I have had success with hormone calming supplements (rather than calmers) for my mare. Are you in the UK? I found Oestress by NAF was a good one, giving raspberry leaves starting early in the year (before seasons started) and continuing right though also helped (I didn't give both together).

What do they start doing, that they don't do when not in season.
Could it actually be the spring grass, coupled with more turnout, or are you out all the time.

I tried lots of different things with madam over the years. Valerian cordial by Lincoln is okay, she does seem to respond to that. But not in an overly dramatic way, and I have read that at first it can make some horses worse for a while (it didn't with her). I haven't used it in a while but I do keep a bottle in stock.
