I have a miniature donkey that foaled on Sunday May 7, 2006. I just want to make sure this is normal for this is my first foal born ever.
I noticed the first day that she had some discharge and that when she ran that she was swelled her labia seperated a little. The foal is 3 days old now and mom has discharge coming from her vagina still, it's kind of clear with a little blood, not real thick, but sticky looking. Is this normal? How long should I expect this to go on. When she turns to scratch herself or is running after baby I notice she drips more. Please help, can't get a hold of the vet and am concerned about this. What color should the discharge be? How thick should it be (like water or more like mucus)?
Thanks much from a new worried first time foaler,
Debra

Debra: First of all, congrats on the new baby... Some discharge for the first 5-7 days is normal "cleansing". The consistency can differ but if its not red/brown blood, or profuse, it is probably quite normal. Has a vet checked her since the birth? If so, was the placenta examined? The main post-partum concern is that the placenta is intact but she would probably be showing other more serious signs if there was retained placenta pieces. She would actually be very ill. If she is otherwise healthy (eating, active, nursing, urinating, etc.) my guess would be its just the cleansing. Good luck!
