So we bred Reggie to Tali tonight and it went VERY well! I'm soooooo proud of my boy. It was his very first time and he walked very nicely up to Tali talking the whole way. He proceded to sniff her, nudge her side and then very gently mounted her. He was such a gentleman!!!

My only question is he seemed to be just a little too short and although Tali was squatting he seemed to be only entering her half way. I believe he did ejaculate (my husband said he did, I couldn't see since I was holding Tali)but since he was only partly in her I doubt his penis was up against her cervix.

I know the routine is to breed every other day but would you do it again tomorrow and try to get a better cover or do you think this was sufficent and just tease her in 2 days with possibly breeding her then?

My boy was to short to but he got the job done! we set her a about 6 inches lower then him and he Seem to get him alot closer! try a little ditch ever inch counts :-) If you have a routine you should stick to it. It will help him learn what is proceedure but at the same time he will get better experience for later breeding to mares that may not be so nice as tali....but procedure is good for him.... tough call...

I have this problem as well....(in miniature) My 24" stallion can reach the 30" mares, but not "all the way". I recently started putting him in the feed room at breeding time *(It has an elevated floor)....and then bringing the mares to him, and backing them up to the feed room door! He caught on really fast, and loves the idea of "reaching fully"...only problem is, everytime I go to feed, he runs in the feed room and grunts, whinnies and gets erect! (He's young, he doesn't know any better) HAHA!!!
Tracy, I believe I'd wait it out...I know you're anxious to make sure she's rebred, and it can be hard. But, spend today trying to make the perfect "reaching" scenario, and give him another chance tomorrow....that's what I would do if it were me. I am so glad his leg is doing well enough to breed her....things could have been much worse there! Let us know how it goes!

The average mare's vagina is about 8-12" long. The average stallion's penis is 18-24" long.

You do the math... :-)

Hi Tracy,

Glad to hear that Reggie did so well for his first time. Sounds like you have laid the groundwork for a well behaved stud, since you are breeding on a foal heat I personally would not breed again today, a lot of "trauma" (not exactly the right word but..) to her reproductive tract....what you do now will lay that ground work for him in his future too and you don't want to rush...Good luck, can't wait till the preg check! Doing the fertility dance for ya!

LOL Jos! I guess we did just fine then! Thanks for everyone's advice and I will wait until tomorrow to see if she's still in heat.

Jan, that was a concern of mine too, I want to make sure I don't create more problems. Hey, if she doesn't conceive we'll try again next cycle and at least Reggie is getting good experiences :-)

Mariana, we left Flash in the stall and did the deed right there in the aisleway of the barn!

We bred them again last night and had a much better cover. I had a friend there that was able to put a halter on Flash and hold him in front of Tali so they could still be close but not in the way. We moved her outside of the barn and put her on a spot that was about 4-6 inches lower and it worked perfect. He was able to get in all the way, he definitely ejaculated (lots of flagging too!)so hopefully we got her! I'll tease her again on Saturday and keep your fingers crossed she'll no longer be in heat :-)

Reggie was still the perfect gentleman, he likes to wait a couple of minutes before mounting. Much better than a crazy stallion running at the mare!

Good going Reggie! I'm very happy for you Tracy! I hope she takes first time. Lucky you to have your own stallion, very convient and inexpensive too.

Tali is still in heat so we'll be breeding them again today. GRRRRRR, I know only 3 covers isn't that bad but I hope she's not having some weird heat cycle.

Marilyn, I bred my other mare a few times and had her down with the stallion. I have to say this is very nice not having to worry about my mare or trailering her back and forth. Now if we can just get her pregnant!

Tracy, Tali is in her foal heat, isn't she? Flash isn't very old yet. It's not really uncommon for a mare not to catch on foal heat. Out of my 6 mares, only one of them takes during foal heat....all of the others are just hopefuls...and I have yet to have any of them take, except her. So, don't get discouraged if she waits the other 21 days or so...and you're right, nothing compares to owning your own stallion, and not sending the girls away! (especially when you have 6 of them! LOL)

Yeah, she's in her foal heat and I know it's not uncommon to not conceive :-) My other mare got pregnant every time on her foal heat so I've been hoping but if Tali doesn't I won't freak out! :-)
