, how is it getting out? I guess it's great that she's expelling it on her own, but it seems strange that her cervex is all of a sudden working on it's own again.
Or I suppose it could be a urinary tract infection, but I don't think that's where it's coming from.
I did smell it (ugh, us horse people) and there is no smell...although when we first 'drained' her last year, although yellow/grey icky..there was no smell then either.
Anyway it's going to take a few days for the Vet to make it out, but my brain is running in circles trying to figure out what's going on.
I have no patience right now
