I study Zoology in the Christian-Albrechts-Universitšt in Kiel, Germany. We have studied Farm Reproduction and there was always mentioning of Mares ,,blinking.'' (I hope that this is correct English Translation.) But I never saw Pictures or Videos of it, so it confused me. Clitoris fastly moving in and out, but just the Clitoris? It is so strange. Does anybody have Videos or Pictures of Mares blinking? That would help clear this for me.
Also, in the Class there was mentioning of Mares in Heat urinating different Color, different Consistency Urine. Is this like how we urinate either clear or dark yellow Urine? Or is this different? Again if anybody have Videos or Pictures of Mares urinating ,,heated'' Urine which is different in Color and Consistency that would help clear this for me too.
This Board seems to have lots of Information. Too bad I do not read or speak English well. I hope you all understood me okay.
The image link works, although I tidied it up a bit There are instructions for adding links to be found in the help section of the web site, which might help you further.
The translation to English is not "blinking" but "winking".
The change in urine colour and consistency is due to an increase in estrogen levels within the urine (the estrogen being secreted by the developing follicle). The urine will become thicker in consistency (i.e. not clear like normal urine), and more yellow. I am not aware of pictures of this, but there is more discussion about the subject on this bulletin board.
I have a question and not sure where to post. My question is on my 7 yr old mare. She use to be nice and I was not scared of her at all, but about 1 yr ago I noticed that she was becoming more defiant. She also started acting like she was in heat all the time. The place where I board her said that every time they go in to feed her she starts peeing in the same spot and winking. I made sure that they did not have any stallions on the property before I moved her there so that can no be it. But if she is even around another horse she starts her stuff again. Today we put her in a small field to let her run and she tried to run through the fence! It was like she did not even see it. I think she was paying to much attention to the horses next to the other fence. They werent even aging her on. just watching her act stupid! Can someone help me figure this out. The boarders said that she might have cysts on her ovaries. Dont know.
You might want to have her reproductive tract evaluated by a veterinarian that specializes in equine reproduction. There are a couple of possibilities, including infection or a GCT that could explain some or all of the behaviour, and which might be treatable.
