My filly is now 5 months old and all weekend she has acted like she is in heat--lifting tail and winking. Showing to our gelding and to the neighbors geldings. Is this possible? COuld she actually be in heat?? At what age does a "normal" filly start showing heat? She is very large for her age--
Dorthy I also have a filly that was absolutely shameless, right at 5 months old. She was in a pasture next to my yearling colts, boy she had them going bonker so I had to move them. I have a friend that is a vet tech at the University of Florida Large Animal Vet clinic, she said no way, not possible but I had a credible witness. Glad to know I don't have the only "Shameless Hussy" in the U.S. She was so cute as a baby. http://i200.photobucket.com/albums/aa170/hacooke/CHEERIO2EMAIL-1.jpg The funny thing is her mother is a silent heat mare, I was hoping she would take after her mom since she's going to be a show pony.
