Is there anything else other than Regu-Mate for marish mares?

My mare and I have come to an understanding about her abilities, stamina, etc. I have had her about 1.5 yrs and bought her knowing full well we would not pursue adventures other than within the back yard. However, she spent a lot of time as a broodmare (she's 18 now) and in the summer time she seems to be flirtatious or in heat every other week it seems. Now that winter is coming, she is not so bad but she was quite keen on a gelding pasture mate just a few weeks ago. Not wanting to be seperated from him, lifting her tail, etc. Hollering and pacing when he left the pasture to be ridden. She carried on quite a bit.

When she is in heat, she is oblivious to anything other than her horsey pals. It makes for not very enjoyable riding. She can get down right obstinant sometimes.

Any suggestions? I board her and the set up is not condussive to her being pastured with only mares. I wish she could but that is not going to happen.

I've heard lots of things online about Mare Magic but I only have experience with Regumate.

I tried all the herbal type stuff including Mare Magic and it had no effect at all
I have 1 mare out of 5 that is so flirty when in season she drives the others mad with her unwanted attentions and was only going to get herself kicked. She is totally fine to ride and handle when in season in fact she is overly smoochy and cuddly, never cranky or unwilling to work
I had her on Regumate this summer and honestly it was worth every penny - the other horses agreed!!

I have heard of a lot of people having great success with having a marble put in their mares. I have pondered it for my mare and still am rolling the idea around a bit. I am only hesitating as we are thinking of breeding her. So it may still happen yet.

Now that is a pretty funny play on words.. LOL

The marble may work.

The other thing to consider is spaying. Done with the horse standing up as I understand it. You might find the cost not so unreasonable.

^^^ I would say in a younger mare its going to be cheaper than regumate long term
It all depends on if you would ever want to breed from the mare

Spaying is not a cheap option and can be a bit of a risky surgery in older mares from my understanding on it. I could be wrong though.

I didn't even notice my play on words lol. Now that its pointed out it is kinda funny
