I rent a 20 acre pasture for my horses a few miles from my house and the neighbor up at the top of the road is WONDERFUL to my guys. When he takes his afternoon walks, he works nights, he is always checking to make sure my guys water buckets are filled up. Anyway he has 5 horses at his house. I have to drive past his pasture every time I want to get to mine. To say the least his fence is not really horse safe. Rotted posts, barbed wire (sometimes almost on the ground) and there is only 2 strands up., but his horses respect that fence very well. I always thought that he had 5 geldings in the pasture (his old mare passed away last year) but the other day the horses where right on the fence and I was petting them and noticed that only 1 of the 5 is a gelding .. the other 4 are stallions. He does not breed them they just live happy honky dory in the pasture. I just can't believe that with his fencing and me having 2 mares in my pasture not 50 feet from his that his guys have never once tired to get out (and we have been there 3 years now)
The fence on my pasture is 5 strand electric fence so they would (hopefully) never be able to get in if they where to get out of his pasture.

I know people who bring their stallions up during breeding season and separate them, but on the "off" season, the stallions reside together in the "stallion pasture" .. ??? Sometimes if you treat them like horses .. they act like horses .. lol.

I know of only one stallion that wouldn't get excitable around a mare and could be trusted (I use that loosely) with just a fence between them. A woman I knew that bred paints had a stud that would only breed when this certain rope halter was on him. She didn't train him that way, I guess he kinda trained himself, but she hand bred him and she always put this one halter on him. Unless that halter was on, he wouldn't even look at the ladies.
