Smile leaking udder

my 11 yr. old. morgan mare has clear kind of sticky liquid steadily dripping from her teats. They are way bigger than normal. She is not running a fever. She lets me manipulate them. She is in heat. She has been on a diet lately. Out on dry pasture and 10# of alfalfa a day. She is utd on all shots & worming. Does not act sick, and eating like a horse: Help Ridenslide

Some mares lactate when in heat. Never seen it, but I've heard it.

Thanks for your reply. I really don't think this is lactating. I'm think Hormone.I'm going to haul her to the Vet next week, and have a ultra sound done. Maybe a cist, maybe she just a fruit. She can really lose it at times. Other times she's the best trail horse I have ever had. Thanks Ridenslide

What makes you think she's leaking hormones? Thats almost a physical impossibility, tbh.

Ovarian cysts or cysts in her udder would have other (pain related) symptoms than her being a fruitcake.

No, sorry you misunderstood me. Not leaking hormones. But a unbalance of them. She has no pain that I can find. She has more of a lack of trust issue.

Ah yes...which makes since she is currently in heat, which might lead her udders to bag up.

I think you might be taking two unrelated issues and trying to relate them...one being a spooky mare, and the other being a mare in heat. Sometimes mares do become spookier while in their heat cycle.

Have you called your vet and asked if she needs to be trailered in? If spookiness and leaking teats are the only symptoms you have for suspecting cysts (if she had ovarian cysts she would be VERY grouchy while in heat, or when palpitating where her uterus would be) its my strong opinion that you would be spending a lot of money on a procedure that's unneccessary. Not that I can stop you, but who wouldn't want to save a couple hundred dollars?

Oh yes I have talked to my Vet the first time I saw her leaking. He said to watch for a week, check to see if she's gone out of heat. If she is out of heat & still leaking the she would need to be checked. I have palpated her uterus my self and she has no reaction. I don't know where u live but I'm glad I don't have to take my horses to your Vet. My Vet is the best. I live soooo far out in the boonies. Its a 2 hour drive to him. he keeps me supplied with all the Meds I would need for just about anything. In fact he sends others to me. I love him. Thanks so very much for your reply.
