I, personally, would be far more concerned about injury then about potential foals. It is extremely unlikely that he will manage to breed adult size mares through a fence - possible, but unlikely.
However, I was around when a gelding suffered a leg injury so severe he required surgery. After surgery, he went to get up, his bad leg wouldn't support him, and he broke it in the hip, resulting in him being put to sleep (I was present for this horrific display). What had happened? He was used as a "teaser gelding" because he was so good at it - Elaine had left him unsupervised to watch the phone, and he got angry and kicked a stock fence gate - his leg went right through it, causing extensive damage to his hock.
Mares are notorious for being, literally, "teases". I would be extremely concerned about them picking fights with the stud, and then kicking a solid steel panel and causing injury in any number of ways.
I would seriously discuss this. There are SO many things that can go wrong with a stud in such close quarters, I really wouldn't want to see your girl get hurt.
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
