I know some of yall look inside the mares vulva to check for color differences as a sign of her getting closer to foaling. Well I have a weird question about this. I was checking the color as I do as part of her daily check for signs and I noticed something different. Her vulva was open inside. Normally it is closed. I dont know if anyone else have noticed this in their preg mares.

I have pics to help explain.

In my mares, it elongated and was "lax". Also, the color deepened. The changes I observed weren't along the lines of the pictures here.

Thank you, Jill.


I have heard and seen the elongated also. I also read about the color change. I just wondered if anyone else ever noticed this opening change?

Bonny has been such a mystery girl....

Thats funny, my mare did the same exact thing. I thought maybe it was just me, but I checked her everyday.

Your mare opened inside also? How close to foaling?

I just had a friend tell me her mare did it also starting about a month before foaling. She said sometimes it was so open she thought the foal would fall out!
