Okay, I took my mare to my vets today because she was bagging up and leaking a redish discharge. I was figuring she was going into heat again, but the color of the discharge was worring me.

Vet ultrasounded her and said she is preggers, but could not find a heart beat, although she swears it moved and was not the mare.

Vet checked her out and said the discharge is coming from her cervix and that it looks like she is wanting to abort the baby.

As this is a mare I have been trying to get preggers for a few years now (she was my first horse and my baby) I am tying all I can to get her to keep the foal if able.

I have her on regumate now and an anitibiotic untill all the blood work and swabs come back to let me know more on whats going on, I am just wondering if anyone has ever had a mare keep her foal after trying to abort when on proper meds. I know I'm grasping on straws but any good news right now would be lovely.

Oh guess I should say she's almost 4 months along. Just on the edge of 4 months.

My vet told me she'd know her chances better on wensday when some of the blood work and swabs come back. I have been checking her pen morning and night had have so far not seen anything but she's in sugar sand and I could have missed it. Although my mare is grey (white) so my vet said her tail would be a mess and I'd probably know.

She seems to have stopped leaking the brown discharge and she's not bagged up anymore so hopefully she's holding.

Baraaks Storm is actually this mares reg name. lol

Have you ever had something like this happen with good news?

The only time anything like this ever happened to me ....I rushed the vet out in a PANIC, and found out the mare was never bred that year! LOL She was like, "how far along is she supposed to be?" and I'm like, "7 months!" and she just laughed....she said, "there's a 36mm breedable follicle here..."

Baraaks how is your mare? Sending good vibes. I hope it is not hopeless. Maybe the discharge and bagging up stopping is a good sign?

I hope so. Mariah was my frist horse, I got her when I was 9 and she was 5 and she's 17 going on 18 now. If she ever does foal, that baby is never going anywhere.

She seems fine right now, She's still pushy to my stud and eats like she's starving so I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed.

Well, Mariah's foal had died, so the vet cleaned her out and she's on meds to be on the safe side. Good news is that all blood and hormone levels came back clear and the culture came back clear as well so I have the clear next year after another culture. Keeping fingers crossed for next year on this mare.

Baraaks, I am so sorry you didn't get a baby from this mare that you love so much. Glad the mare came through fine. Hope we hear from you next year, that you have a healthy foal

My only advice is to be sure to have a good relationship with a vet who knows about equine reproduction, especially since your mare is in the older category (mine too). In other words, get her all checked out before breeding her. Then you should have little to worry about.

Sounds like you may already have a good vet. I'm just saying, older mares have issues that a younger mare doesn't normally have.

Anyway, I wish you the best and can't wait to hear when your beloved mare is in foal!
