The gelding could act like a stud if he was gelded after he reached sexual maturity. That could cause his behaviour towards the mare

O Yes, he has Nothing. And I don't believe he's proud cut either he shows no reactions to any mares. Nor does he act study at all.

I believe the former owner told me he was gelded at 2, but I could be remembering wrong...... he is 7yrs

Hmmmmm she could have nicked the external area of her 'privates' during the scuffle with the gelding.....or else he could have walloped her hard enough to shake her up on the inside and cause some uterine type bleeding.....keep a close eye on her. This type of thing is possible as I have seen it before....horses and humans alike!

There is a gelding at the place a board that was gelded I think at 2 years old and he acts study a lot of the time. He is really hard to ride because he respects nothing but himself. He rears all the time and won't let you catch him. He is in with my mare and another older mare, and everytime you take one of them away, or both, he will run around and freak out (not so much with my mare though) or when you take him away he will rear and is a nervous wreck.

I don't consider that "study" behavior. More like spoiled and herd sour.

Saddlebred does the same thing and needs to be worked with my instructor.

It is visible where on the left side of the vulva ,she has skinned marks and some swelling. The Vulva itslef does not look normal with the swelling at the lower end , it could be damaged from the kick or from foaling in the past, and appears to be a tad lumpy. I would cold hose it, to see if the swelling will decrease.
Muppet girl, you have seen people with damaged vulvas ?

Are you talking about the swelling slightly inside the vulva tords the bottom? And what looks like bruising, the purplish area?.......Ya that is what I am talking about it is normally not like that......I mean it isn't perfect and you can tell she has foaled alot.....but it usually is not swollen and purplish like that...thats what makes me think she hit it or he kicked it......anyways.... cold hose it? I don't think I can do that, water hose is frozen, how about just a cold towel, or do you know another way? Would it help now that it is 2 days later. I have not checked her yet today. But she is eating /drinking as normal still.

I think anything cold would help keep inflamation down. I know ice is best for humans, but not sure about horses. It might be too much, especially considering such a tender area.

Poor thing. If it has stopped bleeding and she is not running a temperature and is otherwise acting normal, I would watch for another day. I agree with the cold hosing, although that will be quite uncomfortable and you might be better off hand washing her with a soft towel and a warm bucket of betadine/water solution.

I wouldn't watch it for too long though because I would worry about infection or internal damage. She should have knocked your gelding silly! Poor mare...
