    Mare in season

    I'm not used to mares. Our new mare is just coming into season. Are there any special grooming needs for her?

    Why would grooming be any different?

    Well their tail gets VERY yucky so definitely get into the habit of dousing it in de-tangler during the winter and washing it during the summer. You need to also clean their lady parts well including under their tail (but watch out some aren't fond of it and may kick).

    Don't use regular soap though, I would research what to use.. we only used water and a rag.

    Agreed- you may want to also keep an eye on her back area, it generally ( I have found) becomes very sensitive, different horses react differently.

    You also need to clean between their teats as it gets gunk there also

    One mare gets very sensitive when she is in season. We have to use a softer brush and we usually don't ride her during it. The other mare we have doesn't seem to change at all.
