Maybe I'm just being over-cautious?

OK, fingers crossed I'm just a nervous first time "mom"

This is my first try at breeding a mare. The mare is a 8y/o canadian paint X mare, and so far, have had no problems with her. We covered her in the spring and she caught first try. She's always been otherwise healthy, and the vet was optimistic for an easy pregnancy with this girl. She was confirmed in foal at 14 days, and then shipped back home. This week, I shipped her out to be re-checked before buying her 5,7 and 9mo vaccines (just to be extra sure)and was again, confirmed in foal (a few weeks shy of 5mo)

My concern is this:
the mare came home and developed a runny nose the next day. Then, so did the gelding she's turned out with, then two other horses on the farm developed the same runny nose, and a slight cough. Noticing this, I saw the pregnant mare started walking around with her tail slightly elevated. Not winking or showing signs of heat or discomfort, just slightly elevated. I looked under the tail and there was a TINY bit of brownish colored discharge on her vulva. Its possible it was manure maybe... but concerned it might have been something else? also, her udder is not filled, but is bigger than her non-pregnant udder for sure (just the ends of the teats are bigger, no bagging up at all, still a completely empty udder)

I am concerned about a possible rhino outbreak? the farm she came from was the breeding farm, and has other healthy, still pregnant broodmares... if my mare DID pick something up there, wouldn't the other mares be affected also?

Is this just my first time jitters over re-acting?
