Need some inormation. Does anyone know if a yearling colt and yearling filly will breed. He turned a year on June 10 and she turned a year today July 26. He was gelded in May. She seems to be getting a belly and I am not sure if its because of the green grass or PG, since the gelding now is on the same pasture and he carries average weight and also my 5 year old geldings weight has not changed either. Please someone provide me with some info and I thank you in advance. Laura

Hi Laura- This has happened, but it is rare. How long were they out before he was gelded? I threw a fit when I learned "the facts" on when he could get her pregnant... Finally the barn separated them and the colt was gelded- but that was only after I caught the colt mounting my filly.
Hi there, he was with her for about 3 months prior to gelding him. The day before gelding him we were going for a walk down the road and he mounted me.
