    Default My Mare Needs Jingles....Update Post #24...Good News!

    I think my Weltmeyer mare is trying to abort. She is 150 days in foal, she was checked 3 times and all looked well (however this vet has missed twins in the past, but not for me).

    I weaned her '11 filly 11/2 for the second time (long story). I kept checking the mare and her bag dried up just fine within a week.

    Then 2 days ago her filly escaped from her paddock, headed straight for her dam (on the other end of the property), broke through the hot-wire gate without so much as a 'by-your-leave' and immediately started to nurse.

    I caught her and returned the little stinker to her paddock.

    Then yesterday I noticed one of the mare's udder is VERY full (the other is fairly flaccid) and there is a drop of white fluid on the tip of each teat. I haven't seen any leaking or dripping, but the drops are still there as of this AM.

    Vet will be out at noon. She said that other things could be causing this udder enlargement and if the mare is trying to abort, "there is not much we can do about it."

    Obviously, if it is twins, then yes...better she abort now. But surely there is something we can do to save the pregnancy if it is something else?

    Suggestions? Ideas?

    And please jingle for my gal...if nothing else maybe the power of COTH will help.

    And here I thought my luck had FINALLY changed...

    Jingling for your mare.

    If twins, then no, nothing to do. If placentitis, you can treat. However, it is a little early for placentitis, so I'm guessing that it has to do with the filly nursing from the mare. In a recently weaned mare it doesn't take much stimulation to get the milk going again, so hopefully that is what you are dealing with. Most abortions that occur this early in pregnancy happen without warning, so it would be unusual to have a sign like this, at only 5 months along.

    I, too, am hoping it's simulation from the filly's nursing and nothing more... but jingling nonetheless!!

    This. Jingling, but also hoping that your mare is responding to her filly nursing, rather than trying to abort.

    Mega-jingles from Colorado. Come on Mama Mare, you need another little pest next year.
    Nothing with horses is ever easy or cheap. And if it is, you're doing it wrong. They always rip out part of your soul when they leave. I guess that's how they find us later.
