The stud turned himself lose. There was nothing wrong with our corral. Just a horse that's very good with gates.
Im sorry if I sound like a jerk, but I don't like it when people jump in like they know the whole situation.

"The man who does it wasn't sick" - you understand it is illegal to castrate a horse if you are not a qualified vet, right? Not only that, but it is cruel and inhumane to do it without access to the anesthetics and other medications a vet can get, and frankly, idiotic. If that's not what you were planning to do, that's fine, but if it is, rethink it.
I gave you my advice. My advice is to give your poor mare the best possible care at this stage, and not neglect her health by neglecting to have a vet manage the pregnancy. That alone maximises your chances for a healthy mare and foal at the end of the pregnancy, which in turn will give the foal the best possible start and allow the mare to be the best possible mother if she is in good health post partum.
If you don't like it when people "jump in without knowing the situation", then post the whole situation or be prepared for people to jump in. All I knew at the start was exactly what you posted in your first post. If you didn't want assumptions to be made, you needed to be explicitly clear so that there were no holes to fill with those assumptions. And, based on the response to my post, given the gaps within the text and your somewhat unsociable manner, I am now going to suggest you ask your parents to call a vet, as I am now assuming that they are the financially responsible party in this arrangement.
Also, if a stud can "let himself loose" then yes, it is a fencing problem.
