Last night, got to the barn and turned her out for her grazing time. She went out, stopped, and acted like she was about to pee but didn't pee - this mucousy (almost white-ish, maybe cloudy? Couldn't get close enough to see) stuff dribbled out. She did this every couple of minutes for a bit last night, stopped to roll but didn't the first couple of times (not like a colic, she rolls every time I turn her out), usually throws herself down like a wildwoman, but last night when she finally did roll, she verrrry carefully laid down and did it. Graze a little bit, then would do the "pee thing" again, winking a bit, and I ended up just putting her back up so I could keep an eye on her. She would stand with her tail held out and her ears back, would occasionally look back at her flanks, do the pee thing, and I could see her sides tense up.
I stuck around for a while, finishing barn chores, and ended up going home. Now worrying & anxious because my "possibly" pregnant mare looks more like a "probably". No idea of a due date, only a 2-3 month range of when she could have been bred. No bag filling. No wax. I thought her vulva looked very relaxed last night, but she did not have jello butt or anything.
So what could this be? She was so calm this morning, I was thinking maybe she isn't pregnant after all and I am just losing my mind! LOL! I wouldn't think it is first stage labor since it didn't progress, but they can stop that, can't they, if I am around and bugging her? Or do they have like false labor, repositioning the foal?
I couldn't sleep last night, so I drove out to the barn at 2am and put up woven wire on the dividing panels between her run and her neighbors, so if a foal came, it couldn't roll into the other run. And then I felt like such a fool for doing it, as she munched on her hay, completely nonchalant, mocking me for being worried! LOL!
This is her a couple of weeks ago, what do you think?
