I have a mare who has started bleeding from her vulva. I cleaned her up to be sure it wasn't a puncture/cut/scrape around her vulva or rectum, and it does seem that is is coming from inside her vulva.

She came in heat on April 25th, the vet cultured, ultrasounded and did a speculum exam. She went out of heat on May 2nd, and I was planning to short cycle her tomorrow. But now, 6 days after her last day of heat she is bleeding? I'm not sure what to think, and I don't see any evidence of trauma.

Thoughts?

I have seen mares back up to a tree to scratch their butts, and manage to get a sharp piece of a branch into their vagina, where it scores a groove on the vaginal wall. Not saying that is what this is (it could also be a varicous vein leaking for example), but if the bleeding is significant, it may be best to either use a disposable speculum yourself to look inside the vagina, or if you are not comfortable doing that have your vet have a look at it.

Thanks Jos!!! It isn't dripping so fast that I can see it when I part her vulva, but if I hold it for a bit I do see it accumulate into a "drop" and then it drips onto her legs, between her legs, etc. If it hasn't stopped by tonight when I bring her in I will do a more thorough exam. Just freaked me out to see it after she has been out of heat for so long. I assume any misstakes or damage possibly caused on the 25th vet visit would have shown up by now.
