im planning to send my mare to be bred in march.
i have been told she will need to be kept warm and have around 16hours light a day for 90 days meaning i start in decmber 1st. obviously i can keep her well rugged and in good condition.
my livery yard owner is starting to be abit awkward about lighting up the stable though
however how effective is lighting the stable up overnight? ive heard someone say that it doesn make any difference?!

any help appreciated!

The warmth factor is not terribly important. The light factor is all important. In other words, if you put lots of rugs on the mare, and no extra lighting, you will have a warm non-cycling mare. OTOH, if you have extra lighting, but no rugs, you will have a cold mare that is cycling - and in fact even colder, as she will shed out her winter coat even though it is still cold weather. To induce early cyclicity, you need to convince the mare that it is in fact spring (even though it is still the middle of winter). Nature tells the mare that by the amount of daylight there is - in the height of summer of course there are longer days. Unfortunately, if the mare thinks it's spring, she will also lose her winter coat.

Take a look at the article on this site about inducing early estrus in the mare.
