What do you suggest for my my alpha mare who is showing aggression in a boarding situation?
Question: I have a mare that has a history of showing aggression towards other horses in a boarding situation. The mare showed improvement being on Regumate which would suggest a hormonal imbalance. Should I give herMare Ease for its estrogen detoxifying properties. Can you please go into detail about each ingredient and how it effects the hormones?
Dr. Kellon: I wouldn't suggerst Mare-Ease. There is nothing about her behavior or history that suggests this is related to sex hormones. Regumate does not fix imbalances, it creates one - high progesterone. Most horses of both sexes respond to this by becoming "subdued" or depressed.
