Hi all,

We have a mare who is due to foal in April 2007. On Christmas Day we noticed some blood in her bed but nothing else. She was eating normally etc.

Today we noticed some more blood in her bed, not a lot.

We phoned our vet who told us not to worry about it that they have come across mares like this before.

This mare has given us three previous foals without incident.

Any ideas as I dont want to lose this foal and am worried that she may be aborting???

The most likely cause is a vaginal varicose vein. If you do a search for the term "varicose" on this board (follow that link to the search engine and remove the "inverted commas" from the term), you will find quite a bit of prior discussion.

Just experienced the same problem also with a mare that is due in April and this mare was diagnosed as having a bleeding varicose vein, essentially harmless to the pregnancy. It is interesting as this mare was passing significant amounts of red blood whereas "Jane" had a very small amount of darker blood (she was diagnosed with placental seperation). Hopefully there will be *no more* pregnancy drama - for anyone! Good Luck and Happy New Year Everyone!}
