They look like tiny warts. Thats the best way to describe them either side of the mid section of the vulva on the outside. Any chance it could be as a result of kind of STD? she has had 1 healthy foal I'm told and has been leased to us to breed from. She will get hand served today, we're in the southern hemisphere and at the end of our breeding season but this mare has a great showjumping history so couldn't turn her down. She has nice conformation too.

This may be EHV-3 (coital exanthema) or the remains of it, and should be looked at by your veterinarian BEFORE breeding live cover if there is any indication of an open sore/pustule associated with any of the lumps, as if it is, it could be highly infectious to the stallion. Follow the above link for more details.

Thanks Jos, your advice is bang-on and much appreciated. They certainly looked like EHV-3, which as you'd know many horses carry latently anyway. My stallion hasn;t presented with any lesions thank goodness.

FWIW, you will typically find that many horses carry EHV-4 or possibly EHV-1 latently, rather than EHV-3, which pertains strictly to coital exanthema.

Glad there's no sign on your stallion - it's good to keep it that way! :-)
