I've seen this too.

It's not a good idea, though I see why some people think it can't happen.

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.
"YET" being the key word here. Why is he even a stud? If he's not being used for breeding purposes, good chance he could be infertile as well.

It's not a good idea - period. Where there is a will, there is a way for horses and they WILL find a way. Don't kid yourself, the girls want it just as bad as the boys when those cycles come into play!

O don't this happened in a yard up the road a mini broke into the field he stood up onto a hill and managed to mount four. The oddest and ugliest horses ever!!!

Just on the persistence topic .... they will find a way !
A friend of mines mare was bred through a wooden rail fence !
Those horses were determined to "get it on" lol

Where there is a will there is a way!

It is that simple.

And when the mare wants to be bred (and she will when she is in heat) and there is a stallion, they will make it happen.

This is a fact that people seem to completely forget about! I had to move my stallion from a farm because a mare continuously broke down fences to get to him when she was in heat. She never got bred since when the fences came down the two draft geldings in with her would come beat the crap out of my stallion. They had no way to keep her enclosed when she was in heat with him there so I moved him to keep him safe.

Not sure why her mini was never gelded. I think I asked her once, but can't rememeber what she said. He might be infertile though, because the mares for the most part just ignore him. Their more inclined to back up to the geldings than him.

Your statement alone should show that the mares do not think fertile or not fertile when they are in heat. (The mares back up to the geldings (which are obviously not fertile) when in heat, so why would him being fertile or not make a difference to the mare showing interest?)

It is silly to assume he is not fertile if he is not gelded.

mares, stallion
