I have a TWH mare that foaled on 4/14/09. Foal healthy and mom seems fine. Last night she started passed small amount of dark blood - about 1/4 cup. None during night and it appears this morning that some more has been passed. Foal is nursing and 3 days old. Any thoughts? I have a call into our vet right now.

A little bleeding post foaling is normal and they can pass it for a few days afterwards. The fact that it is dark is a good sign and it sounds like it's old clotted blood not new stuff. Has she been out rolling around and moving about or in a stable since foaling? The more she moves about the quicker she will clear out the gunk. Is her temperature ok? You can also check her capillary refill time, her gums should be nice and pink and not too pale. If you press with your finger on her gum it should turn pale and then refill with blood and turn pink again.
