    Is she a maiden?
    I have seen the same thing on a few mares. It might very well be a transitional heat.
    Is she showing any signs of heat> Winking, backing up to a male, lifting her tail.
    If she is not dehydrated or feverish and eating normally I would go with what the vet says. Watch her closely. Any way you can get him out before the weekend?
    I had a couple of mares last year with crsytalized urine on their legs. Is this what you are seeing? Shalom

    She is not maiden. It's been 7 years since she foaled.

    I just put her with my gelding a couple weeks ago .. he acted all studly with her at first, but I've not seen her be at ALL receptive.

    Previous BO told me she was showing heat to her weanling/yearling colt in late december.. We both laughed .. DECEMBER! Now I'm wondering if it was part of this issue.. whatever it is.

    Her hair on her legs/hocks are/were just matted and when I went to brush them off, they clumped off and left nothing but skin. She's apparently been doing this a while.

    Vet will come out .. for an emergency fee. I ain't payin' it at this point! Lol. She looks good, eats good, drinks good ... makes the ugliest **** faces you have ever seen ... and thought about kicking me when I touched her hoo haa (which she has NEVER EVER thought about before)

    I appreciate you letting me air this out to you .....

    I hope everything is ok with her. I have never seen the symptoms you are describing, hopefully it was just the sticky pollen!!!

    If she is eating and drinking, acting normal then I would not worry to much.
    If you can get a picture and post it that might show me something. Can you believe that I just requested someone post a picture?
    I have a mare that cycles year round. She also had very strong intense heats.
    This might be the cause of the problem. When I saw the matted hair I freaked too.
    Keep an eye on her and if she starts dehydrating or goes off her feed then worry about calling the vet. Shalom

    I'll try to take pics .. of her obnoxious ugly face.. lol.

    She didn't even know HOW to make an ugly face when I got her.. all stalled up in a show barn in Ohio .. kept like a princess. Within a year, I had her pastured with two appaloosas, and a draft horse. She had to discover how to COMMUNICATE horsey-style.

    It takes more than an ugly face, though, because she can look MEAN and all the other horses look at her and go "Whatever" .. The old app mare can flinch a nostril and they kill themselves trying to get away from her. Horses KNOW if your serious or not .. and if there will be follow-through..

    Lol

    I get in the middle of'em sometimes, don't I?

    I'm not a CA follower, but I HATE HATE HATE witch hunts and people who take one person's word and run with it...

    I'm about to back out, because it's starting to sound like I want to have his baby or something .. lol.

    Don't you just love online forums I was on a local mommy board from pregnancy through about my son's 3rd birthday - sometimes threads got downright vicious.

    You actually provided lots of valid points/arguments on the CA thread, TG!

    One of the site's I've "liked" on Facebook, actually 2 different ones, have recently put a post about no more negativity! They're both recipe sites, people complain and bitch about the littles trivial things! I don't know why some people have to say something so negative all the time. And, it's usually the same people, over and over. No matter the subject! SMH!

    Texasgal I have a mare that has the yellow stains from the urine on her back legs right now. I havent tried to scrap them off so don't know how sticky they are. I don't think you have anything to worry about. Shalom
