I have a maiden 'due' May 3rd (340 days) I have been checking her for a week or so, just because she is maiden, and I am nervous about this onw since she is my riding horse. Well, this morning her bag looked a 'little' fuller, and I was able to get a 'tiny' bit of clear fluid out. Called the vet, waiting on return call now, but in speaking with his tech, she said maidens can do this---I guess my question is, does this seem early, even for a maiden? No discharge, no fever. Thanks for any info, while I'm waiting on the vet to call back....

there are many different signs a mare can show, and many that start to develop weeks ahead of time. Read through many of the posts here and you will see it ! 320-370 is considered normal gestation for a foal, anything less than 320 can be a threat to the foal and beyound 370 can happen from time to time.

You have said the you started to check her the past week, ??, do you know that these things weren't present before hand? She will start to develop a udder some sooner than later, she may have a fluid that can be expressed a bit, happens in most species that lactate, some more than others-her hormones are stregthening more as time closens.
good luck
Kim

Kim--Thank you!
This udder development is a change from last week. Now she is fuller, and a bit 'harder'---honestly, I think over the past 2 days this development has occurred. Everything else about this pregnancy seems 'normal' so far.
She is maiden, so I have no history to go on, so I'm a bit nervous about that...
I guess I am worried about placentitis, and if there is a problem, maybe I can catch it early....
Thanks again for your help, and I have been reading everything on this forum for the last 3 hours!!

Susan,
My maiden mare also started developing a bag at 290 days this year. She is at 300 days today and since the first development of her udder, nothing has really changed so far. If I had to guess to tell you what it looks like, it looks like it is about 1/4 the size it should be when full. It seemed to develop into that size within a few days time, but it hasn't progressed any more.
I honestly wouldn't worry about a mare starting to make an udder at 290 days. Most of my mares have started making bag approx. 36-40 days prior to foaling. So I would say that making bag at 290 just means she should foal right around the 340 day mark
