hello my name is tonya and i have a similar problem. my mare is bleeding from her vaginal area and i wanted to kno what may be the problem. my grandmother thinks she may have lost her colt. but she only bleeds when she is lieing down. i was out to get her one day to take her to the grazing field. she was lieing down and she got up when i got to her. behind her there was a pool of blood and her legs and vaginal area was coverered in blood. It is also her FIRST foal. I need help. i cannot find anything info about this at all. we stalled her for awhile. please give me suggestions.

Yes call the vet. Some bleeding in small amounts is normal from blood vessels bursting as foal gets into position. But if there is that much a vet needs to look at her. I hope she will be ok. Keep us posted.

Tonya, no one's blaming you, hon. An adult has to be responsible for these things--it's not your fault. Ask your grandmother if she can find a different vet to check your mare--she needs to be seen by an equine vet to make sure she's okay. It's one thing if you lose the colt. You want to make sure you don't lose your mare, too! You were brave to ask for help here. If your grandmother doesn't know where to find an equine vet, maybe the vet you know now can help you find one. Otherwise, ask around to other people in your neighborhood who have horses. Best of luck to you, Tonya!

Tonya sweety I am much older than you and things happen that you sometimes just don't know what to do about. Please continue to keep us updated. My daughter is 11 and is in love with her little mare just as you sound to be with yours. I had to do a little shopping for a vet that I completely trusted with my mare also. Like doctors some are better than others. If all else fails you can just start calling vets out of your phone book, or you can ask wherever you buy feed. Around here those guys are really clued in on who is best to call. I know our vet recommends having a professional out to check them if there is more than a few drops as soon as possible. You did wonderful coming here. These ladies have been a tremendous help to me. My mare is having her fifth foal, but it's my first and I'm continually watching her. Everyone here thinks I'm nuts and advises me to let nature just take it's course, but sweety sometimes nature needs a hand no matter how vigilant we are. I will tell you something you should do as soon as you can. Can you run out and pull her lip out enough that you can see her gums? You are looking for them to be a nice healthy pink. If they are white looking you need to find a vet in your area as soon as possible. If money is an issue there are generally people around with horses that can offer good advice. My dealings with Star have led to a large circle of people very near me who are very familiar with horses. They can be very supportive and will often come to look over your mare at no cost and then recommend a good vet to help with what you are dealing with. Don't be discouraged. I know you love your girl and are doing the best you can. Let me know about the gums. I'm crossing my fingers for you. How far along is she?

her gums are very healthy and we found out the problem, at first we thought maybe it had been premature labor but then we caught our stallion in the act with another one of our pregnant mares and we thought that that would be the problem. the vet said that she is ok. thanks to you for all your help. she will be just fine.
thanks again to all of you.

That's great, Tonya. Is she still pregnant then? If so, when is she due?
