So I bought this mare last year in foal she had a beautiful filly on 4/3 and is now coming into heat. Previous owners were honest with me that she is a difficlt breeder live cover she will tease and tease and tease but when the stallion is actually brought to breed she goes nuts and throws a hissy fit and this was with her being a open dry mare. This year she has a foal so I am afraid it will be much worse. This is my stallions first year breeding more than one or two mares and he is still figuring out everything. He is a bit timid and I do not want him kicked and put off on the whole breeding thing. I plan on using some kind of hobble on her to reduce the risk of him getting kicked, anyone have any other advice. Next year we will be set up completely for AI their is just to much risk in live cover.

Thank you
Larisa

That would make me nervous to breed this mare that has issues, with your stallion who is just beginning to breed. If he has a bad experience breeding this mare, it could lead to a lifetime of issues with this stallion.

Even with hobbles, the mare can still cause injury to the stallion. If it were me, I would use another stallion that has more experience.

I wouldn't do it. It only takes on nasty mare to shut your stallion down. I am currently dealing with a mare in raging heat who i can't get bred because she kicked the crap out of my stallion. Shame of it is, she's my nicest mare....and he will breed everybody but her. It would be much less stressful to teach the stallion to collect and AI this year.

this may not help you at all but I have an older mare who will tease and tease my stallion to blue you-know-whats but she would not let him breed even in standing (vet checked and ready) heat. I tried everything as she is my baby, and I finally figured out with her that I have to use a winter blanket for her. Now I always use a twitch on the mares just to be on the safe side, but so long as my stallion can't touch her physically except penatration she will stand all day for him.
