    I keep my 10 month old with my mare. He's pretty short as of lately. I don't think he can physically reach my mare. When my mare was in heat he was about 5 months. He thinks of her as his mother, but I wouldnt put it past any stallion to try something, given enough time ungelded. He has no studly behavior and hasnt dropped yet. Im patiently waiting to nip him.

    My friend kept her two babies together for a year and a half to two years, in the same stall. One a mare and the other not yet gelded. Nothing happened but I wouldnt advise anyone to do that. I was really suprized when she told me about that.

    Oh right, I think I'll see how well they get on over the fence before I think about keeping them together... just incase things get a bit ugly!

    Size does not matter, if she wants to be bred and he wants to breed her, they can get really crafty. I have seen TINY ponies breed full sized mares (terribly irresponsible neighbors) and very young colts breed mares, I wouldn't risk it no matter how well behaved they are....

    Yeah, I don't think I'm even going to risk it with them. A few 's for the fencing to divide the field will be much cheaper than paying for a foal to be delivered and cheaper than paying for my colt to be treated if he's kicked. So yes, I think I've decided (thanks to everyone's help ) that I will keep them apart until he's had the snipety-snip!

    I,d keep them apart the colt wo,nt even know he is stallion material yet,but believe me the mare will and when he goes to pal up with her she will lash out at him possibly causing damage

    Thanks Honeysuga, but I only made the decision due to everyone's help and experience, so many thanks to everybody! Just can't wait for my little boy to get here now

    We had a beautiful Arab endurance mare, Soul's Desire, who was the product of a mare (Soul) having just an afternoon in the turn-out pasture with an un-gelded foal. Wise to keep them separate.
