Vet was out on Thursday, and has put my very stroppy mare on
Regumate as he said she has hormonal problems. She has
to be on it for 10 days and he thinks after that she will be
fine, but she might have to be on it forever, or maybe just in
I was just wondering if anyone had ever tried it cause it's
really expensive, of course if my horse needs it she will have
it but I don't want to spend money on something that wont work!
I suppose I will just have to try it and see eh?
Anyway if anyone has any views on it, please let me know.

Pauline, I haven't tried Regumate but am using Moody Mare
herbs) for my girl. Huge tub for about £12 and the
difference in her is amazing, used to feel like bomb ready to
go off, would occasionally rear on way to field, charging
about like a loony (she is only 4!) but now a real sweetie to
do, ride (even have to use schooling whip to get her going
sometimes!!!) turn out, shoe.....

I have used Stroppy Mare before and my mare wouldn't touch it.
I don't think she liked the taste. It was herbs as well so I am assuming that moody mare would be the same, but
if anyone knew anything like this that was just a powder not
herbal I would like to try that.

How about 'Hormonise'? It's a liquid, so is absorbed into
blood quicker, and mixes into their tea easily - it's by
equine health and herbal, the ones that make 'No Bute' etc.
I used it last winter as my mare became very 'clingy' to
another mare. Max. recommended dose for about 3 months - then
gradually knock it down to just a minimum dose to keep it
'ticking over'. I found it really helpful, brought her self
confidence back, and stopped her spooking and neighing while
