Moody Mares (Steady Mare)
Moody Mares Can Find Great Relief in Nature's Medicine Chest.
Moody mares can be a nightmare and not necessarily recognised for what they really are. If you think your mare is having pre menstrual tension (PMT) then that could be exactly what your moody mare is suffering from. If your mare is showing the typical signs of irritability and mood swings on a cyclic basis, then it is likely that she is experiencing the symptoms and suffering from the nagging pains of pre menstrual tension. Did you know that herbs can help rebalance the hormone levels and regulate the menstrual cycle in moody mares?

A handful of herbs may stop your mare being a handful
Steady Mare is an organically certified blend of Chaste Tree, Chamomile and Vervain in an organic cider vinegar base.

Chamomile and Vervain are relaxing herbs that will ease away stomach cramps that are making your horse oversensitive to the touch.
Chaste Tree is also a useful herb for preparing your mares for covering as well as for relieving tension. Bring tranquility to your mare today. Steady Mare is easily administered either directly into the mares mouth with a syringe or via her food.
It is fed at a rate of 20 mls per day for an average size pony and a 1 litre bottle will give you 50 days dosage which is great value for money.
What Some Of Our Customers Have To Say:
"Just a note to say what a difference I've found in my mare since she had her first bucket of Steady Mare. When I first looked at the herbs I thought "no way will she eat that" because she doesn't like any other calmers I have tried, but she loves it. Her overall outline is softer & she is working a lot better. Normally she hates the clapping, music and loud speakers at shows but I have just got home from the NZ Grand National Champ Show at Rangiora where she went very well. "
No More "mareishness"! (from Tried & Tested Horse & Pony Magazine, March 2003)
"When editor Joan Gilchrist asked me to trial Brookby Herbs' Steady Mare Herbal Blend, she did so with a wry smile. My mare is well known amongst friends as the old **** and can pull the most wicked faces at a 2 horse-lengths distance! Even her kind paddock mate ducks for cover when the MARE is back in the paddock.
I started giving her Steady Mare at a time when spring growth was beginning & spring hormone levels rising -changing nature would be a big prescription! I didn't notice any instant behavioural change, but then I didn't expect it. It wasn't until I looked back on some of the rides that I realised the mare's behaviour was definitely modified for the better.
In her case, it took a few weeks on Steady Mare before there were any changes, but when she stopped taking it the reversion was pretty rapid. She is now back on the blend and we are all the happier for it."
" When my mare is in season she becomes more explosive to ride, she is also less willing to work 'over her back' which spoils her dressage performance. I have found that "Steady Mare" has kept her more consistent in her temperament, she is also more willing to work when in season. This means I can now compete when she is in season, knowing she will be doing her best for me!"

This is a common question we are asked and often it will be a personal choice based on your individual mare and style of feeding. The liquid extract is more concentrated and gets into the blood stream quicker though some people prefer to mix the dried herbs into their mares existing hard feed and enjoy the smell of the dried herbs. The liquid blend is in a organically certified cider vinegar base and is more concentrated than the dried blend with a few extra herbs such as rosehips and kelp. The liquid extract can be poured over your mares feed or easily syringed directly into the mouth.
