Stupid question.....how much height difference is too much between a stallion and mare. My Gyspy Stallion (2YO) is 14.3 HH and my shire and clyde mares are all between 16.2 and 17.3 HH Does anyone know the rule?
I don't think there is a rule when the stallion is smaller than the mares. You will probably need to dig a ditch for the mares to stand in or put the stallion on a hill so he can reach your girls. The guys tend to work it out with a little bit of man made help.
Emma, Thanks for the info. My husband thinks I am NUTS for even trying. I have giant hairy horses everywhere!
