Been told the mare has just shown signs of being in season over the weekend [first one of the year].

Say, going as a rough average, how long till her next season/when will it be? And when would one be that would be nearer the end of June time? [again, going by a rough average, I know it's not accurate in any way].


If that makes sense to anyone. Stuff like that makes my head spin and I don't want to have a complete blonde moment miscalculating.

Thanks in advance!

My mares always went in the heat around every 3-4 weeks in the summer. I hardly ever saw them in heat during colder months from november to about march.

Average time from ovulation to ovulation is 21 days. Longer for some, shorter for others. If she just started showing heat over the weekend, that would put ovulation by mid to late week and you can figure from there.

Some will flirt especially if they aren't around stallions all the time, virtually any time they see one. Flirting and standing still for breeding can be two totally different things though. Almost every one of my mares is on a solid 21 day schedule by this time of the year. I do have stallions though so they just aren't impressed unless the hormone triggers are working.
