My mare mounted another mare twice over 2-3 years ago, but she has never done it since. She didn't act studdy, she wasn't in foal, and she is not an aggressive/dominant mare at all.

From what you said, I think it would be best to call the vet. Better safe, than sorry.

I think the biggest difference is my mare is extremely dominant, I have had around 50-60 horses, and honestly couldn't think of a single one who would be able to take my mare on. Also, we had just gotten a new herd member for training and this really brought this behavior out. She doesn't hump or anything like that, just jumps up on. Maybe something she's picked up from the past? Anyways, from what her previous owner said, she's in no way homosexual. Before she was pregnant she wanted nothing more than a stud on her, I'm not concerned as she's only had this happen a couple times, and once I'm working with her, in no way does she act like a stud. From what I've read, it's only a combination between her dominance and being pregnant. I'll update if anything changes.

So you still aren't contacting a vet despite the well informed information you were given about potentially lethal medical conditions that could be causing this behavior?
