Our mini mare foaled over a week ago as most of you know, and I'd like to breed her to our stallion, (We bought her in foal to another stallion) but I have a bit of a problem with her. She has been showing to him across the pens (They share part of a fence, but are separated by an alleyway otherwise) When I take him over to tease, she gets very angry and takes baby away. When I took him IN her pen, she wanted nothing to do with him. he is very polite to his mares, and has only ever pasture bred, should I put them together? Separate baby out for a while and try to tease and hand breed, ??? Not sure- thoughts? Don't want baby getting hurt or mum getting stressed, or stallion getting beat up!

DON'T take baby away, it makes it worse. I usually just get them in a small area, with the stallion on a lead. Let the mare and foal be free to move around and away. When she is ready for him, she will move and keep the foal in front of her, and let him do his business. Hang on to the stallion and follow her around, let him talk to her, and approach her. If she's mean to him, put him away, and try again tomorrow. Many mares with foals at their side give the ol' boy one chance to get it right, and they wait till the last minute to breed him. Just be there to "spot" the situation so baby doesn't get hurt....they know what to do from there. LOL
