Hi all new here, great forum!

My mare has been home about a week, and was PTIF roughly 14 days ago, i do not know exactly how many days she is in foal as yet, as she was at stud a while (2 unsuccessful live covers, final AI with success) She'd roughly be 40 days, give or take.

On 2 occasions now *that Ive witnessed* she has tilted her tail and expelled a clear/cloudy thick liquid. It doesn't look at all like urine. When she does it, she doesn't exhibit any other sign, ie: squatting, winking etc. She can just be eating her dinner and do it.

She also is getting over a reaction to ticks. She came home from stud and progressively started showing the symptoms "bite like lumps all over her back" "swollen rear fetlock joint/pasterns" "puffy filling under her belly".
It wasnt until 3 days of bute and head scratching that i discovered the ticks, she was not sick, off her food/water and was happy to get around as she normally would.

Vet said she will be fine.

I am wondering if the discharge is cause for concern ie: re-absorption, infection. Or if this is normal?

Thankyou.

I am not an expert but my mare came into season regularly squirting. There was a dominate gelding around. Once she wasnt around him anymore it stopped. Hence the reason I bought her not knowing she was in foal. That was 3 months ago. She is due roughly at the end of this month.

My mare did this every month after she returned from breeding, mostly around her favorite gelding (squirting, backing up, squatting). She was confirmed in foal before I brought her home and is now 218 days and still pregnant. Read these earlier posts, there is a lot of good info.

Hi Thanks for the reply's.

She doesnt 'show' like she's horsing to another horse. It almost like intermittent urination, if you can imagine, one long drip of liquid at a time. Im not sure how often, ive only witnessed it 2 times over 2 weeks, her tail has the liquid dried in her tail, the whispy bits on the sides.

And as of today she has started dripping milk. What does this mean! Remembering she is still in early stages of pregnancy.

hmmm
