Well I could split the pasture, but I like big grassy turnouts and I don't really want to. I don't want to do mixed, there's just too much risk from what I've heard. I guess I'm just lucky, my mare is not too bad when she's in season.
I think instead of having mares only, you just don't allow stallions. That's what most barns do. Geldings are pretty quiet most of the time and can be turned out with mares for the most part (depending on the combo of horses)
Agreed, BUT if you are wanting to make some money because a LOT of people have geldings, you might want to allow them as I said, What can they hurt? Completely understand about stallions though, tooo much liability!
