I only know the gelding part from first hand knowledge. My last horse was a studdy gelding. He loved the ladies! He can and would mount every single time the mares were in heat. Not just once either! After pressure from the mare owners, I had him blood tested for testosterone levels. He is a gelding...for sure. We know that he was cut late and that has a lot to do with his behavior. In our situation, he did end up being fielded with a mare...just not one who was terribly receptive to his come ons. No matter if she was in heat or not.

My advice is, if his sheath is cleaned and he isnt terribly agressive...let it be. I highly doubt your mare is pregnant. It would have to be a miracle of miracles.

Good luck! I know these situations are frustrating...its just animals being animals

They have been together for 8 months and he only has mounted her during that one four day period. He really only acted studdy that four days. He was in another pasture and my other mare would come over to the gate and pee. He'd look confused and pee too.
He's been recently cleaned. She has no discharge. He is gentle with her. Unless I see anything really wrong before the fall shots I'll just have her checked then. I still wonder why she isn't cycling. She should have been in heat twice since then.
She is 12 years old.

^^ Love this!

As soon as the mares went out of heat...Nico the manly man went back to being his short round self. He doesnt bother the ladies unless they are in heat. We are a barn full of old broodmares, which doesnt help the situation. He was one of 3 geldings there and the other two boys were probably gelded in the The girls were actually peeing INTO his stall. I was washing his face and chest a couple times a week because they were peeing all over him. Gross lil mares!

I can't stop laughing. My horse problems are all ones I can manage. I am so blessed to have them in my life.
