There is a yucky, (sorry-best term I can think of) thick brown substance inbetween my mares teats. I hate to admit this, but although I've had her almost a month I had never inspected her bag, other than just a quick peek. Therefore, I don't know how long it has been there.

She definetely does not want me touching it. It is too cold to bath her this week. I want to try and wash it off with maybe a damp cloth, since she probably won't let me soap it up and rinse well.

Has anyone else had anything like this? And can you recommend something besides water, that doesn't need rinsing, to clean with? It looks like it would be sore to me, but I don't know.

I'm thinking it might be just old mud and dirt. I will definetley get it cleaned up within a few days I hope. I may have to do it in stages. Anyway, are there any thoughts on the subject?

Cheryl, that is very normal and most mares do need to be routinely cleaned just like cleaning a male's sheath. I would either just use plain warm water or Nolvasan diluted in water. Nothing to worry about though :-)

Thanks Tracy. It looks like it would be darn uncomfortable. I asked my daughter if she remembered her mare having it and I was surprised that she had! So my mind is at ease now. Thanks so much.
