There are many signs that people look for to see that spring is actually arriving. For me, the first sign comes from my muse Illy. It’s called transitional estrus, in other words, she is in heat! The first spring heats are the strongest and worst. Illy show no bones about hiding it either. I love my mare dearly, however this time of year, she turns into a complete hormonal monster!! 🙁
We are currently investigating some different hormone therapies to combat the situation…until then, I am posting the above pic of her taken at a horse show last year…sleeping ringside…quiet and sane…:) can’t wait for that horse to return!!
