You could try Mare Magic or another herbal remedy to try to balance the mare's hormones. I believe some horses have pain with cycling just as humans do, and some horses deal with pain poorly by taking out their angst on whoever or whatever comes near.

Sometimes horses have polycystic ovaries like humans, which causes their cycling to become irregular. I've known a couple of people who have spayed their mares, but in order for it to be effective you need to do a full hysterectomy. That is very expensive, somewhere in the range of $2,000.

Putting the mare down seems extreme for something that is almost certainly related to a physical issue or else related to her young age and lack of experience. Many people, including myself are more than willing to deal with mares that become temperamental when they are in heat, and some mares get better as they age. One of my mares had serious issues when she was in heat until about age 16, then it began improving. The other one is just temperamental all the time, LOL.

If your mare is registered and has good bloodlines, consider selling her on the Arabian Horse Association website classifieds or Dreamhorse. She may end up doing better as a broodmare, or after having a foal, or just with an experienced mare and Arabian owner. Quite possibly she would make a good endurance horse, and lots of exercise can help with hormones too.

She is the type of horse I like to work with and an arab to boot. Ah well.
Maybe you just need to give it a little bit of time and find somebody like this and offer her for very cheap or even free, if you knew she was going to a good home. Be honest with the buyer and you could find somebody who like a challenge of a horse.

One other thing don't take horses as gifts...when my horse got hit by a car my parents wanted to help me and they thought that buying a 3 OTTB was a good horse. I had to explain how that wouldn't be the horse for me but I really really appreciated their gesture.

I'm located in South East Pennsylvania if you are interested. Haha

I am thinking about trying to get her to a breeder. She is a registered arabian, I have her papers here if anyone can tell me a little more about her, I hope the picture turns out alright, its the biggest I can get it.

Her father is Saud El Qahtahn and her mother is RA Fazzara, if that helps anyone. I would look them up on the Arabian Horse Association website but I do not have a subscription to the data source.

Here is what a friend of mine on facebook said about her lines:
" I don't know the earlier generations but I know some of the older ones...she looks to be heavily babson bred..

On both sides she goes back to *Fadl ...Fadl is Fa-Serr's sire, a heavy influence on Saud El Ebony and Princeton Laylah...actually pretty much everyone appears to be;) Several of them also go back to Nazeer who is considered to be another Foundation sire. (Fadl is considered one of the original babson foundation stallion...the babson horses are SE/al khamsa).

Princeton Laylah (on the dams side) is triple bred Fadl and he also goes back to Turfa who was incredibly influential but her progeny are not considered SE by the diehards.

She's actually related to Splash through Fa-Serr, Faaris and Adhem (who is another big black influence)...Splash is pretty heavily babson bred several generations back (he is about 80% egyptian but has more crabbet influence than she does)."

She is a pretty mare.. Very dark bay, no white markings, nice conformation, and she is very intelligent. She is just too spirited for me. If anyone has any information about her Arabian heritage, i'd really appreciate it.

Thank you all for your responses. And thelauren, my mother is ok thankfully. She has a very large bruise under her left breast that is about 6inches in diameter, but other than that she is ok.

Icebreaker - since you have had your mare for about 3 years and you mentioned that she has "recently become mare-ish" I would suspect a physical reason for her change in behaviour. With any horse, any sudden change in behaviour is a sign of some sort of pain.

It seems to me that she is in pain and that it is very likely a problem with her reproductive system at the root of it. I would definitely have your vet out sooner rather than later. She could have an infection or a cyst on an ovary.

Once the physical problem is resolved, she should return to her normal self.
