It stresses me out to have seen that when my mare is due any time. If you guys remember, my mare was bred by the barn owners stallion when he turned him out to his mares and my mare was in with the others! I found out after it was all said and done. I had no intention of breeding her, I'm too sentimental for this crap.

Even I felt like it wasn't normal, and I have no experience with this. I agree they should have had the vet out. I'm glad I have you guys here for help because I have lost confidence in them! It's scary and stressful having to do this when you have no idea what you're doing. I've tried to educate myself as much as possible, read books, read articles, asked questions, etc.

One of my mares a few years back had something like this, I did have the vet out and he told me it was mucus plug. It was about the size of a coffee cup rim. It was mucus but, it was sticky. Sorry you had to see this and hope all goes well with your mare!

Is fescue toxicity a problem in your area? It can cause all sorts of pregnancy problems.

Yes it is a problem here. The mares were taken off pasture well in advance so I don't think that's the issue. But hey I'm certainly no expert!

Have you had the vet checking your mare? If not, you might want to have him out at least once between now and the time she foals. That way, he has some familiarity with both of you in the event of an emergency.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Yes I have had my vet out to check her and do her shots. He said he thinks she will have a big baby but shouldn't be any issue with delivery. He wasn't able to determine if she's ever foaled before so who knows!

Yikes, I'm sorry you had to witness that. It's scary enough being a first timer with foaling without having to see the (almost) worst case scenario so close to the due date. You sound like you have done everything right so far and your mare looks in good shape from the pictures you posted in the other thread, so I would try and just focus on your mare for now.

Poor little foal and mum! I posted in another thread (think it was Clydes) about a discharge and it sounds similar - bloody browny colour - whereas the mucus plug should be pinky in colour - although with Fox I don't think we ever daw the plug. So sorry (the UK link was down all yesterday so have only just seen this now). Nature can be cruel xx
