Studs Question

I have a question.
Can a yearling stud colt breed and settle a mare?

Technically they can; although most colts aren't sexually mature until they're 2 or 3, some mature early and can breed a mare.
The best advice I can give is to geld a (non stallion quality) colt as soon as the testes drop.

I'm not shocked. Stud colts should be separated from mares after weaning, just in case. They can run with other colts or geldings.
Did the mare survive? Carrying a large foal like that is very very hard on her...

You're lucky she survived; many mares' bodies simply can't handle a larger foal. Did you ultrasound the mare, or do a preg check? Did you consider abortion?
For all breeders: please read up on reproduction, this stuff happens more often than you would think.

accually we did not know she was in foal she is a nurse mare so she has been in a a foal and has has an utter all last year. We had the vet out and she took a look at the foal and thinks it had a pituitary glan that was not working right that is way the foal was so big. So it is possible it was out of my pony stallion
