in my case April gets really touchy and crabby, where Chloe doesnt seem to be effected.

I think alot depends on the horse and their bodies. April is also only 5 where Chloe is 14... so I dont know if that has anything to do with it.

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

Undersaddle, she'll move but it's very slow and only where and when she wants.

I'll call up my vet and see if he does reproductive health. I believe he does, but I want to be certain.

What's the treatment for something like that?
It could be. The summers might be harder for her because of increased hormone production. Her not wanting to move, even when turned out, says physical pain to me, not just "moodiness." My mare was REALLY moody from 4-6 years old, but never showed any signs of pain like that. She was just disobedient, lol.

Turned out Vega will move, she'll bolt down to be with her buddies, and get quite fresh with them too.

It's just undersaddle when she's like that.

I'll still get it checked out. I rather be safe than sorry.
Thanks for brining that up. :)

Some mares have 'PMS' on their heat days, but others may show no sign! :) My old mare, Lexi didn't have PMS much at all. Daytona does have those days; eh!

Ride more, worry less.

one of our brood mares is just BAD when she is in heat! Well to be honest she is always been kinda a nasty mare. But when its that time of the month for! watch out...when you go try to catch her in the field she will come flying backwards at you trying to kick at you. But the second you have her halter on she isnt to bad. But the second she see's the stud, she is butter! she instantly becomes a completly different horse! she loves out stud...

She neighs at the top of her lungs at everybody, horses and people alike! She has one or two days where it's really bad and then a few days of not-so-bad but still not her normal self.

When she gets like that all I can say is it's a good thing she's cute...
Yep that sounds like Sandie!! She neighed so loud one night at another horse RIGHT next to my ear, I thought I would go deaf! She did it while I was riding her another night when she heard another horse halfway across the stable making noise!

She's normally pretty calm but these past few days she has been more jumpy and hasn't been listening to leg yields, is throwing her head around more, etc. But there are other factors that could be affecting it, which is what's making it difficult for me...for example, I know she needs her teeth floated pretty badly and the horses have all been kept in for the last 3 weeks because of the bad weather out here, so she could just be going stir crazy from that or be uncomfortable from the teeth or be in season or ALL OF THE ABOVE! I guess just like you least she's cute!

I can only tell when my mare, Athena, is in heat is when she tries to flirt across the fence with the geldings. Otherwise, she's just the same. She's never sensitive, mean, or whatever.
I guess I'm kinda lucky. I don't have to put up with a moody mare!

I'm a bit naive when it comes to horsey ovulation. How often does it occur? For how long?

man, my one mini mare beats the living crap out of my stallion when she is in heat. Poor little guy, didn't even do anything. LOL. Otherwise she is still herself around me, her ears stay pinned most of the time, but she doesn't try anything with me.

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!

Just like women, every month, usually for a day or three. My mare comes in heat year round, though winter heats are less noticeable. Some mares only come in season Spring through Fall.
