When I got my mare she was just coming out of a heat.
Bring her home she meets the gelding and goes back into a light heat. A week later we go camping for 3 days with our 3rd horse (another mare) and she seemingly goes into heat a bit at the campground which isn't supprising being around the new horses.
We got back sunday and since then she has been in a terrible heat around the gelding.
She is a bit of a pain to get into her stall anyway but the other night she stood infront of the gelding's stall and did everything she could to make sure the world knew she was in heat, tried to take her for a ride today and as soon as we were out of sight of the pasture I was hoping she would get better b ut she went backwards instead and got a lot worse.
12 year old tennessee walker, has had 3 foals in the past (so one would think she'd figure out the gelding is no fun and sortof worthless to her) and right now I have her locked out of the pasture from the other 2. Not sure if that is the "right" thing to do but wasn't about to reward her bad behavor with going where she wanted.
So does anyone know if after a few months she will probably get better about this? Is it just because she has a new friend? Or is this probably just how she's going to be with the gelding around and i'm going to have to trailer to get in a decent ride without her acting stupid about things...
