Regu-mate will prevent a mare from coming in heat. It is not without side effects and it is not cheap.

we've only had a couple mares over the years that were really bad, rasberry leaves fixed the problem, but spaying may be a good option. neither of my current mares show at all when they come in heat. i love mares and wont willingly own another gelding.

Hmm, well maybe the local vet school would like to have a look at her then? It's not a common thing over here for things like these so perhaps I could take her down (its only an hour)

She was much better last night, very respectful and back to the DJ we know and love.

The other thing I'm wondering is do pregnant mares get moody like that or not? I am somewhat suspiscious(sp?) as before we got her she was paddocked with colts who "didn't know they were colts yet" - yeah right, one of them was 3 -_- so I might just take her down to the vet school for the 5th year students to look at (when they specialise in a discipline) and get them to do the works.

And see what they would like to do, it may just be the grass that is the added problem also, I know that if I don't control Mitchell's grass intake he goes loopy, but not to the extent of being like that.
