I am looking after a pregnant mare quarter horse while the owner is away and I have come to the conclusion that she might've lost her foal. She has shown no signs of distress, but she still looks large and I noticed what appeared to be dried blood or possibly contents of the birth sack on her vulva. I have pics of her, here...Not to be gross, but the last pic is a pic of her vulva..

She had no problems before the pregnancy that I am aware of and her owner said she never has had a problem foaling. I just don't know what to do and I feel so bad about the whole thing. I don't know what became of the foal as the owner told me to keep her out in pasture to foal and it's so huge, I'd never find the baby:-( Is there the slightest chance that she hasn't foaled, yet? She was due any time.

If she is about to foal, you should be checking her more often than morning and night. Every hour - preferably day and night, but definitely through the night - is recommended if you are not on constant watch. Although most foalings go ahead with no problem, if there is a problem it can be a major one with attention required in a matter of minutes.

She had the foal this morning and it's a boy He's still a bit wobbly, but he's got spunk and had no problems getting his first meal from mom. Thanks for all your help, everybody!

Be sure to check IgG levels for good passive transfer, and dip the navel with 0.5% Chlorhexidine several ties a day for the next few days (until it dries up by itself).
