Blood tonight. Normal?

Went out to check on our very pregnant mare tonight and she had blood coming from her vagina and was rubbing the wall. I have put a call into our vet and I am still waiting for him to call back. This worries me because she is not fully bagged yet and the milk has not changed. It is still clear causing me to think there could be a problem! Does the bloody show I've read about look this way? If anyone can offer insight while I wait for him to call I would be grateful. He always calls me right back and of course I need him to NOW and he doesn't!

Did you make sure she didn't cut herself on something in the stall?

Was it bright red blood, pink tinged discharge or brown blood/discharge? Was it a small amount or free flowling?

Yes, I saw it dripping from her vulva. I also read that it could be a ruptured blood vessel but her behavior tells me otherwise. She is exhibiting signs of pain with her lip in the air and rubbing her hind end. Of course, a vessel could hurt too not just labor. Sigh..

It was bright red, just a steady dripping. Its all down her leg and a few spots in the straw. I think it has stopped now.
