Cool Mare in season in January

I bought my mare in June last year and I only had her a week and she came into season and the misbehaviour started. I put my mare on Oestress and this helped her behaviour and moodiness. I stopped giving her it Sept/Oct and she has been fine. However, I noticed yesterday that she is in season again! In January?! Is this normal? She has been more challenging to work with over the last few weeks. Do you think she needs to be on Oestress all year round? Any advice would be helpful.

Most mares I have have had their cycles year round.
Not just when it's warm.

I've had some bred when its cold out without the lights or anything.

Some mares will come into heat If there's a new gelding around or if you have a studdish gelding.

What is Oestress? My mare will be in season year round. She is on Mare Magic everyday. It works wonders and is completely natural, not some random drug.

I used MM (although I went to my local health food store and bought a few pounds of raspberry leaves and fed her those. It's the same thing as MM and ALOT cheaper and its the exact same thing. I think I payed less then $15 for a pound of raspberry leaves when MM is like crazy expensive!)

Many mares can show signs of heat year round, but that does not mean that they have viable follicles capable of ovulation. OP if your mare is particularly hard to deal with, I would suggest talking to your vet about regumate, marbling, or an ovariectomy (spaying). Regumate is not a cheap option and it must be handled correctly. In the long run, marbling or surgery would likely be more cost effective.

See I only pay $15 every 60 days for the mare magic. I do plan to eventually get down to the health food store but where I am at anything labled as "organic" is 4 times the normal price. It depends where you are as to what price you will pay for anything. And my time is worth something too lol. It would be a pain to go the complete opposite way as everything else just for some raspberry leaves lol.

Edit: to reply to CCH's comment. My vet wanted to try regu-mate with my mare as she had become horrendous and it was constant but I wanted to try a cheaper option first (and safer). The mare magic worked like a charm and as long as I don't run out I don't have any problems.
