Moody Mare

These two horses really didn`t like the addition of Butterscotch the toy.

Moody Mares


Mares often have the reputation of being moody, bad tempted and difficult to manage. This is often unfair but in some instances a mare can have behavioural problems caused by a hormonal imbalance or problems stemming from their ovulation.

A common hormonal product for moody mares is progesterone which is often prescribed by your vet, the most common form of progesterone is Regumate. Regumate is a feed supplement given orally, usually with the mares feed but in some instance you syringe it into your mare`s mouth. A popular option to suppress oestrus behavioural problems, the mare will be required to be kept on it and if you stop feeding it to your mare the problems may return.

If your horse is competing in any sport it is important to ensure any supplement meets the sports governing bodies, for example for race horses they must not have had Regumate for 8 days before they race (this is correct as of the time of the article being written, please check with the governing body and your vet before using any supplements for your horses).

In extreme cases of moody mares their are surgical options such as removing your mares ovaries, this can be an expensive and dangerous operation and should only be considered as a last resort, discuss it with care with your vet. In Australia their is something called an Equity vaccine, which has been used to treat moody mares, a single injection lasts for two year. This has been said to help improve badly behaved mares, although it is a pretty new treatment, so longer term analysis of the treatment is still ongoing, including the possibilities of adverse effects on your mare reproduction / breeding cycle in the future.

We hope you have found this article interesting and helpful, but if you are having behavioural problems with your horse seek expert help and advice from a professional, in some cases they can test your mare and give you a conclusive answer.
