Stubborn Mare in Heat!!!

Okay so I have a 9yr. old mare she is 15.3 hands and I and a trainer is training her she already feisty so when she goes into heat you could only imagine what she is like. I would like the following question answered plz: Does it do anything to a mare that would help them not go into heat or let it be "lighter" to put a copper pipe in her water bucket?????

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead.It's called a counter canter...A very advanced maneuver.

Old wives tale? I guess for every person who tells you it's bunk there will be a cowboy out there that will say it works.

I would want to discuss this with my vet. She could have medical issues with her "girl parts". He may recommend "mare marbles" or regumate to help her out.

What helped my mare was a serious change in diet. No sweet feed, no pelleted feed, no grain, and free choice grass hay. I feed her a mixture of alfalfa pellets, flax, and a vitamin supplement. I add in extra magnesium and b-vitamins to help with her "mareness." Not only is she less fiesty in general, but her heats are more managable too.

You can have custom blend you a vit/min mix in their flax base, with added magnesium. They don't charge for the custom work and shipping is free.
