My mare is the opposite of some of the posts I have seen on here. She is untouchable (basically) when she is NOT in heat. You got to touch her and she squeals and stomps her foot. When working in the round pen she squeals when you ask her to change directions and if you put a lot of pressure on her she will pee and squeal like a submissive mare does to the alpha mare. In Heat, Sweet angel except too much of a lover on you! wants to lean on you. When you approach her stall and say her name she squats and pees (giving me a complex hehehe) you can touch her, saddle her and go for a ride, no problem other than if you pet her and tell her good girl she squats and pees again. NOW the strange part. If I bring my stud over to see her the mares reaction she pins her ears and turns to kick at him, every day of heat cycle. Never acts interest in him AT ALL! I take the stud away and walk back to her and she is on her toes peeing at me. She has never been bred and is 7 years old. Any ideas?

I'd have her ultra sounded and see what's going on. I have had 2 mares that acted similar to your mare, one had a folicle that hung up, would not ovulate. Gave her a HCG shot and everything was perfect. The other I didn't own but had in for training, she had a huge cyst on one ovary and the other was like a small rock, she was 4yrs. old. I sent her home for the owner to sort out, at that time it was a waste of money to spend on training her. They ended up using her as a pasture potato, if she was mine I would of had her spayed.

I agree on the ultrasound. I've heard of some very similar mares whose issues were resolved by discovering a problem (usually fixable) by ultrasound.

Thanks hedgerow that is the conclusion I was coming too also. One vet said that a follicle would not stay stuck over the winter non-heat season. But I think we will ultrasound her.

I'll let the experts have the final say... but IMO and IME that is totally false (that a follicle would "not stay stuck through fall/winter"). Could be wrong though.
