Mares in season help!

Guess what Sabrina is in Season and found herself a boyfriend really flirting. Now has anyone any tips to calm her down as Mares are a newish problem for me as had a gelding for many years, then Lara who was not too bad but Sabrina thats a different thing altogether.

Oestress from NAF is very good, works on my chestnut TB mare, who is a total flirt!

I did try Naf Oestress and it did not seem to make much of a difference, but then I had nothing to check it against as I am unaware how bad she is, will have a go at trying all again but its an unknown area for me.

Oh I do sympathise.  I've had a few mares but this year Sami has been awful.  Nothing nasty but bucking if her "new best friend" a mare, went away, I stopped riding for two weeks and started feeding her stroppy mare - sorry maker has gone out of my mind - she seems much better and has stopped spraying and making a mess of her stable and much better has stopped loving the other mare.

I've found Frisky Mare Plus (Global Herbs) sorts my extremely flirty, squirty mare out.  She gets so bad without it she can't walk a few paces in front of any horse (male or female) without squirting - yuck!  Tehya does well on Lunar Eclipe (Simple System) but I don;t think she is quite as overt as Missy albeit that she goes very moony!  If she's really bad behaviourally you might need some advice from your vet but their solutions tend to be expensive! ;o)

I am making a note of all this, as many of us are having the same problems, what also has been said and I don't know but taking her off Alfafa products will help as well, This is a very interesting project and will tackle this as when I was at work with Engineering projects. The only way is by finding out and asking getting information from those who have met up with this problem but sometimes is the blind leading the blind, but not in this case, it really comes over that I should have kept to geldings but when I have a horse I will keep it for life. Mares seem to be harder to bond with taking longer but possibly stronger when they do.

I feel mares are harder to bond with ... having said that my little 3 year old is so attached to me it's unreal, comes when she's called and an angel in all ways the easiest horse to deal with like a little lamb. But I've owned her since 10 months old so I think that time does make a difference to win trust.

Re: Mares in season help!

Mares are harder to bond with but when you do get the bond it is so strong, I wouldn;t swap my gang for anything - well maybe Welshie!!

Alfalfa contains naturally high levels of calcium, potassium, magnesium and iron, as well as vitamins B12, A, C, D,E and K.  As we all know magnesium is a natural calming mineral so combining pure alfalfa (no molasses or added bits and pieces) with a calming herbs like chamomile and red clover  will work wonders.  Red Clover can be slightly sedatory and I know a lot of mares that are on this herb from Spring to Autumn, whereas Chamomile is used more for calming and relieving stress, it is also for the girls out here good for menstural cramps which is probably why it works well with mares coming into and in season.

And there ends todays lesson on herbs and their properties
