I searched the board, but the most recent thread I found on the topic was from 2012. Has anyone here had their mare(or know a mare) that has been spayed(the more recently the better). What behaviors was the mare exhibiting before being spayed to warrent it being done? Did the behavior change after the surgery? What did the procedure entail? I assume it needs to be done at a clinic, how long did the mare need to stay at the hospital, how long was the rehab? How much did the surgery cost? After I get my tax return, I'm going to have the vet out to do some hormone tests and discuss her behavior. A friend of mine suggested regumate however I don't want to handle something so dangerous, and its so expensive. Spaying I'm sure would be cheaper in the long run.
