Hi, I have a maiden mare that is at 261days... She started bagging up a small amount last Night and bit more this morning! There are no signs of milk or discharge, have spoken to vets and they said to hold tight over the weekend to see whether it regress's as it could just be her body getting used to the new changes. The last couple of days she seems to have just blossomed... Any previous experiences of this?? Obviously my main concern is placentitis :-/

now having had experience of Placentitis i would get a vet out straight way if it is the earlier they catch it be better chance the foal has of not being aborted. make sure he scans internal and external.

I, as well, would be on top of this right away and get things investigated for possible placentitis. It's a bit early to be bagging up, although certainly some mares can start to bag up 6 weeks before foaling and still foal out normally. Also some mares can and do foal before 320 days, but it's not really the ideal. I'd be a wee bit worried that things are not quite right, so I would rather have the vet ultrasound and check things out and even start on SMZ and anti-inflammatories just to be safe. Always better safe than sorry.

If her bag is tight and full already this soon before foaling is much more worrisome than a mare who is just starting to develop some udder.

Just my 2 cents. Good luck!
