A 12-year-old multiparous barren mare failed to become pregnant the previous breeding season. Examination of the genital tract reveals a mature follicle present, an open cervix and a slightly distended uterus which, on palpation, expresses air out through the vulvar lips. Speculum examination revealed a reddened and relaxed cervix with air bubbles intermixed in a clear thin watery discharge.
