Has anyone experienced a mare with a VERY relaxed vulva (plenty relaxed enough to consider ready to foal) in early pregnancy? Udder is normal. Behavior is off but who knows what might cause that. No signs of illness or anything else suspicious.

My standard Jenny had a very relaxed vulva when she was about 5 months pregnant. It only lasted a day and she is now about 10 months along and still very pregnant with a live foal.

Hi Audrey,

My mare gets a very relaxed vulva right after she gets worked/ ridden. But then it goes away after about an hour or so. Do you ride your mare or is she just standing around all day and her vulva is relaxed?

She is not currently in work. She had been resting in her stall when I noticed it. I had never seen it before yesterday and haven't seen her yet today to see if it's changed.

Here are some photos:

Wow. The first pic is how my mare looks all the time. The second pic is what my mare looks like when she is about to pee or just after a work out. Hopefully everything is ok with her pregnancy. Was it hot out yesterday? Maybe she was just loose a tired from the heat. Hopefully everything is ok.

Nope. Quite cool and she was in chilling under her fan.

I'm probably going to have the vet out tomorrow just to be sure.

Just wanted to say she was confirmed to be doing just fine today at 151 days. Baby girl is very much alive and having a ball in there (very active). Heart and everything else looks good. YAY!
