Seems like a urinary tract infection? What could it be?
OK, this is probably going to come across as dumb, but I haven't owned a mare in years until now.
I have a 20 month old filly, who I just brought home on Friday. Today, when I put her in her stall, she peed, and it was a normal amount, but it looked really similar to orange juice.
A few minutes later, she spread her legs, lifted her tail, and peed again, but this time just a tiny bit came out.
A few minutes later, same thing.
Is this a normal mare thing to do? She was in her stall not facing any other horses when it happened. It's January - it shouldn't be anything having to do with her heat cycle, should it? I have read that urinary tract infections are very rare, so I'm thinking it is unlikely that's what it is. But what is it, then?
