This is probably a stupid question, but this is the first mare I have had after owning nothing but geldings for almost 15 years.
Do mares have a discharge when in season?
I bought my mare last October and she was pregnant. Baby was born July 14th. She has come into season twice since then (that I know of) because she was squealing and peeing for the geldings. The last time was around the beginning of September.
Now it is the beginning of October and I haven't seen her flirting with the geldings at all, but I noticed she has a few drops of mucous dripping from her vulva for the past several days. Not constant, but when I groom her, I'll notice a few drops of clear mucous on the ground under her tail area. After further investigation, I saw it was a clear slimmy looking mucous coming from her vulva. Is this normal or something to be concerned with? It's not much, and it's clear, but I have seen it for a few days in a row now. I don't think it is urine because it is thicker than urine and basically clear in color.
This is my first time owning a mare and I am pretty dumb about their heat cycles and what's normal and what isn't.
