I have a mare that is now 22 days pregnant. She was confirmed in foal by ultrasound at 17 days. The vet did say the baby was in a wierd location and would have missed it completely had he not looked harder because of feeling her increased uterine tone. Today we found some blood and clots(??) in her pasture. She is the only one in the pasture. The best way I can describe it is that it looks like the clots or endometrial lining a woman passes during her menstrual cycle. At only 24 days pregnant would she even pass this?? I would think it would just be reabsorbed. She has no blood anywhere on her, nothing from her vulva (no discharge whatsoever or crustys), nothing on legs or tail, that I could see. She is acting completely normal. Maybe its from another type of animal who wandered into her pasture?? Any thoughts or suggestions would be great! I have saved what I could and put it in water for the vet to see on monday. Thanks!!
While there is no such thing as "reabsorbing" (any tissue associated with pregnancy loss is ejected through the cervix to the outside world), at 24 days, the amount of tissue is so small that it would be highly unlikely that anything would be found.
Never say never, but I would highly doubt it... you'll know Monday when you have her preg. checked again!
