Mare is a Hussy
I started a thread about a month ago about the hussy mare that put out my Saddlebred gelding's eye. Well, the gelding's eye is pretty much healed. I do believe it is blind, but he seems to be adjusting well.
The hussy mare has now had 3 depo-provera injections and an entire bag or mare magic and she is still in heat! Just yesterday, the gelding were in their stalls and she went past them and instantly started squirting copious amounts of mare stuff. The saddlebred gets his stallion look on- ached neck, snorting. . . .The other old gelding pays her no attention.
The ASB gelding does not want to leave the barn and leave her there. He will go outside the barn and stand near the back of her stall and have bowel movements and run around and around the barn and cry like a foal that has lost his momma.
I am really getting tired of all this. She is fine to ride, but she lays her ears back quite often and wrings her tail. I want to take her on some trail rides, but often horses have to be ridden in areas where horses are turned loose on abandoned mine land and I don't want to end up with a stallion on my back.
I love my ASB gelding. I have had him for about 5 years and he was a very well behaved horse when I just had geldings. I guess I could get rid of the mare, but I would like to find some way to have them all live in harmony if I possibly could.
Has anybody got any other suggestions? I have read about marbeling, but don't know of anybody who has actually had it done.
