Dr. Joann Kouba, equine reproduction specialist at Kansas State University walks us through some of the quirks of mares. Ever wonder why some mares show estrus more strongly than others? Are all mares good mothers? What do you do if your mare is not a good mother? And worst case, what if you end up with an orphan foal? We cover all of this plus make up a few hypotheses for fun!
