I have a 3 yr old palomino Stallion QH. This is his first real year (bred one mare 10mths ago). He has run with the mares for 4 months and has only got one pregnant..and we had to lock him in yard with her before he was keen enough to mount her. The mare was extremly persistent with him and he eventually mounted her. Now the other mares appear to be in season but are not really bothered to aproach him. He seems to of become bored!! Do I need to feed him up again or take him out for a spell? oh..also..this stallion is in my opinion just WAY TOO QUIET. I know I should feel lucky but seriously...he is just too easy. He does not vocalise or drop or prance..nothing!

This guy is only 3. He's still a baby! Indeed, breeding too many mares (or putting too much breeding pressure) on a young colt (he's not a stallion yet!) can even result in them being reluctant to breed - ever!
If he were mine, I'd take him out of the pen with the mares, and take the pressure off him, and let him be a baby a little longer, as that's what he's telling you he wants to be...
