My mare is 7 mnths pregnant. I was wondering if she aborted her foal if i would see the aborted foal. the reason I am asking this is cuz I was wondering if I would know if she aborted. the foal should be big enough to see if she aborted it. Hopefully she wont! Her pregnancys doing great so far! Keeping my fingers crossed!

Yes, you'd definately be able to see if she aborted from this point on. You would find a hairless little foal. The size would depend on her breed, but in a large horse, it would be about the size of a small dog.
Here's hoping you don't get to see it though!
Best of luck!

I have a 20 yr old quarter horse mare who is around 90 days pregnant. However, yesterday i noticed that she was walking around with her tail up and she seemed to be urinating a white/milky looking liquid. I have a feeling that she aborted her fetus, but I don't know what to do.

While it is still probably worth while having the mare checked by your veterinarian so that you know for sure if she is still pregnant or not, it is quite likely that what you are seeing is perfectly normal and that the mare is still pregnant.

Around this point of pregnancy, a group of hormones - the estrogens - become elevated as the fetus starts to produce them, and a common side-effect is that the mare displays estrus.

If you do have your mare checked by your vet, it is important that you know that also around this time frame, the fetus may drop over the pelvic brim into the abdominal cavity as a result of size/weight increase, and may not be palpable again until about 150+ days - this can lead to an erroneous diagnosis of "not pregnant".

An estrone sulfate or total estrogen blood assay of the mare will become a valuable and accurate tool for pregnancy status determination in about 10 days (at 100+ days), so a good plan is to have your vet come out then, palpate/ultrasound, and if a definitive diagnosis of "pregnant" is not obtained at that point, draw blood for the hormone assay.
