I have a mare who is pregnant for the first time. I’m not sure how far she is along but know she’s at least 10 months. She has the yellow wax like stuff in one of her teats. A few weeks ago it was in both. Now it’s just in the smaller of the two teats. Her teats have become larger in the last month. She has yet to bag yet. I wonder what is this and what does it mean?

Thick, yellow, sticky, honey like would be colostrum in a pregnant mare.

Have you had a vet out to examine her throughout her pregnancy, give the appropriate vaccines, etc? If so, I would give them a call and ask them. Usually thick, yellow, sticky honey would be colostrum in a pregnant mare. If everything goes normal for the pregnancy and delivery, she will bag up before she foals. Colostrum doesn't usually appear though until they wax..usually near delivery.
