hi I have a miniature maiden mare. a week ago she started a discharge. Called vet and said just to keep on eye on her. two days later she started discharging again, had vet out to look at her, everything said to be OK. but that she well most likely foal early. as of 4 days ago she pasted her mucus plug and has been trucking right along. for 2 days she had me up with the signs of labor. (the bagging up and testing a fast 4-5 etc...) then just as fast as she started she STOPPED. she isnt getting bagged up anymore and NO milk at all. but she has been haven the false labor (lying down and side and pushing) she has done this for the last two night. the vet said that she may do this for 3 or 4 night til she has the foal. Im just worried that all this pushing isnt hurting her and the baby... I mean stressing them out. today she is kicking her belly, rolling and pushing a couple of times today. but still no milk in udders. and they arent getting any bigger either,,, should I be worried about all of this.. she has been sleeping alot today though.. I think maybe she may foal tonight at 305 days along...
ANY IDEAS....

Theresa,
Well was it time? Do you have a new addition to your family??
I had a mini maiden mare foaled for me last year, and she did a very similar thing. She had me sleeping in the barn several times for about a month before she foaled. She would have false labour episodes, then sweat just standing still even though it was cold. She would nest and paw at the ground and so many times i thought "this was it", and all the whole time, she never had any milk at all. So i kept a milk supplement on hand and had milked some coloustrum from one of my other mares. Well, when she finally did go, it was unmistakable, and so very quick! I went to the barn a 7.30am to feed and clean out stables, and she had produced a rock hard udder overnight, i kept a close eye on her, and she pased her stall heaps, then ate, then pased. By midday she was sweating, by 1pm she was contracting and by 1.15pm we had a brand new baby colt! I was lucky, as she had him in the daylight hours for me (even after all those sleepless nights in the barn).
My suggestion is to keep a bottle, several different teats (as the foal will let you know if he isnt happy with one) and colustrum on hand just in case. but with maiden mares, having no udder, and false labours is fairly typical, and she just needs to be watched.
Let me know how you go...

thanks for the information.. No she hasn't had the foal yet and today she is at 306 days. I did get a few drops of milk out of her today and was able to test, she tested a fast 4. I know where I can get milk supplement but I don't know how to handle the coloustrum problem...but Yes I am keeping a very close eye on her. I am watching her 24/7 my son and I have been swinging the watch..well thanks for the post and Ill keep you guys informed...

Take a look at the article on this site that asks is my mare overdue? It may prove of interest to you... :-)
