I hope he was successful.

Today I had the stallion taken out of his pasture and placed in the round pen. We needed to remove some large tree limbs and branches from his pasture it is 3 acres and has about 1/2 acre of trees. The big storm came through and really damaged some trees.
About 2 this afternoon we were driving out with a load and I looked over at the round pen.
Star was caught by his hindlimbs on the panel.
His front and head were outside the pen and his hindlegs were still inside.
The panel was bent and they are 5 ft and a half tall and made of metal.
The top two bars were bent.
All I could think of was that he was impaled on the panel.
We got close and could see no blood.
His back legs were firmly on the ground and so were his front.
He was standing as calm as could be talking to the mares like nothing was wrong.
Evidently he mounted a mare through the fence and she walked out from under him.
This is kind of funny now but I was afraid he was hurt or would hurt himself if he started to struggle.
He was very calm. After we lowered he panel he just walked off and started flirting with a mare.
Doria the maid said that she saw him attempting to mount when she was doing the dishes about 9 am.
The mare that he might have bred was to be bred next year she is a TB and 16.1 he is 14.1.
The sand in the roundpen gave him enough height to accomplish the mission and keep his hind legs on the ground. Shalom

ROFL, these friggin' stallions! I came home not too long ago to find Skippy, my QH stallion, standing very calmly in a section of the pasture and didn't think much of it. He frequently pines for the girls where he was standing. So, I went about my business of evening feed and bringing everyone in and I looked over and realized, Skip handn't moved. WTH? He normally comes over for a skritch. So I walked over and found him astride a gate, front feet one side, back feet in the pasture. Good news was, there's no way a mare could get mounted there, it's a no mans land between pastures that I don't keep horses in. So, I went over to the gate, took a look at the situation and dismantled the gate, took it off the mounting brackets and he very calmly walked off, no injuries. AMAZING the crazy things they do.

So you put a stallion in a pen sharing fenceline with mares, someone saw him attempting to mount mares *over* the 5.5' panel fence, and no one thought to stop him?

Read the title of the thread again...

Even if you decide you want your stallion to breed one of your mares, you should be responsible enough to put a stop to a dangerous situation and allow him to cover the mare in a safer environment.

Read more: I hope he was successful."

It sounds like the OP didn't see it, someone else did and didnt notify them, from what I read.

Dreamcatcher I will never figure out how horses get themselves in such situations.
His pastrue is 3 acres and made of steel pipe. It is 6 feet tall.
He is always surounded by mares here.
We moved most of them into a larger 100 acre pasture but kept a few near the house for riding.
He is only 14.1 and the roundpen is too tall for him to attempt such things.
The sand in it has been pushed next to the panels making it deeper there. About 5 or 6 inches.
Like I said if he was going to all that trouble to be caught on a fence for a few hours I hope he was successful.
Mares are even more aggressive during the heat cycles than stallions.
Dancer has been backing up to his fence for a few days teasing him.
With the added hieght from the sand I guess he decided to go for it.
I still find it comical now after the near heart attack. Shalom
