Mare showing estrus to a GELDING?

Alright, so no matter what my 18 year old mare will show estrus when a gelding comes around and pushes her back end against them to try and get them to mount. Is it normal for a mare to do this? Even to a gelding that wasn't proud cut?

Could it be because she once had a proud cut gelding mount her?

Lmao. XD I've seen this mare do it once before, to another gelding. She practically forces her butt in their face, pees, and doesn't leave. I'm always like "Ladybug... he isn't going to help you"

So it is pretty normal?

Can mares not tell if they are gelded or not?

Yep, she's just a little hussy! The little Welsh mare down at the riding school does this stuff all the time, and she's only got geldings around her.

One of the mares where I board does that to my gelding every time she come into estrus. He likes the attention, but has no idea what she's after.

Haha, xD. Didn't realize I had such a hussie on my hands.

Sad part is, she just started liking this gelidng I bought two weeks ago. Before she was quiet mean to him. Chasing him, biting him, just down right hateful. Then yesterday she started being loving to him. Tonight my mom was watching her, she squated, urintated and started winking. She was like "I think she is in heat". I watched her do it several more times from the house, then went out to let my chickens out and realized she had actually gotten pee on his chest... I'm lik "Really?" I don't know about this mare, wonder if she is going to be mean to him again once she realizes he isn't going to give her anything. XD

Yep, That is why you can use a gelding for a teaser.

I was just thinking about that too. That is pretty funny. I thought they could tell they are geldings, I know the geldings don't know the what to do unless they were proud cut.
