So as most of you know I got myself a mare back in November. I mentioned that I've practically no experience caring for mares, I've only ever ridden one mare before her and I didn't see her all the time. Sorry for my ignorance, I'm just used to geldings
So I went out to see the horses today and I noticed Lily had some black tarry stuff on her hind legs. It was also in her tail and the leg straps of her blanket were sticky with the stuff. She doesn't have diarrhea.
Is it pee or is it from being in heat? I haven't seen her go into heat but it has gotten quite warm and sunny here so I think it would be possible for her to have an early heat. Is it?
I've attached pictures(it looks like there's hair missing but there isn't it's just stuck together). And yes after I took the pictures I did wash her legs off =)
Again sorry for the dumb question, just soooo not used to th mare thing =P
