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?
