My mare is going through a period of hyper activity - she is the sole mare in a small yard of four horses - 1 mare + three geldings.
Each horse has its own 3/4 acre paddock but they can meet over the electrified tape which separates each paddock
She is presently showing alpha mare tendencies and is behaving aggressively with the other horses. We assume she is in season.
We have noticed unusually that patches of dead grass are appearing
- presumably as a result of her urinations.
Does strongly acidic urine indicate any condition which might affect on her behaviour.?
She is scheduled to go for competition this weekend and next weekend but we are hesitant to take her along unless we can understand and hopefully counteract her behaviour.
