Mare In Heat?
Ok, I feel really stupid asking this, but I just recently bought a mare, and she is leaking yellowish/clear fluid. I think it may be because she is in heat, but I've been riding for 9 years, and the other mares I've dealt with have gone into heat in a more obvious way (like when they almost do that half squat before leakage?) and her's just... leaks without any tell-tale sign or warning. If she wasn't my horse I'd probably just wave it off as a mare showing her heat cycle differently than what I'm used to, but since she's MY mare... I guess I'm just a worried mom.
Anyway, if anyone can just tell me whether this sounds normal or if it sounds like there may be something wrong, I'd really appreciate it. It's been going on for a week, and it's dirtying her butt... and I don't want to call the vet unless something actually is wrong, and this sounds too trivial... Thanks in advance.
