My Arabian mare was bred to an Arabian stallion about a month and a half ago today I noticed drops of milk coming from her teats. What does this mean? Information will be greatly appreciated!

Maureen- Some mares will do this. It can be considered normal for some mares. I have a mare that will make a bag and drip during her heat cycle. If there is another horse present to tease her, it is worse.

I would be aware of this, and check her periodically to make sure that it is not hot and hard. If you detect heat and it feels increasingly harder, call your vet. Mastitis could occur and would need immediate care.

My friend has a mare that foaled about 2 months ago, a healthy rambunctuous colt. She has developed mastitis and is under vet care to treat. How dangerous is this and what can be expected in her recovery. Vet has separated the colt from the dam for 7 days and wants the mare milked twice a day to keep her from drying up. How bad is it for the colt to nurse her infected side and should the colt recieve milk replacement for the week of dam's recovery. I know very little about horses and would appreciate any information. Thanks

Robyn, mastitis is a serious infection that needs to be treated immediately. It sounds like the vet has it under control and the mare should recover just fine. I hope your friend follows the vets directions completely. The colt SHOULD NOT consume any of the milk until the vet has given it the o.k. I'm sure the vet has recommended a milk replacer for the colt. Tell your friend to be careful while milking the mare. Mastitis is very painful to the mare and it is sometimes quite difficult to manipulate the teats for milking and/or treatment. Application of hot water will ease the pain and help make milking easier if having trouble. Mastitis is considered a rare condition that is sometimes confused with the swelling and pain that occures when a foal is ill and not sucking or with the natural swelling that follows weaning. Go to "the articles" on this sites home page and type Mastitis in the search, maybe there is more information there.

i have never had a mare that has had mastitis so i don't know what it looks like. but i have a mare that is due to foal in 3 weeks and her bag is really hard and when you push on it, it leaves a indent. it is not holding heat but it is really hard. is this mastitis?

Leigh that sounds more like edema. It kind of feels like memory foam. Usually they get it infront of the udder along the belly. That could be what it is. And if it gets very large sometimes exercises helps.

*memory foam*..........fabulous description Kassie!!!
Leigh Ann, also, mastitis is typically very painful to the animal. She may have pus-like discharge (nasty), and very resentful to touch. Normally will have heat, mares may also run a fever with mastitis.
If your mare isn't to irritated by you touching it, I'd bet that it's just like Kassie mentioned...:-) memory foam!!! (i.e. edema) :-).

I had a mare come to my ranch that had a foal last year, while breeding her observed what was thought to be mastitis, but with a culture it was found to be Bastard Strangles. She is cleared up now with no apparent damage to her udder and bred back to my mammoth jack for a 2007 baby www.djbarranch.com
