Hello everyone

I am looking for some advice about my miniature mare abi.

Abi is 11/12 and has had 5 previous foals, the last being born healthy June 1st 2011.

She was pasture bred on her foaling heat so will be approx 220 days.

Her colt was weaned at the end of November and her bag reduced in size quickly.

She is in a big barn with 3 other mares, bedded on barley straw and fed haylage ad lib and hard feed once a day at the moment as the paddock is full of mud and has no grass.

I noticed over the last week she has been passing urine frequently (maybe because I have just bedded up) her vulva seems continually wet...no discharge as such, just looks like clear fluid around it, and not just after peeing.

She is sprightly, active, hungry and has no fever.

I have been checking her thoroughly and
Over the last few days I have noticed that her bag seems to be increasing in size, not filling and nowhere near to the huge size it was in the run up to foaling last year (she started bagging up 6 - 8 wks before foaling)just more droopy.

Tonight when I went to check her, her bag seems the same but her vulva looks swollen, just like the run up to her foaling last year. On inspection, it is clean, wet, pink and 'winks' furiously when touched.

I plan to speak to my vet tomorrow (I am in the UK) but just wondered what your thoughts are?

I have never had her ultrasounded as she is only 33 inches, but wee foal was positive.

Hope I'm being over cautious (I have a tendency to fret!) and look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Hi all

Thought I would update

My vet said wait and see as no discharge and not dripping milk...we are a week on and udder is going down and vulva tightened up.

The only odd thing is that her pee is like banana milkshake (she pees routinely when i put fresh bedding in each day!).
