Never heard of it or seen it with horses, but billy goats -- WOW! Look out! It is so stupid, it's hilarious -- as long as it's a small billy. I actually used to make a point of going out to see the billy goat before I took my shower. I would hold out my hand or just stand near him and he would instantly INSTANTLY be excited and within seconds he would emit! And again, and again, and again. ... There is a reason there's a saying, "as horny as a billy goat"!

Well, I have never heard of that. I can see how people could assume that... but it lacks proof.

I agree with everyone. It's nonsense. Women on their period aren't ovulating, so why would an animal "go nuts" over it? The only excuse that makes any sense is that maybe they are reacting out of fear of the blood, but that is debunked by the fact that the discharge is not totally bloody. In fact, most of it is not blood and for any woman here who has suffered from a serious wound and had a period, she can tell you...for the most part it smells nothing like blood.

And I have also been around goats on my period and never had anything happen. Because once again...you're not ovulating on your period, so why would they care? I'm betting that the goat is reacting to something else entirely. Unless he's just the only one.

Yes I have heard this too when I was younger...but I have been around stallions for many years everyday and never have witnessed anything to give this folk tale any truth! I think it is an old wives tale of sorts. Someone probably got chased out of a studs corral once and just happened to be that that time of the month and so then they attributed it to that...then from there it snowballed...kind of like many other stories.

My mum said the same thing.

My mare's always know when it's that time of the month, and my stallions... Well they generally just like me in that way, they get a bit... Meh. 0_0 Which creep's me out, but I cope.

It must just be the smell. You have to admit, we ladies smell just a tad different when we're on our periods (hey, I know that's gross but really this whole topic is gross :P ). It doesn't smell exactly like blood, but it does have a very strong smell that might upset some animals. For the most part I don't think it's anything to worry about.
