    She is stabled next to a stallion? I think I would try to change that if you can. You don't want to end up with an accidental breeding.
    I think if they are housed with geldings they will still settle into a regular "cycle". They won't be in a constant state of estrus just because a male is near.

    Sorry to double post but I wanted to add, they do have a hormone you can give them to keep them from going into season. I don't remember what its called but I'm sure if you talk to your vet about it he will know.
    Its very expensive though.
    There are herbal supplements you can give too that are not too expensive and I think have good results. They are mostly to keep the mares mood more constant during the breeding season.

    Before we moved barns, Vega was being stalled next to 2 geldings, and when she was turned out, she was next to geldings as well. Though she didn't go into season much at all.

    Since we moved and she's been living with geldings, she's been going into heat a lot more.

    I would try and change the situtation of her being next to a stud. A friend of mine's mare went through three round pen panels (those metal ones) to get into a stud

    My mare goes into heat every month??!! From some of your posts , it sounds like this is not normal???? !!!!! She is pastured with our two other horses , which are geldings and about 99% of horses at our barn are geldingss... But I didnt really think geldings had anything to do with it... She goes into heat for like 3,4 days every month ... I thought this was normal but from the sounds of your posts it isnt ??? Any thoughts?
