I have heard from several people that Mares can come into heat after conceiving, and I have seen a pregnant mare come in the following month. Lately I have heard that a small number of mares will show heat throught out their pregnancies. Has any one else heard of, or had experience with this?
Second question. I have owned and worked with many mares. Typically you notice distinct heat cycles throughout the summer, unless you have a mare that is very quiet about it. My arabian came into heat in mid april(I got her in march) and was extremely obnoxious about it tail in the air, butt in every geldings face, etc. I havent seen her in heat since, at all. She is in a mixed herd with lots of geldings, and I have seen virtually every other mare in heat, but not her. Her previous home she was out with the cows, only brought in a couple times a year, with one other gelding. Has anyone heard of a mare that obviously comes into heat in the spring, then is silent the rest of the year? I'm a bit worried about this one...
