I just wanted to let those of you who offered helpful advice to know...

Mr stud muffin just spent an entire week covering a grey mare with no outside influence...

I'm so happy....

If you recall...what I ended up having to do was use a 'colored' mare as a Tease (right next to the mare he had to breed)...and use her to tease him past the point of no return at which point he would be in the mood to breed anything I put in front of him including the grey mare..

This last time we started breeding on a Saturday so I was in no hurry and just had him and the mare to be bred out...after about 10 minutes switching between teasing her and ignoring her..he eventually was ' ready' and did his duty all by himself..

And for the rest of her cycle he did his job without any help...

So I think that I may have 'trained' him through his problem....

He has one more grey mare to breed this year and we'll try it again and see what happens.

Great! You did just what was needed, it usually works just like that. Patience is a virtue

When I breed Mammoth Jacks, some do not like mares at all.(they weren't started out correctly by breeding mares before Jennys)So I had to do the same thing, switching between a Jenny and back to the mare. It can take forever. The main problem there is not color, but the difference in the internal conformation.

Mr. Stud muffin has found out that if he closes his eyes, it is all good! Congrats.

Can you tell more more about the differences in the 'internal conformation'...

He seems so much happier when he breeds Arabian mares (eyes closed...almost smiling) then he does when he's covering his own breed (Andalusian).

Smaller mares and even some maiden mares are indeed a "tighter" fit. As you have probably noticed, even the stallions are not all created equal! The vertibral difference in the Arab may have something to do with his perference, as the length and angle may be shorter.

All are indiviuals and as such have different angles and tilts to their pelvis and internal organs. The Jennys have a differently positioned pelvis shelf and it is not as enjoyable to the Jack to breed a mare.

My stallion has his favorites, and they are all the smaller, shorter backed mares.
