My two year old mare is showing all the classic signs of heat--urinating, breaking down, etc., with our stallion. We live in Kansas; it's been warm, but obviously the amount of daylight is typical for January. Could she really be in heat or is it some sort of pretend behavior? Thanks, Ellie

She could be cycling or she could be transitional. Evaluation per ultrasound or a progesterone assay (possibly several) should tell you.

I have a coming three year old mare that has been showing signs of heat every day since last fall and she has become difficult to keep weight on. Could a filly this young have hormonal issues or a possible tumor on the ovary or a cyst? She shows to the stallion every day without fail.

It is most likely that this filly's behaviour is a display of submission. You would need to confirm ovulatory status before considering other causes as possibilities.
