How do tell when mare is in heat.

This is a dumb question. I have always had mare and could always tell when they are in heat. Now I have a mare that I want to breed but I can't tell. She is the same every day no mare attitude, no pushing her butt towards other horses, nothing. So any advise would be great.

My mares the same way. I brought a new horse home and hello full blown heat! It was a mare too. Lol. With a mare like that, maybe tease her with a stud or youll just have to put her in with a stud and wait until she lets him breed her.

You can try teasing, or sometimes I can tell by the urine as well, it will have quite a bit of calcium in it.

Has she ever been bred? Some mares have "silent heat" usually maiden mares or ones that have a foal by their side.

Are you going to have a live cover or breed her AI?

Either way though - she should have an exam by a repro vet. Will save a lot of money and potential heartache down the road.

Either way it would probably be best to have the vet do an evaluation on her to see if she actually is cycling or is just hard to detect.

Mine is silent but she loves to tease the men and walk off :) there is a reason for every behavior. Learned in psychology and my mom and quoits true. Even mine is maiden but she's having hot dates with a California stallion and vet right now. :) lol

Its live cover. And she has been checked awhile ago and is good to breed she does have heats but hard to tell. She is one of those mares who rides the same everyday.

She is a maiden mare. And a very silent heat. She was trained hard as a 2 and 3 year old so that could be why its silent. Its weird because my 2 and other 4 year old are witches when they are in heat.
