My mare is 323 days along and visibly pregant. She started making her bag about 2.5 weeks ago, but is taking her time on this. Tonite, bag is the same, some very subtle softening beside the tail head. Inside vulva is darker.. and there is a bit of yellow "stuff" that looks like chalky sediment. No odor, and it does not look like mucus. Total volume not even 1/4 teaspoon, and it was where gravity would put it. No sign of more externally, it was all right there at the outer edge. Almost as if it was sediment in her urine?

Just wondering if anyone knows what this could be? It does not look like infection, though that's what I think of when I see yellow.

I will see the vet tomorrow (castrating a colt) and ask her. And of course check again in the morning to see if there's more.

Update: So this morning, I go back to her stall, sterile telfa pad in hand, with intent to wipe some of that yellow stuff onto the pad, and put it in a zip lock so I can show the vet.

Naturally, there is no sign of the yellow stuff this morning.

A friend (who foaled mares out professionally for many years) hypothesizes dried urine.

Mares, it's always something. Big rain and storms predicted... but so far neither mare seems to be done cooking their babies. I'm at day 324, and 316 today.

Hi Beth, My mare would have that it is from the urine...mineral residue. Still if your vet is out there I would ask and let us know what she says :-) You are in the home stretch! probably about 3 more weeks :-)

Beth my mare had that about the last 3 days before she foaled. I thought it was urin tell I noticed her flirting with the geldings and showing sighned of being in heat around them. I think her hormones were up in the air. She also was flirting about 2 weeks before as well.

Thanks Jan and Tahra Sky. That makes sense!

Actually the vet is overbooked today, so we have postponed the castration -- which would have been a few miles away where this colt lives.

My other mare (316 days) has been very flirty with the 2YO geldings. Vocal, and marish with the front leg in the big exagerated strike/paw thing mares do... just from me leading the colts by on the other side of the fence. I think their hormones do get very active late in gestation. At least the 316 mare is happy-- the happiest pregnant mare and BEST mother you've ever seen. Her companion, the 324 is miserable when she's in foal... and usually a bit apathetic about having a baby at her side. What a pair they are!
