Personally, I wouldn't. Do you HAVE to put her in the same paddock?

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

She's an intact female and he's an intact male. Expect an inbred foal out of her at 2 y/o if you put her in with her father.

I'm going to go ahead and agree here as well, way to risky. The stallion obviously has bred before which means he is experienced, even though she is a year old she CAN get pregnant.

If you don't want your mini mare pregnant, then do not put her in a paddock with a stallion.
