Exclamation What age do mares start their heat cycle?

I have a yearld filly and I was wondering what time around do most mares start there heat cycle? I am wondering this because when I take her away from the rest of the geldings.. SHE isn't the one to freak out any more.. the geldings are.. they run really fast all over the place and when I put her back they run straight to her and they are fine again.. Im not understanding.. I know a neighbors mare IS in heat.. so could that be the reason??

Fillies can have their first heat cycle as early as 6 months. As a yearling, your filly should be having or already has had a heat cycle.

I doubt the geldings are acting stupid because she's in heat. Sounds like they're herd bound to her.
