I have a new 8 year old paint mare (she has foaled twice before, several years ago)who comes into heat about every 3 weeks and is horrible to ride when in heat and acts up around other horses squealing and kicking. She does not do this when she is not in heat. She is in heat now in January! I've heard about regumate, but I think its too expensive for me to afford. Any ideas?? Is it possible to "spay" a mare? Any alternatives to regumate?
Thanks for the help!!
Amy

Hi Amy,
Yes, it is totally possible to spay a mare. A lot of folks with show horses spay them for the very fact that they don't want the mare acting out during show season.
You may want to talk to your vet about alternative hormones and see what he suggests.

I have also heard about a product called Feisty Mare, but have never tried it myself. Although I have a 3 yo I may experiment on...

Hello,
We just had 2 of our mares spayed. The first one was done in December of 05 and the second one just came home a week ago. The surgeries went just fine and both horses are very healthy (our vet did the "standing type" of surgery). The first mare was so rank before the surgery that people thought she was an ill mannered stallion. Now two months later, after the hormones have started to subside, she is a sweet wonderful horse! I'm so very glad we had it done! But I will caution you...if you do decide to get a horse spayed, please find a vet that does it on a regular basis and is VERY comfortable with the procedure! Our vet does several dozen a year and he recommends that everyone find a vet that does it a lot because of the various possible complications that could occur. As a matter of fact that is why our second mare didn't get spayed at the same time as the first one... he tried but she started bleeding too much and he had to stop and close her up. We waited until now to try again. So you need a vet that KNOWS when to stop or do something differnt before serious problems can occur. I will say though.. it is worth the expense and risk! We are very happy with them.
Mary
