    Even if his testicles haven't dropped, or if just one has, he is still quite capable of impregnating a mare. It's called cryptorchidism, and while it reduces their chance of conception, it doesn't eliminate it.

    I would have a vet check your mare for pregnancy. You never know, and better safe than sorry!
