My 2 year old stallion is interested in my 2 year old mares, they are cycling but he only mounts them and does not breed them. How can I get him to breed these mares that are in heat? Is there such a thing as a hormone shot for stallions to get them to perform better?

Just wondering why you would want to breed a 2 year old filly? I'm not sure what breed your horses are, but breeding at 2 seems aweful young to me. Also, depending on your stallion's actually birthday he may also be to immature to breed. If you really want your stallion to 'learn the ropes' I would try getting an older mare who knows the ropes she should be able to show him the way.

JJJ:
I would agree with Wendy, I would not be breeding 2 year old fillies!
I also have a 2 year old stud colt this year, and at first he was quite clueless on breeding. He would mount the mare without an erection and I thought he would never get it right.
But I put him with one of my seasoned mares while she was in heat, just in a corral one on one with each other.... and within a day's time, he was breeding her without any problems. She didn't settle, and I don't know if it was because it was her transition heat or if it is because he is too immature yet. I have since bred him to a different mare on a normal cycle and I'm currently waiting to see if she comes back into heat.
Putting a young stud with a seasoned older mare is the best thing you can do...she will teach him the ropes.
As for a hormone shot, it doesn't sound like that is what your colt needs. Because obviously his hormones are in working order if he is mounting mares. He just needs time to learn what it is that he's supposed to be doing.
I'm actually surprised that a 2 year old filly would let him mount them at all! I have a 2 year old filly that when she is in heat, she won't let my stud colt near her...of course when I see that she's coming into heat, I immediately put her in the barn where the colt can't breed her.
Just try an older mare...I think that might solve your problem.
Good luck.
