I have an 10 yr old Standardbred stallion I'm crossing to a 9 yr old belgian mare. When I first introduced them she had no problem letting him mount her. Then after 3 days he gets an erection and acts like he's going to mount her. Then all of a sudden he just loses interest in her and wanders off, smelling her urine and manure piles.
He appears to have a hemotoma on his underside; I wonder if this is preventing him from mounting her. Are there any other reasons he isn't mounting her now, and are there any suggestions to help him along?

Do you know where the hematoma came from? It seems quite possible that it came from him being kicked by the mare, and that would definitely act as a "show stopper"!!!

Alternatively, if you know that the hematoma is not related to a breeding injury, then it simply may be causing it to be too uncomfortable for him to breed.

When we first put them together She got nasty with him. But it didn't stop him. He mounted her for 2 days in a row.

Well, my guess is you're now seeing the reason why pasture breeding can be far from ideal - at least it's just a hematoma and not a broken leg or damaged testicles or penis (can we say "euthanized stallion" or "huge vet bill"???)! I'd strongly encourage you to start breeding "in hand" - it's much safer for the animals.

With luck, he'll get over it, and also with luck he's bred her at the right time to get her pregnant... although if she's still in "heat" and he hasn't bred her for 3 days, you may be in trouble there... :-(
