I have a stallion who is attached to a particular mare, and I have to keep them stalled or pastured next to eachother all the time. This is getting to be quite a hassle though, and I really need to move the mare. The mare lets a stallion breed her wherever, whenever (she's quiet the slut), but she can't concieve. Would it be okay to pasture them together, and just let them "breed" since he can't get her pregnant?

Your stallion needs a good workout to refocus his priorities and some manners taught! Turning him out with the mare is a bad idea, the studish behavior will increase to the point, that he is no longer manageable and be a danger for any handler. Furthermore an infertile mare can carry diseases and those could be spread to your stallion.
The alternative would be to castrate the stallion, then you can turn them out together!

He has manners, and is an all around very well behaved stallion. We show him, trail ride him with other mares, etc. but he's just attached to this one mare.

Hi there,
I can't believe that there are some people out there who are so quick to always tell someone that if their stallion has a certain problem that the "quick fix" is to have them gelded. Stallions are stallions, and horses are horses, they all have their little quirks. If someone told me to just castrate my stallion, just because he is attached to another horse, I'd be a little miffed, to say the least. That is not always an option or a quick fix for that matter.

I think it's great that your stallion has a buddy, even if it is a mare. All horses are social animals and need a friend.

I also have a mare that for some reason will not conceive, but she does let a stallion breed her when she is in heat. I do let my stallion run with her in the pasture, and I have not had a problem with them at all. My stallion is also a very well behaved and well mannered guy, and the only time he ever attempts to breed her is when she will let him. Now, I must also add that my mare is not an aggressive mare in any way, and she does not kick him when he does make advances toward her when she is not in heat. But he has seemed to have learned when she is not receptive, and he doesn't even attempt to mount her when she is not in heat. The most he will do is sniff and nicker. She will pin her ears and swish her tail and he then just walks away.

To the person who is so quick to tell this other person with the stallion to castrate him: I do not recall this person saying that her stallion has excessive studdish behavior, but you are telling the person that their stallion's "studdish behavior will increase to the point that he is no longer manageable."
It would be nice that before people give advice on this board, they would clearly read what the person asking the question has written.

I'am new to posting on this board but I read it all the time. I also believe that people should not be so quick to judge a stud not all studs are bad. and a stud needs a buddy the same as anyother horse and just because it is running with a mare doesn't mean that he will become unmanageable. and just because she can't conceive doesn't mean that she has a diease or infection. I also Have a stallion and he gets along with all my mares and colts and he is very manageable not a mean bone in his body. All animals need some kind of a buddy the same as people do. just like the post above please read the question before you answer and not be judgemental sorry just my two cents worth.
