I need some help here. Out doing chores tonight & my mare who is/was about 2-3 months pregnant had something hanging out of her back end. I pulled it out and it looked like placenta. She also has a creamy looking discharge & has a darker color around her back end and hind legs. Does this sound like she had an abortion? Is it recommended to have he vet out to check it out? Thanks for anyone help in this matter.

Assuming it was hanging from the vagina, then yes, it sounds like she aborted.

The chances are that the abortion occured without any complications, but you might want to have a competent equine reproduction veterinarian check her out anyway just to be sure (and to confirm that it was a pregnancy loss).

Thanks Jos for your help. I guess she did the same thing once before prior to us buying her. Is there some sort of test that can be done to see why this is happening?

Probably a uterine biopsy would be the most useful. Be aware that you are probably going to encounter lay persons (and even some veterinarians) that might suggest running a progesterone assay and supplementing with a progestin, but be cautious and be educated about so-called "low progesterone mares" - take a look at the article on our site on Regumate use to understand more about that (follow that link).
