    Exclamation Arabian mare

    I moved my Arabian mare today and she was all hyped up at being in a new place and prancing around but I noticed that when she was her butt looked like she wanted to go pooh but nothing was happening and it was pink and looked like she was straining. Looking at just her though you couldn't tell a difference she was just a little excited to be in a new place. It was only as her tail was lifted that you could tell... Im just wondering what this might be and why she is doing it. Has this ever happened to a horse you know? Im slightly concerned as I have just braught her and were both getting used to to each other so just want to make sure it's nothing to be worried about.

    Arabians tend to lift their tails in a trot all the way through a gallop, so it probably just her high spiret just came into play;)

    When I moved my mare and gelding to a new place, the did a similar thing (I think)
    Has she pooped since you moved her?

    Besides that, does she seem to be fine? (eating, drinking?)
    If you're worried you could call a vet and see what he/she has to say over the phone.
    It may just be that she's excited/scared to be in a new place.

    If she goes into a stall at night, maybe call and ask your BO if she pooped during the night. Or, if she's in a paddock by herself, go by tomorrow and look for poo.

    My gelding went the same day (after a few hours of running and checking everything out. My mare went the next day.

    I would say if she doesn't go to the bathroom to call a vet.

    Its her booty hole lol
    I havent seen her to it since it was just when we put her in her new field.
    I have seen another horse do it but can't for the life of me remember why so thought it would be best to ask other people who have come across this problem.
