Today I noticed one of my mares had some cloudy discharge. She is somewhere around 75 days in foal... just so happens that she also somehow injured her eye lastnight too (when it rains, it pours, huh?).

Watched her throughout the day, same amount of discharge.. started on SMZ's this evening per vets orders. Will ultrasound her tomorrow.

I haven't seen the discharge dripping, and like I said, it's a cloudy white color. The mare seems to be acting okay. Has anybody had any experiance with this? I know normally when there is bloody/brown discharge then your really in trouble... thankfully we're not there yet.

Would Regumate do any good at this stage in pregnancy? Is it possible we may not be able to see the fetus (if there still is one) because of the stage she's in, I know that they will often drop over the pelvic brim.

FWIW, she had a full breeding workup before I bred her. Clean culture/cytology, and a IIA biopsy score, with the comments essentially saying that there is no reason for her not to get in foal, and carry to term. The repro specialist also noted no abnormalities. She does have Caslicks, as the breeding farm I got her from does that for most of their mares. She is *hopefully* still working on her 6th foal.

Is there anything in particuliar I should ask my vet? I've never had a mare loose a pregnacy before, so this is new to me :-(

Samantha. I certainly don't know about all this, but I hope your mare and foal are ok. I did have one mare who had various types of discharge (enough to scare me) but it was closer to 275 days, and her foal was still carried to 350!! Please let us know how it turns out.

How's your mare doing Samantha? Has the vet been out to take a look at her?

Sorry guys.

She seems better, no more discharge at least. We did ultrasound her, but could not see the foal (if there is one) because it had dropped over her pelvic brim. The vet *thinks* he got a glimpse of it, but can't be sure. We drew blood and should have the results back any day now I hope...

She is still on SMZ's and Immunall... my fingers are crossed! She's already been booked for a stallion for 2010, so I won't get a chance to breed her back to Solomon next year if she slipped.


I'll post as soon as I know about the blood test!

Thanks everyeone! Well there hasn't been anymore discharge, I'm keeping her on Immunall for another week though.. it makes me feel better LOL.

Her tone was good, vet said she still "felt" like a pregnant mare. Her cervix felt tight as well.

Her blood work "looked fine". So thats good, though I know it's possible to have a false positive at this stage.

Does anybody know when the foal would be visible on the ultrasound again?

She is right about 3 months along now (gosh, it seems like foaling is so far away for my mares next year!)

My Morgan mare is 9 months pregnant and has had a slight discharge almost from the start. It does not smell and is quite clear. It usually dries between her back legs. She is 18 years old and had a foal some 6 or so years ago but that was born dead, although fully formed. Anybody else had this problem and is it normal?

It depends entirely what the discharge is. If it is a pus discharge, that is bad. If it is merely urine (which is very yellowy with some pregnant mares at certain stages of pregnancy owing to the estrogen levels contained therein), that is normal.

If you have any doubts (which it sounds as though you do), have a veterinarian experienced in equine reproduction check her.
