I've got a 3 year old miniature filly and a 21 month old stallion. Neither has bred before. We've had the filly for 2 years, the stallion for only a month. Both horses are very friendly, although the stallion is more timid. They pasture with a 5 year old miniature gelding. Any advice for us first timers? Should I remove the gelding (he and the stallion get along very, very well) when she goes into heat? Should I pasture breed them and hope for the best? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

We hand breed our mini, so we would know the due date. I have a friend who has mini, she said you need to be there when a mini foal is born. If you pasture breed then you want know the due date. I have my mini mare who is due May in the pasture with the stud and a gelding. I put her back with them when I knew she was breed.They are get along fine for now, when she foals I will have her close by but not in the same fence area. I will wait until the foal gets around good first. You don't want the stud and the gelding to hurt the foal. This is my first mini to be born here. I have had big horses born, but not minis. You can see my horses at www.photobucket.com/albums/e329/MBhorses
Take pictures of your mare when you breed her and let Jan on this site guess what she will have. GO under pregnant mare and foals stuff. Jan is good at guessing the sex of the foal.
THANKS melissa

Thanks Melissa. This is the first time for both, so maybe we'll see how well they handle hand breeding. I hope she takes this spring, I'm anxious for a foal and it's hard enough to have to await the long gestation. I'll go to your photos now to see your horses.
