I have a 14 year old Thoroughbred mare she has had 5 foals over the years and always takes first go round. Her last foal was a conjoined twin over 2 years ago.
She often gets real fat and produces milk. There are no stallions around.
A girl who leased her, very experienced even called a vet to make sure she wasn't in foal.
What do you think is making her do this.

I know two mares who still produce a watery milk; one five and a half years since last foal, the other about 9 years.

She isn't fat and producing milk all the time just off and on.
2 months ago she was fine and now she's the side of a house and leaking milk.

It could be its just a hormone imbalance and at the worst something could be up with her ovaries so only way to check it is to get the vet to have a very good look. Good luck
