putting a mini stallion in with full sized horses (mares)?

Would it be ok to put my mini stallion in the paddock with a friends mares? I think they are paints.

I don't want any trouble or breeding, just need to keep him somewhere else for a while.

He couldn't possibly try and jump a full sized mare could he?

I would never put a stallion out with a mare no matter what size

Unless you want a foal you NEVER put a stallion of any type or size with ANY mare. I have seen draft horse mares lay down for mini stallions to breed them. Just don't do it.

Stallions are very persistent. Unless you want some funny paint/mini babies, keep from away from the mares. Some gelding friends would be nice though. My BO's mini stallion lives with a mini gelding. The stally's a bit of a bully, but, otherwise, they get along just fine.

Have to agree, a stally should never be turned out with mares unless you are expecting and wanting him to cover them. I ended up with a pregnant Belgian mare because her old owner had turned her out with a QH stud because "He couldn't possibly breed something that much bigger than him".

Nope, nope, no turning even a mini stallion out with mares, unless you are counting on babies.

We have a member on here who has a colt that was resulted from an accidental breeding between a 10 hand pony/mini stallion and a 17 hand perch mare. It can and will happen. Don't take the risk!

I have seen mares lay down for a mini stallion to breed them. I know people who have done it on purpose, it will happen if you put them in together.

Even if he cannot possibly breed them...he will go crazy trying. All those hormones in the air and nothing he can do about it. Its just not worth the aggrivation!

My friend has her mini stallion turned out with the other full size mares and geldings. I've known her for 5 years & no accidental breedings yet. Although he does try.
The only problems she has had with the mini being out with the other horses is her draft gelding really bullies him, & the mini doesn't always get enough to eat. She puts him in a stall ever so often so he can get extra food.
She also has plenty of room for everyone to get away from each other.
The mini actually kind of stays off to himself unless he is pestering a mare.
He is also protective of the herd. If a strange horse gets to close to the gate, he charges the fence.
