I've never seen it before, not when they are leaking, I've seen large udders go down to almost nothing.

I'm getting worried, the vet will probably have to come out. I'm going to call in a bit.

Maidens can be very decieving...

My mare was a maiden when we bred her (several years ago). The morning before she foaled, I checked her and there was no back, no waxing, no softness/squishiness around the tail-head, etc... Nothing. Nada.

I had been invited to go stay with my cousins for the night, so I thought, ok, she's still got a few days, sure, I'll go visit my cousins. So I went and stayed the night with them (in another town about a half-hours drive away). The next morning at around 6am my great grandmother calls and says "Your horse had its baby. Your uncle just called me and told me. She had it in the pasture beside his house a few minutes ago."

You can imagine that I FLEW back home with my cousins in tow and lo and behold, my mare had decided to have her foal in the worst place in the entire pasture, right in the middle of my uncle's ''junkyard' (my uncle parked his old/wrecked cars in the pasture beside his house back then). I had been planning on bringing her into the Lot behind our house for her to foal... instead, she foaled in a fifty acre pasture with several other horses and cows as an audience...

Dakota (the foal) was still wet when I got there and hadn't even stood up for the first time yet.

I have not heard of it. But...not saying it can't happen. Mares are...Mysterious.

I checked this morning and there is still a milk drip down her leg, so it hasn't dried.

Pics.... HELP

So, I checked her this morning and all was fine, I just went out to check then in the next hour or so I will stall her but, look at these pics.... is it normal for the build of the milk to move up like this? Our mares only had it on tips of nipples before! I am scared!

Can you explain a little better? I don't understand what your getting at. What about "build of milk moving up"?? And what about the tips of nipples?

Here is what udders look like when they are getting full, this mare foaled 3 weeks later. The udders in the picture you post looks like udders from an unbred mare.

The waxy build up is covered her whole nipple and is beginning to build up more around her udder too. The second post of the picture I put on here, that white looks like it is spreading everywhere. I was afraid to clean it because I didn't want to unplug so she would leak more. But should I just clean her?
