Unhappy Filly with swollen vagina?

Sorry about the title I wasnt sure how to word it.
I JUST bought this 1 and 1/2 year old filly about a week ago.
And I noticed her vagina is swollen towards the bottom. When she urinates its very little and starts then stops and so on. I'm not sure what I should do or whats going on down there. I have a picture to show what I mean about the swelling. I will post it upon request.
Please help. Hopefully I can get this problem solved without a vet.

Sounds to me like she's in heat, and she's "squirting" - their ever so disgusting way of showing off.

Isn't she in with a young colt? Or I'm I mistaking her with another filly on the forum? Without pics probably would guess yes she is having heat cycles or has been bred. Is she puffy in her udder region?? Many youngsters when they first cycle will also get puffy in that region too.

My first thought was that she's in heat. If you have reason to believe she isn't in heat and it's something else, I would at least call the vet and ask.

She was in with a colt. The filly you are talking about is my friends horse, she keeps hers at my house. I have taken out the stud colt. He was only in there for 3days but the woman who gave the 3 babies to us had them all together. I don't think she has been bred and I don't think this is her in heat. The stud colt will be getting gelded soon by the way :) I heard that many people on here were fussing about that

Oh and she is VERY skinny if that has anything to do with it?
She is in the weight gaining process. I have already wormed her as well.

Post the photo. She's probably in heat, but may have a vaginal or uterine infection, which would require veterinary care. And if she is in heat, that probably means that she either already did or is shortly about to get bred by the stud that's in the pen with her. Which will require a shot of lute from the vet to abort, as otherwise pregnancy could easily kill her at her young age and tiny size.

Edit: I see the image is up. Don't really see anything abnormal there. Is there discharge? I would still absolutely have both her and the other filly checked for pregnancy.

If it were me, which it is not of course, I would just go ahead and lute her...it is possible for a vet to miss the pregnancy...

They were fussing because all the horses you have are well below any acceptable standard of breed worthy animals.
