Hmm... I think mom will be pretty protective of her baby. Most of the good ones are. Hah, my horse Ricci is very protective of my little one, Gracie, even if she isn't her baby, she still acts like it's hers. When I recently introduced a new horse into the pasture, the new horse would try and beat up on Gracie and Ricci always got in the way. Is this stud aggressive to the other horses? What is your definition of "wild?" He isn't broke? Or do you mean you plucked him up off the range with the Mustangs and there he sits as wild as can be? There's a chance it will be fine, but just in case, maybe you can talk the owner into moving mom into a different pasture or stall for a few days and then introduce baby and Spirit and take it from there. But if these aren't your horses, all you can do is express your concern and if you're able, monitor and call the owners or vet if something happens. Good luck!
