My great uncle got a clyde mare, a few months later he got a phone call saying that they forgot to tell him that the mare was out with a little welsh stallion. 5 months later he had a clyde/welsh cross. Apparently it was a cute little thing. I saw a few pictures of it. But the mental images I had rolling through my head... these mares I tell ya!

I knew friends that had a Percheron mare and a pony stallion of some sort - it was so long ago, I honestly don't remember his breed. They're not sure how they managed, but somehow, a foal resulted from those two.

I have heard of mares actually laying down, like for minis. I don't know if it actually happens or not, but doesn't seem too terribly unreasonable. One of my teachers talked about a St Bernard who was sleeping was bred by a Chihuahua...

MY 14.2 Stallion that is an experienced breeder and my 16.2 TB mare needed a "ramp" in order to be successful. It took 2 heat cycles and I swear he settles every other mare when he covers them the first time.
We lead him over to the manure pile and backed her up to it to ensure proper "depth" He just couldnt quite complete the act on his tippy toes.
I am sure that others have seen things that happen but watching this first hand I have no problem with my yearling 13 hand colt in a pasture with my 17 hand TB mare and some geldings. Shalom

I've seen this happen a lot. It's possible. On a side note, my university used to have a stallion who's penis, over time with age, was at a 45 degree angle from his body when erect. They could still collect him (but from the wrong side he was used to) so they sold him. He managed to pasture breed a whole lot of mares himself at his new owners though. When they want it they'll get it.

Maybe he stood on a box or she stood in a hole. I would think the result might be a really classy cob sized driving horse.

There was a yearling for sale here, the add claimed the dam was a 17.2hh thoroughbred and the sire was a mini, they figured he got her when she was sleeping.

My cousins had a 15hh paint that bred a 18hh percheron. The foal was spectacular.

There is a shetland x standardbred at my riding club. He's about 13hh and a fantastic little games pony. So yes, as others have said, it's possible.
