I have a CLydesdale colt we are most likely keeping intact. He is a yearling will be one in March. Currently no interest in the mares but when spring hits who knows... I will definately be seperating him from some of the herd(ones I would definatly not want bred) BUT I do not want him to have to be alone.... so thought I would keep our older Clyde mare in with him. I wouldn't care so much if he bred her but its not something I am hoping will happen. So what are everyones thoughts? I just think he will mentally/socially do better if he continues to have a pasture mate and he and this mare are bonded--she treats him like he is her colt(he is not)And if he did breed her will that make "training" him to breed in the correct situations(in hand and collected) more difficult? or make his behavoir become bad?? He is currently very docile and respectful
