mare in heat/questions

Didnt really know where to put this.......
We just bought a mare today and apparently she's in heat.Our geldings wouldnt leave her alone.They all settled in but it was a site.
My question is how long is a heat cycle and how often?I'd really like to seperate her form the boys from now on.Thanks

Someone told me they are on heat for up to seven consecutive days... let me know if anyone knows any different.

It's not unusual for a mare to come into heat within a day or so of being in a new barn with geldings or even another mare who may be in heat. It lasts a few days and happens every 28 to 30 days. I simply ignore it and they eventually settle in - she'll let them know if they get too close.
