How do I help him get up there? mini serving shetland mare

So it will be her first foal so wanted the stallion to be smaller. She is running with him at the moment 24/7.

In her last cycle he had a few good goes but she's come in season again so I don't think he gets quite far in enough? I don't know how far he needs to go never whitnessed serving before.

The season is getting late so I want to make it happen this cycle or next but think I need to help him out a little.
Any advice appreciated

Also any tips on supplements to feed the stallion? I'm giveing cod liver oil for the vitamin A to make sure he is fertile also a commercial mineral supp

This will be my first foal so any advice would be great

I am certainly we established in horses. I have a purpose for the foal. The stallion has been a stud all his life for the previous owner and the mare has been a very successful show pony looking to breed her to some pure Shetlands in future.
Thanks

What is the hieght difference between the stud and the mare? If he can deffinantally not reach thr you could take them to a step so he has a bit more hieght or you could AI her.

Do you have a hill you could utilize? If you do, you could always hold the mare with her rear facing the incline, which would give the stud a little more height advantage

Hills, as has been said - and a lot of people I know have built platforms for their smaller stallions. I imagine you could dig a fairly shallow trench also, but you would have to make the mare hold still which could take a couple or three people.

Thank you

Thanks all for your suggestions. I do have a bit of a incline will try and utilise that. I like the trench idea too may be able to utilise both.

There is only a hand and a bit maybe two hands height difference between them

Will see how I go with it. Thanks all

What had breeding ditchs dug back home so we could back the mare down into a lower level so the stud could reach her.
