Hi, This is my first post and I don't know horse lingo so please bare with me. My mom has a 14-15 year old Mustang who has very recently lost a little bit of weight. Today my mom noticed a lump on her belly, on the bottom side. She also noticed some of her nipples are large enough that when she walks they sway. When she felt the nipples she said they feel like they have fluid in them. We have not bred her. We have no other horses. She came home to us last August. She had been boarding previously. Our neighbors stallion was loose about 2 weeks ago for at least 4 days. They found him in our woods fairly close to her in the scheme of things. She has an electric fence and there were no signs he jumped it. He was also dragging 20+ feet of rope and we figure he would have gotten caught on the fence if he tried jumping. Could she be pregnant and be getting a boost of hormones and that's why some nipples are enlarged? She had 2 babies before we bought her in case that has any bearing on her nipples being enlarged early. Any thoughts, help or insight would be appreciated. Thank you!
Most likely just hormonal I have a mare that is not bred that is actually leaking fluid right now from her udder. she is also in heat--just hormonal
