I have 10 Tb maiden mare that when she is in heat she tries to kill the stallion. What can I do to get her bred for 2002 breeding season. She has been sedated, hobbled, you name I have tried it. She is a friendly mare until she see a Stallion. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jeanette- I had one like her just this last breeding season. Not fun, for sure. If you look back in the problem breeding topic, there are many posts that would help.
Teasing is everything with a mare like that. She needs to learn what to expect from the stallion. A teasing stud that can touch her over the fence, and start a mounting motion while she is safe, will do wonders. I have responded in detail in earlier posts.
She is concerned for her safety, and is smart to be so. Teaching her otherwise is your best bet.
Thanks kelly, she is in a pasture next the one of the stallions. The old AQHA stallion talks all the time to mare. They can touch noses. Even when she is in heat she does not show any signs of any kind. TB breeders, have been saying to just to put in the pasture with the stallion and let nature do it's thing. But, I don't what my 21yr old stallion to get hurt. And my 7 yr TB stallion has not bred yet. I will keep tiring to get bred. I will start again in feb. She will be in the pasture next the stallion. The old man is a lover and great for maiden mares. But I don't what him hurt. Thanks I will keep you posted.....

Jeanette- I think that you are wise to not to turn her in with the old romeo, or the young stud.
I have found that some mares exhibit an exaggerated heat after given a shot of lutelyse. You may want to try it, given at the appropiate time, no harm done.
You may also want to arrange a teasing wall, where she can be stimulated at both the front and her rear. I have found that an opening at the corresponding height will allow for more aggressive teasing directly to the genital area. It will make a difference!
Good luck and let us know what's going on.
