I personally would have her checked - we never had any bleed. Sounds like an indication that something might not be right - better to be safe than sorry, better to find out now, than when she is trying to foal. Also, if she is bleeding, you could have infection problems, which could mean no baby.

We will on occassion have a maiden mare show alittle blood the first breeding, I believe it is common and normall has not been a problem. The blood is normally in very small quanties and must not be introduced into the semen and far enough in as it has never interfered with conception. (Blood will kill off the sperm). We find it very common in maiden mares.

Yes blood is normal on 1st breeding on a maiden mare. But if you breed her again on her next heat cycle and she still bleeds she should be seen by the vet then.

So many questions here.
Was the stallion particularly large in comparison with her "girly bits"? Did she wriggle? Did he dismount awkwardly?
If there was only a little blood, he may have torn her just a little. We cover up to 200 mares a year and a few bleed for various reasons. If it's only a little, the vet usually advises to leave things to settle and may occaisionally put her on antibiotics and bute...in rare cases.
If there was a lot of blood, get the vet to have a look see.
Best of luck
