Hi guys, first time poster and first time breeder here.
My qh is due for her first foal around Nov 20th. For the past couple of weeks her udder has started slightly bagging up but then shrinking back down again. I took her to a local vet (not my preferred as I didn't want to drive her too far when this pregnant) and she said this was normal for maiden mares but I just don't feel reassured.
Tonight I went out and in the dark just had a feel to see if it had gotten any bigger and felt that in the sort of crevice between the two teats it was quite crusty and a little bit oozy.
I am def going to take her to my regular vet now but just wondering if anyone's mare has had the same? I have researched mastitis and all sorts of conditions but it's not hot or sensitive to touch. Just hoping to shed some light on the situation because i'm going to be stressing all day tomorrow until I can get her seen to!
