Feeling a bit stressed. My mare has been in a paddock beside the stallion for a fortnight and hasn't come into season. My friend has had 3 of her mares come and go and they only stayed for a week each and my girls still not showing any sign of coming on. The stallions lost all interest in her
She's 6 going on 7 shortly. Never had a foal and is normally very well mannered. Runs with one gelding normally. Comes when I call her. I've never had to tie her. She's never been hard to catch but at the moment she might as well have never been handled! I can't get near her.
I take her feed bucket out and she will come close but if I try to put her halter on she bolts.
She's got a white face and is starting to get blisters and sores from the sunburn. I usually have a mask our sunscreen on her. She's rubbing her mane and tail out from being itchy as I can't get near her to put fly spray on. I can't put get in a smaller paddock.
She must be having a wonderful time evading mum but Gees Louise she looks like a wild pony that no one loves!
I guess my question is, will she come into season soon or should I take her home? I'm currently paying agistment for two paddocks and getting very frustrated :'(
