  1. Mare acting a bit off?

    I'm just worried because she hasn't really been showing that many signs that shes going through her cycle.. No winking.. She hasn't been talking much to the other horses, although thats pretty normal for her, usually when she goes through he cycle she's very um, talkative. I'm just wondering if she could've been going through a silent heat. It was odd, her flank area was sunken in, and rather strange looking. For some reason I think I remember seeing this when I was in florida with her, but then it just went away.. And she was very touchy around that area, it doesn't seem to be as bad this morning though and she doesn't seem to care as much when I touch it? Edited to add: When I had my mom look at it, she said Fancy looked normal and didn't really see anything wrong.. And that I was just over reacting(which I tend to do alot with Fancy, I'm always worreid somethings going to happen, or that shes not feeling well.. Typical horse lover . But she said she didn't think anything looked off.. So maybe I was just a bit out of it.. I'm just not used to her being so sensitive around that area, but maybe it was just an odd cycle.

  3. Mare acting a bit off?

    Yeah, since she's been sore around that area I've mostly been barebacking it, and working on light stuff. Thankyou for your info. Edited to add: Does anyone else have any experience or knowledge they'd like to share? Edited a second time to add: She has had one foal before, Who's nearing the age of three. I own her as well, but she hasn't come in yet, and if she has it's been silent and I haven't been able to tell. If that helps any, so she's not a maiden. Thanks guys.

  5. Mare acting a bit off?

    Mornin' guys , I just have a few questions to ask. Lately, my mare has been acting..well, a little different than she normally does. I think it has something to do with her heat cycle and the weather. One day its like, a high of 92 here, with a low of 75, and then the next we've got a low of 34 with a high of 60 something... My mare seems a little touchy around her flank and stifle area.. Shes a bit moody, and witchy as if she was in season, but I think its a silent heat.. My trainer said sometimes when the weather like that it can upset their cycle a bit and they'll sometimes not feel well, or become moody. She's a nine year old quarter horse, any ideas? Or anymore information you could give me?

  7. Sand.

    Thank you all.. Fancy has a pretty tough gut, she's never coliced before, and I've had her for almost 7 years.. Is there any way I could purchase Sandclear online? My vet is coming out this week for her shots, so I'll see what he says, and if he think she needs it I'll get some.. Just gotta know from where. Edited for spelling.

  9. Sand.

    Ok - Let me start off by saying that my mare was on in a pasture that was nothing but sand for around three months.. She got plenty of hay, looked good, and was on grain. Never had any colic problems or anything. Now we've switched her over to a place that has 7 acres of really nice grass with one other horse, and its just them.. They are stalled during the day, out at night to preserve coats..There isn't any sand in the new pasture. What I want to know is.. even though I never saw her really getting into the sand, I know there is a chance that she could have a bit in her. A mare that was from the same place recently coliced and they found out it was from a huge amount of sand in her. What's the best way to go about clearing out my mares system to make sure she doesn't have any left? Thanks guys!
