How many of you have noticed a difference in your mare's attuide after being bred? My mare is ussually quite "hot" but since being bred about a month ago she has lost her hotness. I actually have had to wake her up! She's in great shape, maybe I should up her grain, that always seems to krank her:-)~

Mares go thru many hormone changes from day of birth till death, and of course pregnancy is like a roller coaster. She may not be hot now, but in a few months she could change, and change again. I had several mares that were normally friendly, but not lovey - half way thru they would get very standoffish, then become big lovers, then finally say - GO AWAY! It just depends on the mare, and being this is the first time, she is probably a little overwhelmed.

My mare is being like that. She's even nicer when she's in heat. She's one mare I wouldn't mind having in heat all the time because she's so nice to ride then. My vet even noticed the difference in her when she is prego. She said she's much more loving, so sweet.

The mares reaction to the stallion could indicate that she is either pregnant or not in estrus ("heat"). If you want to avoid injury to either of the animals, you would be well-advised to seperate them and have the mares cycle status and/or pregnancy status checked.

I read from other posts that behavioral changes are normal in pregnancy I suppose due to hormonal changes but just wondering if anyone else has experienced their mares becoming spooky--Our 10 year old mare is 5 months pregnant and is usually not afraid of anything-truly not spooking at anything, she has become very spooky almost dangerous to ride out of the arena because even a snap of a twig startles her. She bolted on me the other day and bucked(luckily I stayed on but the saddle horn got me good in the thigh)--I'm not even sure what scared her. This has come on very suddenly and I like to think it could be just a hormonal issue?? She also has kinda had an attitude lately too. I shooed her out of the barn yesterday and she ran around like a crazy wild thing bucking and galloping then would stop at the fence where I was at and turn her rump to me then run and buck some more.............not like her at all. She's usually very friendly and laid back--could it just be due to the pregnancy? There have been no changes in diet, pasture mates, riders, nothing else has changed for her

She could be having some vision problems. Also I think that EPSM can cause big unusual behavior changes. Might be worth it to get a vet out, this sounds like more than hormonal or weather changes.
