My friends' mini is a little on the nuts side.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

I've seen this too.

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

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!

To give a horse your heart guarantees a love that will last forever undamageable

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.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

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.
