View Full Version : Mare Bagging Up Before Foaling

23-08-03, 01:21 PM
I have a mare who is 12 days from her foaling date(340days).She is bagging up now but one side is twice as big as the other and the big side is hard and slightly hotter than the other. It is also swollen on the inside of her thigh near the swollen side. This is her second foal, last time she did not let me touch her so I don't know if this happened the first time. She did suffer from mastitis when I weaned the first foal, so this concerns me.

Can you tell me if this is acceptable? Should I monitor it? or call the vet? Please help.

Hi, i see you posted this meassage a week ago, has the mare foaled yet?! I think i would have gotton the vet to take a look at her,mastitis was the 1st thing that popped into my mind. maybe if you took her temperature - it might indicate if there is an infection.
