Little problem *I need help ASAP Please*

I found out today that my dad's gelding PintoBean (15.1hh 1,050 pound gelding) mounted a mare today (probably 11 hands, and very very little). I want to know if that can really hurt her, because I want to tell my dad, but my dad doesn't normally listen unless there is a reason other than "Dad that can HURT HER". But she isn't our mare, she is someone else's and I don't want her or Bean to get hurt.
What can happen to the mare? Can she get infections or anything?

She could definetly get hurt. That's even a big risk in planned hand breeding. Definetly say something.

Best case, she may end up with some bites or scuffs on her. Worse case, he could break her back! Then there's everything in between. They need to be seperate

Yes, he could hurt her though I would honestly be more concerned about her hurting him. When a stallion (or in this case a gelding) is mounting a mare, all it takes is one well placed kick and you could end up with a broken leg, severe hernia, fractured penis, etc, etc. If he has shown a tendency to do this often, then he should be separated from the mare for the safety of both of them.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Is someone boarding the mare in your place? If so the possible court suit with $$$$ vet expenses for the mare may be a pleasant surprise for your dad. If you board the gelding somewhere, I'd tell the BO about the situation and ask to separate them out.

If he doesn't keep doing it I don't think this is that big of a deal. A gelding won't penetrate the mare, just mount so unless he/she is being overly aggressive then I wouldn't be to concerned. Just watch them and make sure he doesn't keep doing it.

I've spent most my life riding horses...the rest i've just wasted.

That could DEFINANTLY hurt her =( We have a pony mare that we got back from a bad situation, and she ended up with a broken tail and a hurt pelvis due (to what we think) was a gelding mounting her over the fence and her tail either getting tangled in the fence and her yanking away or the tail was bent back over her back. If you could seperate them, do it asap.

My horse, Nico, is a mounting gelding. He *CAN* and will penetrate mares. The best possible situation is to seperate the two horses. Put it to your father for his benefit. His horse is acting "studdish" enough to mount, I doubt he's a baby doll when the mares are in heat. All we had to do for Nico was take him out of the field with the naughty mares and he stopped all of his studdy behavior.

We had a girl come to the tack shop yesterday whos yearling filly was KILLED by a gelding who had got loose and mounted her. He got aggressive and bit her neck and actually broke her neck. Bad things happen. She can get infections if your gelding hasn't been cleaned. She can have a tear in her vulva which could leave her unable to concieve or deliver babies.

I know all the ins and outs of 'mounting geldings'. It can be really scary. Dont let your dad brush it under the rug.
