Supplement for Mares!


I have a section A chestnut mare who is pretty marish and excitable.

I have put her on NAF Magic which is a calmer and this has worked quite well at chilling her out a bit, however she is still quite marish. She seems to come into season as soon as she sees a gelding! It is very difficult to exercise her with horses/ponies that she doesn't know as she is always squealing and kicking out - Not great when there are children around.

I was thinking of putting her on a supplement for mares as well as the calmer, is this safe to do? Mare supplements don't seem to work on there own! If so which mare supplement can you recommend? I was thinking of getting evening primrose oil for her, would this be better than a supplement?

Re: Supplement for Mares!

Naf oestress I have found very good, also it might be worth trying her on mag ox (primary ingredient in all calmers) -- it's far cheaper!!!
