Help!
I need some advise desperatly, I recently bought a wonderfull 12 year old stallion. Good in all ways and an apsalute pleasure to own and ride. In the past I have only ever had gelding so this is my 1st stallion.

Sold as told he had reached his breeding peak and the seller had lots of his foals to keep her busy. On purchase I was told he was kept with a 6 year old gelding 13hh so not to keep him alone for to long as he would get lonely. This was fine as I also have a little 12.2 Gelding.

I kept them seperate via a fence for the 1st 2 weeks and they seem to get on fine. I let them run together and for the 1st 3 hours no issues at all. There after, the stallion consistantly keeps mounting the gelding. There is no aggresion between eather of them but I have had to seperate again to avoid incorect penetration and damage to my gelding.

I would so like to put them together as aside from the mounting they get on really well.
"How can I stop him mounting the gelding" "Will he ever stop and loose interest in my poor little boy". I am petrified he will penetrate and do harm as he knows exacly what he's doing. Advise urgently needed.

While rectal penetration is a possibility, you should probably be more concerned about the possibility of the gelding kicking the stallion and causing significant damage - broken leg, damaged testicles etc.

Will he stop mounting? Maybe. Is there a safe way to stop it happening? Yes - keep them separated! You can try putting them in together again at a later date, but for now I'd keep them apart as it's not worth the risk.

Jos - Thanks for the advice, they are still seperated and thankfully during their short time together the gelding showed no aggresion. Just a look of berwilderment. I will try again in a few months.
