It used to be difficult to tell when my mare was in heat -up until we moved to a boarding facility with lots of geldings. Now, she seems to go into heat every other week, and her heats are accompanied by what I call "love squirts" It's so nasty, and sticky, runs all the way down her legs. I can't get it off except with warm water, and even then it isn't completely removed, it just gets rubbed in and evened out and the hair gets all hard and crispy, lol. Its gross. Does anyone have a remedy for this? I have completely given up and just try and ignore it...i wish they made tampons for horses.
