I have a 14 yo Arabian mare, who due to conformational problems, will not ever be used as a broodmare. She has the heats from Hades. She bites at her side, more right than left, bucks and kicks and squeals. When she's showing, she could hit you from 5 ft, and has her tail up over her back the better part of the week. I tried some herbal remedies, they did nothing at all. The vet has suggested implanting hormones to stop her heats. I've never had this problem before, and I'm looking for pro's & con's, if anyone has anything to contribute. Thanks

Results of the hormone implants have been mixed, with some research projects indicating that they definitely didn't work (although I do know of clinical cases that have).

You might want to discuss with your vet the placement of a kids playing marble into the uterus. This was presented at the AAEP convention last year by Dr. Gary Nie, and appears to work in about 40% of mares for at least 90 days. It would certainly be a cheap alternative to implants if your mare was one of the succesfull 40%!
