Question Mare in heat?

Have always had geldings--this is my first mare. Do mares have regular cycles? Her temperment always seems the same, had noticed her urinating more and also visable signson her. Not seen anything in quite awhile--what's up, could something be wrong?

Mares cycle about every 21 days from the spring to the fall, but a good number of mares don't show any signs unless around a stallion (some will show to geldings or even other mares). Having a mare that doesn't show is typically good as they don't exhibit 'mare-ish' behavior.
Unless she seems off in some other way, I wouldn't worry.

My brothers mare will stick her tail up as high as she can put it, and run around the fields bucking when she's in heat. My dads on the other hand doesn't show any signs. Hope this helps. Good luck

Keep in mind that mares don't bleed during their cycle like humans (and dogs) do. I never even thought about the fact that horses would have a cycle until we started getting more horses on our property and sending all the mares into, like, insta- heat with a stallion and new geldings. It was insane.
