Excessive Squealing/Whinny

My normally quiet mare was squealing her lungs out when I got her out of her stall today. Anyone have any experience with why this may be? My theories are:

1) She is in season
2) Change in the weather. (Beginning of warm weather)

She is stabled in her own stall and has never done this before that I have seen. (Owned her since October) She doesn't really have any barn buddies. I have never seen her call for other horses, and she is normally very quiet, even when other horses are screaming for feed. It was not feeding time and she had some hay in her stall. Don't quite understand why it's happening. All I know is it is ANNOYING

Yep, it's Spring!....she's in heat. Mare's in estrus cycles normally last 4-7 days, (with ovulation happening every 21 days), so be prepared for some "mare moodiness" during that time. Peeing and leaning on you while you are brushing her tail or hind end is normal, as is lots of squealing.

Ahhhh great. I just started a lease this week to a newer rider. How thrilled she is going to be that her first week of riding is going to be on a PMS-ing mare. LOL

Thanks for your post Juna!
