Geldings can be aroused into breeding behavior by other males exhibiting breeding behavior. Mares are bred every year due to bad fencing and improper separation of mares and studs. Stallion owners are usually liable by law for accidental breedings, which is why most boarding facilities will not accept stallions because they would be liable if their fencing or facilities in general were insufficient to prevent accidental breedings.

I do apologize for withholding such information but I was just notified that he was in fact a stud as of recently. So I didn't even know myself! I have been able to talk to the barn manager/gelding owner and we had a very calm discussion about it and we are getting checked with everyone knowledgeable about the situation. There is something amiss with her teats and will post an image, they are increasing in size and I worry that if it is phantom pregnancy what could cause this? (Keep in mind she hasn't ever been bred)

A third possibility is a very recently gelded stallion being turned out with in heat mares. It takes about 8 weeks for a stallion to have hormone levels fade to gelding levels. In addition, they can still have a few viable sperm in their reproductive duct for a few weeks (I want to say two or three weeks) post gelding. Which means you can potentially have a gelding sire offspring. It would be rare but not impossible.

Rookie I was also under the assumption that recently gelded male still retained some viable sperm. I recently had two colts gelded and one is a coming 3 year old. I asked the vet how long until he could not impregnate a mare. He stated after gelding he would be infertile immediately. This is from a vet that also teaches animal science in a local college.

We had her palpated. Doctor diagnosed her with outrageous hormones! And that she has no infection in her teats or snywhere else. Thanks y'all for the advice!

Glad to hear there's no baby on the way :)

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.
