I have an old stallion (25) who has been used AI and live cover. I am considering pasture breeding him with one of my mares (whom he has bred live cover before). She is just coming in heat today. She is a very easy breeder - stands like a boulder when she's in season, but means business when she's not in heat. She has a 6 week old foal (by this stallion) at side. I am considering turning this mare and her foal out with this stallion for this cycle, but I've never done pasture breeding before. He's a polite stallion, and has lived on a common fenceline with this mare for several years, so they know each other well. I would hesitate less if it weren't for the foal the mare has at side. What are the risks/benefits of pasture breeding? Am I crazy for even thinking about it? Thanks in advance for any input.

I would not turn the foal out with the stallion! Especially if he has never pasture bred before.
