mare "showing" heat. Help she wont go out.

I have a mare that we have had for 2 weeks now. The day we brought her home she started "showing" badly. We kept her in another area away from the 2 geldings thinking that was some of the reason. Well a week later she was some better not squirting so we put her in big pasture with the boys. She immediately started showing like crazy making my gelding insane. It has been 2 weeks now and she is still flashing, winking, squirting. How long does it last? She's not ill or mean during just making my boys nuts!!!!

The average length of their cycles I believe is 3 weeks and she will be in full heat for about a week, depending on the mare and her situation to males (especially studly ones) so escentially, it makes sense for her to be two weeks out and one week in at a time

In the spring a mares heats will last longer and seem more intense. As the year progresses they will decrease.
She will calm down especially if she is used to the geldings being around. Shalom

She's probably just coming out of anestrous and going through her transitional phase. She should soon settle into her regular estrous cycle pattern.If she continues to constantly show signs of being in heat into later spring/summer,she may have some problem,such as a hormonal imbalance or a cyst.

I agree. With our mares, the first two cycles of the year seem most intense and at this time some will show to other mares, too.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Thanks for the help everybody. Since I took her out of direct contact with the boys she seems to have subsided some. I just hope that I don't have to keep her from them permanently.

If you can do it safely, you might be better off to either put her right next to them or in with them (since they're gelded) and just let her get over her excitement. It will pass eventually and all the squealing and squatting will stop.
