My filly did something weird to my mare?

I have a 3 year old QH filly and a 15 year old Ten Walker mare (not related to each other) and when I was walking my mare to the back pasture on a lead rope, my filly attempted to mount my mare. Well, that's what it looked like anyways.shock:
I have never seen that happen before and the two get along really well. I was wondering is this because of the fillies age?
Has this happened to anyone else before and does anyone think its dangerous?

My very dominant mare has done this to my girlfriend's mare as well a few months ago. I don't think it's anything to really worry about, just confusing hormones.

Younger mares and fillies can do this with the weird hormones kicking in, or a dominant issue. However if she continues to act studdish over all theres a good chance of ovarian tumors, in which case contact a vet.

It could be a dominance thing, a playful thing or as someone else mentioned, hormones. Those dang things can make horses completely goofy, especially mares lol.
I've only ever seen one mare do that before & it was actually the mare she mounted who was in heat at the time. She was also very young & some get confused lol

hmm, she seems fine now, except for acting silly lol but that's not unusual for her.
