    I am new to owning mares- have mainly had geldings for YEARS.
    My shetland mare had been running with a stallion since Jan 2 and breeder whom I bought her off said she is pretty sure she is in foal as she hasn't come back into season.
    I got her this morning and was brushing her this arvo. Her vulva looks as though there is a thickish discharge sort of sticking to her tail a little bit seeping out. She isn't near any other horses and I haven't seen her squirtint. It's kind of creamy and looks as though there may be some blood in it... I am guessing this is her in season?

    Anyone who can advise anything is appreciated.

    I have also mentioned this to the previous owner.

    Sounds similar to when my mare was pregnant and had placentitis, she required medication for the remainder of her pregnancy (which she subsequently lost). I'm not saying that's what your mare has but it sounds the same so a vet visit may be required.

    Vet is booked in. Thank you Kyles76 :)
    Check up is required anyway :)
