    "Red Bag" birth?

    A term that I've heard a few times with breeding and foaling season in full swing is a "red bag birth."
    Does anyone know what it means? I kind of got the impression that is was bad, like still born or a breach, but I never found a definition :)

    Just curious if anyone knew :) It's really hard to find a clear definition of a horse term through normal research, with so many different definitions and uses of the same word. This thread really helps :)

    I think a Red Bag birth is when the placenta does not separate from the uterus wall properly. This actually happened to me with my second baby. The Doctor manually palpated the placenta to get it to release, had that not worked there would have been big trouble.

    That is a retained placenta which is very dangerous to the mare. Red bag delivery is when the placenta detaches from the uterine wall prematurely during delivery and is presented first before the foal. This is very dangerous for the foal since the placenta blocks the passageway and stops giving oxygen to the foal when it detached from the uterus. The term "Red Bag" directly refers to the red placenta being presented first during delivery, you only have minutes to get in and get the foal out to reduce the chances of a dead or dummy foal. Dummy foals are named that because they went too long without oxygen and their brain was damaged, causing all sorts of potential problems.

    Trained
    Over faced-
    When your horse is unable to perform bc he or she has not encountered or been trained to a skill.

    I have NEVER heard this word used in any other context than with horsemen.

    Btw, what is really interesting is the posters that are no longer active on our forum. =(

    What does "days on" mean? Example.

    "has a solid 60 days on her. She has been used in the pastures for doctoring calves and doing pasture checks. She has also been ridden on the roads. She is a great mare that almost anyone can ride."

    60 days (or about 2 months) of training. Or she has been ridden for 60 days.

    I will check out that site Kirsti! I know for me I have asked what a person was talking about or I have just acted like I knew and then watched and listened some more to see if I could pick out the meaning. Sometimes that works but lots of times it doesn't so this is a good suggestion for a thread on here!

    Frlsgirl, you're not alone there. I thought almost the same thing for the longest time, but with a picket and single hobble.
