Don't do it. Even if he doesn't breed the mares he'll be trying constantly and the mares and stallion will both likely get injured.

Aside from the possibility of the mares getting bred, I would not chance the stallion's life! Mares can kick when a stallion is pestering them, minis are just the right size for a fatal kick to the head!

Yearling
We had a horrible little mini gelding here for a bit- I am pretty sure he was proud cut. Of course with 2 mares cycling this spring he was horndogging it and was HORRIBLE. I had to keep him with my goats until he started attacking the goats. Put him with the cows, he finally escaped and harassed the mares until they kicked the stuffing out of him. My big mares had hoof prints on their butts because is was attempting to mount them. Thank goddess he wasn't hurt, but he could have been. I was able to find a home for the Horrid Little Pony and they have him on medication to reduce his testosterone, and is now a driving pony and doing good. It was not an experience I want to have again.

Perhaps slightly off-topic, but nearly along the same lines. What about a yearling kept in with a larger QH mare? Not long ago my and my friend and I were talking about this, as she just got her yearling colt gelded, but from December (when he was about 6 months old) until around the beginning of June, he was in with her tall QH mare, and he had the kick marks to prove it.

My friend didn't think there was any chance of him "reaching" her, but I wasn't so sure. What do you guys think?

Are yearling studs able and willing to breed full sized mares?

Absolutely! They can and will! Until just recently my 15 month old Finn never showed ANY interest in the girls whatsoever, yet he has been separated from the girls when they are in heat since he was 7 months old and his first testicle dropped. Not taking any chances. I've heard many, many stories of colts successfully breeding as young as 8-9 months old.
