Maybe that's a horse man's dream about a good way to keep females away from horses every so often.

I have heard, though, that some (read, some) male horses may wish to be around females during their cycles. I would think that it's a smell thing and it might remind them of mares in heat.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

I do not think that has any merit to it at all.

However, I swear my last mare could smell.. well... the blood when it was that time of the month for me and she would always be spookier.

I heard that lions are like that and during the Like a Virgin video the crew had to be very careful. The women who had their period were not aloud to come that day.

this should say *nsfm* in the topic.

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

lol... you best get used to it around here!!!!

Ive never heard it before with horses but I have with steers and deer. I would get the "lecture" about why we werent getting deer (I was the only girl in my hunting group)... *shaking head* I think it was because the men always fall asleep in their stand and dont have good aim...lol

I've heard it before, but it's never shown true.

LOL... Bag it and Tag it baby!!!! *high five my hunting sista* I've heard the same thing, usually from the guys somewhere around beer thirty when they passed up the shot on bambi waiting for that 30 point buck.

As to the Original question...It lacks proof.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I own both a stallion and a holstein bull at the house, I have yet to drive either one nuts during that time!

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!
