I have a maiden 5 yr old pony mare, who is acting very strange. I am not sure what is going on with her.
Firstly, I have a welsh mare, who came into standing heat Jan 21st, could have been transitional, but she has taken in January before. I did not breed her. However I did tease her to my stallion to chart her cycle.
At the same time, my pony mare started to show to the stallion. I teased her and she showed so I covered her. She was also covered on Jan 23rd. She didnt seem to show after that so I figured she was done. Didnt tease again.
Then on Feb 11th ( 19 days later) she acted in heat and bred again. On the 13th she didnt act heatish. However on the 14th My welsh mare came back in to heat. I teased her on the 14th 15th and the 16th. Bred her today on the 17th. I also teased the pony mare who was not acting heatish.
Then today The pony mare started to show to the stallion, not this am but AFTER he bred the welsh mare. But it wasnt a strong showing just a small pee... he wasnt interested at all.

So my question is this... Whats going on with the pony mare? Is she showing heat to the stallion today, 5 days after he last covering because the other mare is in? Could it be that she is just acting submissive because he is covering the lead mare? Is she just transitional? I dont think she is in heat, or certainly the stallion would be interested. What reasons could she be acting so strange?
Both cycles she bred, she showed very small signs of heat, nothing like I would expect, and the stallion only covered her 2 times. Then just didnt seem interested.
So I am not sure what to think If these two mares are cycling at the same time or maybe the pony mare is phantom cycling , if there is such a thing so to speak...
