I am familiar with 2 methods-

Handle the stallion. Cross tie the mare in a type of stocks, with a solid wall about 4 ft tall or so between the stallion and the mare.

or-

Handle the mare. Leave stallion in his stall and open the top part of a dutch door for him to reach out and "make nice" to the mare.

I've heard of a couple other methods, but these are the only 2 I've seen used.

What is your preferred teasing method, especially when the breeding stallion will also tease?

RB,
we will have a handler for both the mare and stallion, The stallion leaves the barn first then the mare. The stallion is taken to one side of our wooden fence which is very strong not delapitated , and the mare on the other side. Depending on the mare --which sometimes likes to be talked to and talk back face to face first , we will back the mare up to the fence line and then the stallion will approach from the other side, make sure that all is working and everyone wants to participate, we then move the mare to the stallions side of the fence row , bring the mare up to the fence and the mare handler will handle the mare with a lunge line ,but have it short,this way to stay out of the way of the mare and stallon, and stay on the mares side of the fence, keeping the mare very close to the fence, with her able to put her chest against the fence wall, that way when the stallion mounts the fence can help hold her in place so there is no trouble with the mount and she stays in one place. After the mount the stallion is walked away the opposite direction of the mare and the mare is removed for a few minutes of walking. That is more than our teasing method , but once I got started , i just continued ! We will also tease in the barn , with stallion in his stall, and mare next to him, they are seperated by a cattle pannel-on top and solid wood-bottom of stall walls, if the mare is showing that there is interest we will proced to the outside. If they are standing next to him in the barn with tail high up and winking then there is no question !

We tease a very large amount of mares every day in breeding season.

We have a box, wooden panels to chest height and then a bar a few inches above that. The teaser stands in there, free, and all the mares are bought into the yards around him. The hussies will run up and show and can be taken out to another yard to give the shy girls a chance.
When the obvious ones are sorted, we take the others up to the wall and the teaser works on them individually.

We do have a back up plan, and a plan C as every so often our teaser will take exception to a particular mare, or a mare may fall in love in love with him and try to be in seson when she's not. But mostly this works very well.

when I didn't have a stallion, i would use my old gelding, I tie the mare to a wall, in front of the box where the foal stays if there is one, and come from the side with the gelding (which she knows very well, she is in pasture with him), if she doesn't show, I make him put his head on her back (from the side), and although she knows him well, and knows he's not interested at all, she still shows she's in heat.
this method is really securising, as the gelding is not getting excited at all. Might even work better with a gelding showing a little stallion behavior.


This works better than teasing with a two year old stallion, even over the stall door, she tries to bite or kick him, although she's in heat !
