Well, some mares do bleed but there is an explanation for it. I have a draft mare when she is in heat, she has a little bit of blood in her vaginal wall and vault, sometimes even on her rump. I had a repro vet look at her, what it was is there are many small veins in the vagina and vault, when they are in heat, they swell some, the skin will rub together, causing the tiny veins to rupture, hence why you may of seen some blood.
However, with Smoke, if she laid down, it would literally puddle up so the vet had to go and cauterize it. Talk about feeling bad for my mare!
