Too young to be so "frisky"...

Okay - the younger of our two horses - 9 months old at the most mind you - is a hussy! She constantly flirts with one of the geldings they live with and he has tried, quite unsuccessfully due to a large difference in size still, to mount her a few times. Isn't she still way too young to be in heat? Also, this seems to be a constant all the time over a month long thing now, ever since we moved them there. Will this ever end? Why does she do it? I swear I have never seen any other horse be such a wh@re ever! Mostly, why does she do this? Any input would be appreciated.

My filly went into heat at 9 months, so I'm thinking it's not uncommon! She constantly flirts with my mom's gelding, and he flirts back...

It's a relief to hear someone else's filly did it too. I guess she is just like a rotten pre-teen daughter trying to flirt with the highschool boys!
