Normal bloody show??

Ok, time for more annoying newbie questions

This is not concerning my mare who is due any time now, but another mare owned by my barn owner. I saw the mare in a half pee pose (if that makes sense, not squatting all the way like they do when peeing) and she just stood there for a while looking miserable with her tail cocked to the side. I walked over to see her, and on the ground was a puddle of mucousy bloody liquid about the size of a paper plate, maybe a little smaller. I, of course, had to grab a stick and poke it (yes, because I'm just that disgusting LOL) and it was like snot! The color was not bright red, but a murky reddish color.

Is this normal bloody show?

Well, apparently this wasn't normal....Sadly the mare delivered a still born foal some time in the night or very early morning. The barn owner had already removed the little colt by the time I got there but I saw the evidence that he had been there. There was blood and there were pieces of a soft little rubbery hoof left behind

How sad

That is unfortunate, I was hoping to see baby pictures this morning but stillborn foals is one of the risks of breeding. Not everything turns out perfect every time, which is why we fuss over the pregnant mares so much. I hope the mare recovers quickly without any complications.

Correct, that is not normal and the owner should have had the vet out when it happened.

The mucus plug is not large and extremely liquidy. More...sticky. Often it goes un-noticed because of how small of an amount it is.
