I just foaled out one of my mini mares. Textbook delivery & no problems. Foal healthy & strong, up & nursing within 15 minutes. Placenta passed normally within 1/2 hour.
My question is.....the placenta has several small "tags" of skin attached to the smooth side of the placenta. They range in size from 1/4" up to 2 1/2" and seem to have some bloody tissue in the ends of them. Other than this...the placenta looked normal. I've never seen this in all my 20 years of foaling out mini mares...and wondered if anyone else know what these are, or what causes them?

My mare had something similar, but they were filled with a yellow fluid. They looked just like tiny bladders. The vet didn't really explain it, but thought it was okay. The placenta was all in one piece. Interesting, huh?

Hello, I am new to the forums but, I think I know what those "tags" are! According to the book Breeding Management & Foal Development written by the staff at Equine Research Inc these tags are an invagination that is formed in the wall of the allantoic cavity by a sloughed endometrial cup which is sometimes found in the placental membranes at birth. The "tags" are called an allantochorionic pouch. I just wanted to let you know because I am reading the book from cover to cover for my mares foaling. Cheers!
