My mare is 9 yrs old and has had 2 previous foals via pasture breeding and pasture foaling.
This year I had my mare bred June 18-26. She stood for the stallion for 7 days (bred 1 or 2 times day with a day's rest in between it all) and she never did stop standing, so ended up coming home. I have this deal with a friend so transport and stud fees are not being exchanged and I can re-breed as often as I need to.
So I had my mare sent back to the stallion on July 8 and from July 8, to July 14 she refused any advances from him. On the 15th she stood for him again but only that day and has not been bred since. She violently rejected him after that.
I have noticed the last couple of days she has a white milky discharge from her vulva. Since it has been weeks since she was bred, this is obviously nothing to do with the coital aspect. I am thinking infection? Or could she be back in heat? She is nowhere near a stallion so she does not typically show signs of heat. I did however notice her walking with her tail up a lot and standing kind of funny (legs stretched out behind her but not squatting as she does in heat) She also is irritated, has bitten me twice (never has done this before) and today she jumped her paddock fence which she has also never done before. She is more spooky than usual and more inclined to be belligerent Her behavior is much more different than I am used to and I am crossing my fingers that she is having pregnant mare syndrome as opposed to in heat.
I am running out of breeding time for the season and have no way to test my mare as she is a miniature and no vets will ultrasound her or palpate because of her size.
We tried a blood test and it is impossible as she turns into a rodeo horse. My vet gave up as all we did was wrestle my mare and got nowhere.
I am going to have the vet out regardless to check her over and make sure it isn't an infection, but as I write this the discharge has stopped. What would cause this discharge and what is your opinions on whether my mare is bred or not?

Without evaluation using ultrasound you are not going to have a reliable indicator of what condition your mare is in - i.e. pregnant or infected. If you have a uterine culture swab drawn for evaluation for infection/inflammation (which would be the correct procedure) and she is pregnant, you will abort the pregnancy.
