We're happy to answer questions for you, but we need to know what you're looking for. For instance, How does a barren mare act? I could have said, "Like any other mare." or "Normal.". I have no idea what you are wanting.
+ have said, "Like any other mare." or "Normal.". I have no idea what you are wanting.
A barren mare can cycle just like any other mare, she can be a hussy, she can be modest, she can have 'silent' heats, or no heats at all or she may have stopped cycling altogether. The only way to know for sure she's barren is to have a complete breeding work up done with blood work checking her hormone levels, follow her on ultrasound to find out if she's building breedable follicles, corpus luteum or ????? or you can do it the old fashioned way and breed her every time she comes in (if she does) and see if she catches. After 2 or 3 years of not catching and/or catching but not settling, it's pretty safe to assume she's barren. Does she have a particular attitude or something she does to say to the world, "HAY I'M BARREN.", no.
Your other questions are the same, they are way too broad for any answer to be very valuable or pinpoint something for you to look for.
