Hello. I rescued a Quarter Arab mare about 4 months ago. She is a wonderful sweet mare. She is 20 and that she has never been bred. She currently has what I thought was a hay belly, but lately my daughter who is in charge of feeding the horses has been seeing her belly move. Some mornings little movement and yesterday morning large movement. It is right at the end of her ribs, right before her hips. I looked at her last night and while the haybelly has not grown but seems to be lower. Her belly is alittle wider than the rest of her but not huge. I was looking under her and brushed by her udders and a grayish cloudy liquid came squirting out of them. They are not large, but it was definitely coming out of them, and I noticed a salt like crystalization on them. She has gotten a little hollow in front of her hips as well, so we increased her feed and she gets two flakes of alfalfa a day. And the hollowness isn't getting better. Any advice or suggestions as to what is going on?? She was around a stallion, but they swear she wasn't bred. What would be causing such large gut movement? Oh and she has been acting very strangely. We bonded almost instantly and she has been running up to me in the pasture for pets when I get home from work and calling to me, but lately she will only stay a minute or so walk 10-20 feet away, turn around look at me and then walk back up to me. Then turn and walk away again over and over for 20 minutes. It was actually pretty funny. Anyway sorry for the long post. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am having the vet out next week, but would like any advice from horse owners as well.
My mare is the same way. We are almost positive that she is pregnant and have a vet coming to look at her in a few days. If you look in front of her teats do you see these little bulges? my stepdad also said that her squirting out greyish liquid like that could be a sign of false pregnancy. But like Samantha said just get a vet out if possible. only other way is to wait and see lol
