can a full sized horse breed with a shetland?

So, we were told by our neighbor that the people that used to own are horse had a standard bred and a Shetland. They put them into the same field thinking they would not "mate". Well... you know the rest.
WHAT?
Is that... Possible???

Yes, it's possible. Where there's a will, nature will find a way.

Which was the sire? Standardbred or shetland? If standardbred, I could see it happening, but if the sire was shetland then that really would be a feat! Lol.

It would probably kill a Shetland mare to try and give birth to a foal sired by a standardbred stallion. I've heard of mares laying down to be bred by stallions of short stature.

And OP, you know we will require pics, right? Lol.

I've heard of mares laying down to be bred by ponies in the field, so it is possible.

Comparing it to dogs, I had a 40lbs chow/great dane mix that was bred by a 5lbs chihuahua (not on purpose...was told she was spayed when I adopted her, but I was lied to). Watched it happen. Callie laid down so that the little runt could get to her.

There used to be a forum member who owned a gelding that was mini/TB. I highly doubt that was a planned foal.

Actually there is a study that was done that showed that the foal generally will grow to a size that is appropriate for the mother's womb and no larger.

Pictures are definitely needed. :)
