Exclamation My Mare is Bleeding. Heat?

My mare (Ally) is in heat. I went to check on her this morning and I found a small puddle of blood in her stall. It wasn't dark red more of a orange color. She is 19 years old. She doesn't have any cuts or anything, I checked her body all over. Does anyone know of anything it could be? I have never seen this before. She is her regular happy self. Eating, Drinking, running around. Could it be from her being in heat? She has a gelding Stalled right next to her.

Please respond ASAP


Thanks

Call the vet ASAP! Horses don't bleed like dogs when in cycle..

Keep a close eye on her but I would call the vet.

Mares do not bleed. Call the vet, Maybe you are looking at Urine, take a little cotton or gauze dab it into the puddle and smell it. If it smells like pee its pee.

I agree. Rule out pee. But we had a 20 year old mare here who had irregular heats and one day we came out to quite a bit of blood and a very messy tail. The vets best guess was a cyst - put her on red raspberry and that did help regulate her a bit.

I agree it may just be concentrated urine. It can have an orange tinge at times I have noted this when my horses urinate in the snow. Of course, if it's not urine then have the vet check on her. Hope all is well with your mare.

BTW, if you're into mare pee, you'll notice that the color and smell is noticeably different when they're in season.
