My mare aborted last year at almost 5 months. This year she has a mucusy discharge that is clear right now. Almost 2 weeks ago she had a yellow discharge. I called my vet and she didn't think coming out was too important. I am losing my mind. I don't want to lose another baby. I am very sad and worried. The vet is coming tomorrow to do her 90 day check. I will let everyone know whats up when I find out. Tomorrow isn't going to be fun I have a feeling....

Sorry to hear Tara, but keep your chin up. It may be ok.
Did the vet culture her after? I wonder about infection.

My mare came up open at her vet check. I am heartbroken but luckily I have other options. The stallion owners have graciously offered their Polish mare to me to lease. And my best friend offered any of her mares. I love my mare and really wanted a foal from her, but this heartbreak is getting old....

Bear in mind that at 90 days the fetus has usually tipped over the pelvic brim and into the abdomen of the mare, out of reach of the palpator. Consequently, if the preg check was performed looking specifically for fetal presence by palpation, it is still possible that the mare is pregnant.

If you have any doubts, perform an estrone sulfate test in a couple of weeks time (for example the WeeFoal test).

Jos, she palpated and ultrasounded her. There's nothing there. And she came back into heat. That's why I wasn't too suprised when I found out the baby was gone. The way I see it there are a lot of foals out there that need good homes too....

Doesn't make any difference if it's a palpation or an ultrasound at that stage, you often still can't reach the fetus. If however there was no sign of fluid per ultrasound that is more significant... :-(

Remember that mares that are pregnant may come into estrus as well - about 10% of them do...

She did with her last foal too. But this time she had her icky heat stuff coming out of her. And she was being lovey. Yeah, there was no fluid. I'm not happy. :-(
