Hi, I have a 2 yr old Hackney stallion. My first q is.. can he be out in the pasture with his breeding partner permanently? And he only has 1 small testicle,should I have the vet see him or wait until he is 3? He is covering the mare he is out with,and semen does leak out after the dirty deed. My other question is I have a new Mustang gelding that is mounting my 26 yr old mare, what's the deal with him?

Hello Andrea I personally wouldnt leave the stallion in permanently bc some stallions will attack colt foals and as for the gelding how old is he and when was he gelded?

Thanks! A vet told me I could keep them 2gether but the mare may develope an infection if he doesn't leave her alone (which he does) He is really a sweet guy! I have no idea if my little pony mare is pregn. cause of the testicle thing. I think I will heed the advise. As far as my Mustang goes I just got him and the dude said he was gelded at 3 or 4. I think he is 5 now. I have never seen this. My other gelding acts like a stallion now "protecting his mares" from this new mustang. But the mustang just won't let me catch him now. He got out of his halter and now wont let me get near with a leadrope. The guy never did anything with him. Any advise on how 2 catch this stubborn guy besides trying to get him with grain and treats? Thnx sooo much!

can he be out in the pasture with his breeding partner permanently?

While you can do this, it is important to bear in mind that it increases (dramatically) the risk of injury to stallion, mare and foal. It also may cause problems for estimating likely foaling period, as one may not be aware of when the mare was last bred.

1 small testicle, should I have the vet see him or wait until he is 3?

While testicles can descend as late as their 6th year, the position of the testicle will predict likelihood of descent or not of the second testicle - there's an article about crytorchidism in our article section that you might want to review.

As the possibility that he is a cryptorchid obviously exists, it raises the question as to whether you should be breeding him. Although cryptorchidism has not been either proven nor disproven to be hereditary in the equine, it has been shown to be so in other species, and consequently it is generally agreed that it is better not to run the possible risk of passing it on by breeding a cryptorchid stallion (colt) until research has demonstrated that it is not hereditary.

I have a new Mustang gelding that is mounting my 26 yr old mare, what's the deal with him?

Some geldings will still breed mares. Simply because he has no testicles doesn't mean he can't get an erection and breed a mare. That's why it's generally considered a bad idea to keep geldings and broodmares together - especially if the gelding is known to breed mares (risk of transference of infection and injury is increased).

I thank you all for taking the time to answer my questions. I have no other way of keeping this gelding serperate so I guess I will have to keep my eye on that mare. As far as catching him in a round pen its on the other side of the farm,he is in a large pasture.I guess I will have to just get 'em to trust me. Thanks again! and have a blessed day.

eww an other person with a mustang. good luck a 5 year old that hasnt been handled!! mines 9 and been handled for years if she get it in her brain, there is no stoping her. that the greatest and worst thing about mustangs!!! once he trust you, you will be his whole life, and he will lay his life down for you! thats how there herds run in the wild. its build in to them so mcuh more then domestic horses. They bond for life, domestic bond for now

i hate to sound cruel but you will have to work him like you would in a round pen in the whole pasture!!! grab a 4 wheeler and a lightly run him when ever hes away from the gate, give him as much rest as he would like at the gate ( or even to start with when hes on that cornor of the pasture) and keep him LIGHTLY moving anytime hes away from it eventually he will like the gate when your around!!! this micht take a few days or weeks depending on the horse. You could then set up your round pen by the gate and and trap him! they are suckers for food but learn much faster then most horses, youll only get that chance to trap him once!!!

GOOD LUCK

if you know a good roper you might get some one to rope him to!!
