Help. My maiden mare is pregnant, not sure how far along. Was originally bred in late Oct and then was caught breeding again in March. I think she was in a false heat in March but have not done an ultrasound yet. My problem is that in mid June was out riding and after riding for about one and a half hours I noticed the inside of her back legs were coverd with blood. I originally thought that she had stabbed herself with a tree limb or something to have caused so much blood to be covering her legs. I then realized the blood was dripping from her teats. I then milked her and blood came out. I also noticed that at the beginning of the ride she was a little bagged up and at the time of the bleeding the swelling had gone down. I called the vet immediately but by the time I got her home she had quit bleeding. I also milked her again when I got her home and nothing but clear liquid came out. Went riding the first of July and she started bleeding again. Not as bad as the first time but still there was some blood leaking from her teats. She is still bagged up and now I have noticed some swelling moving along the bottom of her stomach from the back to the front. Could this be mastitis or something else? Vet is coming out Sat morning. Note--this does not happen while grazing, only when trail riding. Have also milked her a couple of times since and fluid is clear.

Tina,

What do you mean by breeding? was she in a pasture with a gelding or stud and caught in the act?

She was in with a stud and was caught in the act by my grandmother the second time. The first time she was with a different stud and was caught in the act several times over about a two week period.

Are your certain she is still pregnant? I'd appeal to Jos for this one.

Definitly still pregnant. In fact, she is really beginning to put on the weight in just the last three weeks. She was palpated back in May.

Only one thing I can think of right off....but there is surely more. Please don't take my thoughts over the thoughts/education/advice of a DVM.

Bleeding from the teats can be a symptom of a prepubic tendon rupture. "Normally" seen in late-term mares, those who've had many foals, and more commonly in draft breeds.
Granted, with prepubic tendon ruptures, these mares are heavy in foal, and the tendon gives way...and the bleeding can be a pre or post symptom of a rupture.

I'm NO vet, but would encourage you to pursue a veterinarian's advice...specifically since your mare is in foal.

The vet came out and said that everything looked fine to him at this time. He palpated her again and said that she is possibly around 7 months but could barely feel the foal so not 100% sure of when she is due to foal. No blood at this time. But he did say that he didn't think it was mastitis.

This "prepubic tendon rupture", is it a serious condition? My mare is 16.5 hh and was bred by a horse of the same size maybe a hand shorter. Can this cause problems with foaling or nursing? Any other signs to look for?

hello my name is tonya and i have a similar problem. my mare is bleeding from her vaginal area and i wanted to kno what may be the problem. my grandmother thinks she may have lost her colt. but she only bleeds when she is lieing down. i was out to get her one day to take her to the grazing field. she was lieing down and she got up when i got to her. behind her there was a pool of blood and her legs and vaginal area was coverered in blood. It is also her FIRST foal. I need help. i cannot find anything info about this at all. we stalled her for awhile. please give me suggestions.

I'm no expert but I was told that vaginal bleeding in pregant mare might not be as bad as we might think since varicose vein within the vagina wall can sometime rupture and bleed what looks to us like important quantity of blood. If that is the case there is little concern, other then keeping her clean.
I was told that vaginal bleeding is not a typical sign of abortion in mare (not like in people!)
Hopefully someone more knowledgable will pipe in.

i can't answer your question, but hate to see it go unanswered! I have never had a mare drip blood from the teats before. Hopefully, someone will be able to answer your question! Has your vet seen her yet? Or was he concerned enough to see her? Maybe it's nothing to worry over...
