I was given a gelding to keep my mare company & help wean the foal. Well it turns out he drives mares when thier in heat & viciousley bites them ! My mare is pregnant now so for awhile he seemed to have stoped it, but now he;s at it again, not as bad but still bitting. I think I should send him back!But worry my mare will fret to be alone again:-( what would you do?

Is there any way to separate them but them still see each other? If not I would send him back if possible. I've heard of some that put a goat in with their horse to keep em company. The main thing I think is to protect your mare and her foal. Just my 2 pennies...lol Good luck to you!

My gelding is not very nice to my mare. I had him first and owned him solo for 10 years, then got the mare about a year ago and he was really nice the first week and then got really jealouse and nasty to the mare especially when I gave the mare attention. (spoiled!) She is pregnant now and he continues to be mean to her, but I have them in their own stalls and rotate them to the pasture with turns. He does have a love - hate relationship because when I take the mare out on a ride, he calls and calls for her. (vise versa for the mare). I think they keep each other company, but I do keep them separated so the mare and baby will not get hurt.

Can't wait to see some pictures! I had an older mare abort back in early summer. Now I have a maiden that is due sometime around Feb/Mar 07. We don't know the exact date she was bred. Thought she was bred late summer 05 and she was checked Apr 06. Turns out she got with the stud colt instead in early spring 06. Sooo, vet was right she was preg, but my husband and I are novice and didn't ask all the right questions, just assumed and found out we were WAY WAY off on what we thought the date was. Its our first foal too. She is a registered paint (breed stock) Now that I look back, everything is happening in the right order from all that I've read about so I would say we are on right track now. Brrrr, I don't look forward to a Feb foaling...lol We live in East TN.
