We have a small breeding program with a half a dozen mares that we breed to outside stallions. We have several mares that are very silent in their cycles unless there is a stallion around. It gets costly having the vet out several times to check and then also to inseminate when the time is right. So we are looking into purchasing a teaser, and have heard you can sometimes get by with a pony or mini stud. I wondered if anyone has ever done this and what their experience and advice is.

A friend of mine uses a Mini stallion. Neither the mares nor the stallion seem to realize that he's not big enough to do anything.

My miniature stallion teases my big horse mares very well. And the mares respond to him just as though he could "do something about it." They don't seem to notice the difference.

Great, how do you go about teasing with him? You don't pasture him with the mares do you?

A friend of mine had what I'd call a medium sized breeding operation and stood a stallion. However, she had a pony that was used as a teaser. She had alleys between the fields and just left the pony in the alleys so he and the mares could go up and check each other out through the fence at any time. That way she didn't have to get her breeding stallion excited for no reason and she could just observe the mares behaviors and didn't need to lead each of them up to the teaser several times during the day. And you know sometimes those mares just won't show that they are in when you lead them up to the stallion! This system worked well for her.

Dani,
No, I do not pasture my mini stallion with the big horse mares. He is kept in a separate paddock, but the mares have access to be able to get right up next to the fence where he is. He will start huffing and puffing just like any stallion would and if the mares are in heat, they will turn their butts right around to that fence and start winking. He is able to stretch his neck up high enough to get his nose right under their tails and really tease them up.
And if I want to check a specific mare, I will just lead her to the stallion's paddock and he will come running over and do the same thing, and it will be more than obvious if the mare is in heat. If she isn't, then she will pin her ears and try to get away from him.
I don't think either one knows that he's too little to actually do the job.

I found a mini stallion at a killer auction to use on thoroughbred mares. He does a fair job but some mares intimidate him and after the first nicker, if they don't tease in, he is finished. I suppose that could be true of any stallion, tho.
He accidentally got into the pasture with the mares one day and tried to kill one of the foals. Luckily, I was able to catch him before he did any damage.
