You need to have a vet check her but she may just be a gurnsey We have a milker mare. Her last foal was born over 2 years ago and she still lactates. It seems to flow more when she is in season. Just keep an eye on it and if the fluid turns yellow, puss like and or there is heat in the bag she will need some vet care (possible mastitis). Otherwise just watch your shoes when tacking her up

Wow, is this thread really from 2008? I had a mare who was never around a male horse at all and she produced milk and was not preggers. I was 12 at the time, so tried to milk her to get rid of it, which of course made more come in. It was really weird because I would milk her and leave it for the dogs to drink and the mare would drink her own milk. I eventually quite milking her and she dried up, lol.

There are geldings who are "proud cut." There's a small mass on the testicular cord, whatever you call it, above the testicles. Normally, the vet will cut above the massed tissue, which produces testosterone. In the case of a proud cut gelding, the vet will cut below the tissue and leave it there. Thus, you have a gelding with testosterone so they act like a stallion, but they cannot reproduce. We believe my pony may be proud cut, they poor guy tried mounting a TB mare!
