Well Joy makes me laugh every day. Yesterday she hated me! She tired to kick me & wouldn't come when I call, ears pinned. Just a bad girl! Then to day, whinnies for me, follows me, runs the fence line when I leave. I did a little training... GOOD AS GOLD! Ha! She’s gonna be one moody mare! Goss I love her!


Any one else have 'funny' mares who change?

Once again I put on my flame proof suit. This is a noted trait of females of most species. Now pardon me whilst I go hide in the wood shed and clean my geldings harnesses.

ooh, Chantilly is the worst. When there is a stallion around (or a new mare) she kicks, screams, turns her butt to us with ears pinned. Little stinker. I cannot wait to breed her in a couple years. A very nice foal, AND a calmer mare when she is pregnant

My mares aren't too bad until close to delivering.

Geese- I am all woman and I have to agree. I always said it is easier to work with men than with women. Men don't get mad and hold grudges, they don't beat around the bush and they don't bite off you head if you ask for a pencil...yep, I do all those things, my students still love me...all except the one who lives with me and calls me mom!

Oh barnbum, if you ment Joy, shes only 6 months.. still a baby, so next to her off days, shes an amazing foal! Joy lets 2-3 years olds 'groom' her & pat her, & is almost boomproof!

I agree with you 100%
LOL! At least women could admit to it! I am glad I am a male, and never having to worry about that LOL

My mare is somedays onry, but I think its cute, what I like best is when she is juiced, I let her out and she runs and runs and runs, and FARTS LOL! I need to get her transfered into my name, and take her to the show, and put her in liberty, she would KICK BUTT! I will post pictures, when my computer is done being worked on!

C'mon guys mares arent that bad!

Barnbum has it right


I prefer a mare over a gelding any day - mares have so much more personality. None of my mares have ever been more ornery with me then a gelding and Ive had 6 mares now.

On the other hand, I dont put up with any ornery horse (Mare gleding stallion colt or filly) and they all know how quick I can turn into a you know what if they EVER think to throw a kick at me or pin those little ears and attempt a bite.

Your right Nicole, no one should promote that kind of behavior, cause one day its not going to be so cute, when your in a comma(SP) or got a horse that is biting you, and wont let go, I have only got bit once since the past two year I have owned minis, when I first got Magic she kinda nipped me, I just slitley popped her under her chin (you know what I mean) and said no, not once have I ever had that happen again, the other time she threatend to buck is when I was trying th get her to run, she just kinda bucked a little, I cant get made at her for that, cause that was my fault, but other than the the only other time I have been kicked is when she was playing around on a walk, I just kinda setled her down, it was not intentional! But horses can be dangerous(even minis) and it is something that people shouldnt just think is so cute(especially on a foal that is going to grow)cause one day its not going to be cute! I would take a mare over a gelding any day too, I am wierd though, I would probably take a stallion over a mare though LOL! I have a colt, and no mares that I can even breed him to, but he is going to stay a colt, cause i like stallions, and eventually I will have some mares to breed to him:)

I will take a mare any day. Yeah, they can be a little moody on occasion but I don't tolerate any misbehaving. After all I am the alpha mare on my place and we alphas don't have a sense of humor about some stuff. On the other hand I spoil my horses rotten but they also know the difference when the alpha mare rears her ugly head.

I love my stallions and they are more honest than the mares but I do treat them differently as they react differently.

Hey Geese, You got off pretty lucky this time!!!

So far, I've been lucky all the mares have been pretty even tempered with no mood swings.

The AQHA mare I sold a couple years ago, was even tempered, she was gritchy all the time (grumpy + b*tchy = gritchy), don't get me wrong she was a very nice mare, but gritchy was definitely her personality, I got along fine with her. She was awesome to ride. She is now happily owned my a 9 year old girl.

Her daughter has a very pleasing personality as does her granddaughter, and her son is a total puppy-dog, sweetheart of a gelding.

And, my 2 year old mini mare is just a doll. She's a pocket pet if there ever was one.

I have always had more mares than anything else and I love my mares. Haven't had any problems with them at all--they are even tempered. Actually they behave better than some geldings I know. I have 1 stallion and my mares/fillies. They all are very even tempered and I enjoy them all. I guess I enjoy my girls!
