I have a mare who has not been with her foal for 14 months, and she is with no other foals or anyone nursing from her, yet she still has quite a bag and has fluid that is skim milk consistancy an look that is easily expressed...
(she is a 6 yr old QH who has had one foal, has had NO exposure to a stallion and gets 1 cup of seniorglo (ADM) feed 1X daily... its only so she doesnt feel bad when the young horses get fed... and 24 hour grass hay she is plump...ok fat, would probably go an 7 1/2 to 8 on the body scale http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e222/krismoos/100_2519.jpg
all last summer and into fall she only was on pasture, no grain or anything, yet she hasnt dried up, it is about hte same as it was 2 weeks after she weaned the foal(who is 2 1/2 hours away so its not like he is here to cause it)

why is that? How can I get her to dry up?
any advice greatly appreciated!!! :-)
thanks guys!

Kris I kinda have the same problem. Did you ever find out anything?
I have a 14 yo AQHA mare that last foaled 8/06. I bought her in 1/06 bred. I donít know a lot about this mare, other than she as been used as a broodmare only. She has had 5 foals. As I was saying she foaled in 8/06 and I weaned the colt @ 5 months. I sold him at 7 months. I was going to breed her last year but could never catch her in heat. She was in a pen not more than 20 feet from the stud for 2 months. (June & July) I finely gave up and brought her home planning on trying again this year. I saw her in heat last month. (showing to my gelding) but the funny thing is she still has fluid in her bag and her last foal has been off the place for a year now. Here is a pic from yesterday. I can still get clear fluid from it. I donít think this mare has had a lot of love and care before, and she has had quite a few owners. She didnít even like to be brushed when I got her, after a little TLC look out now if I walk out with a brush in my hand she will chase the rest of the horses off to be 1st in line.
