Masquerade, I still think so also. My local vet seems to think that since everything feels normal when she is palpated that there cannot be any tumors. Does anyone know if that's entirely correct? I have a hard time thinking there couldn't be a tumor just because he spent five minutes feeling around.
Justdressageit, Yes it was actually blood. There were dark red "stringy" clots but for the most part the mare had bright red stained/streaked legs and a mostly red tail. She was still "dripping" when I came out and saw this.
She has since -this evening- gone back to "in heat" and will not leave the other horses alone. We've separated her for everyone's safety, but that's hard with her as she doesn't want to eat when separated. I had a lengthily discussion with the mares owner this evening and she feels that she cannot afford taking the mare to state. The vets here are leaning towards - for lack of knowing whats wrong - putting the mare down. I am pulling my hair out over here, if she were mine she would have been hauled to MSU the morning of. But she is not and I am not in the position to put tests into someone elses twenty year old mare
