I had a gelding try to mount the mare I was riding. Last time I ever rode in an open field with loose horses (I was 14 and didn't know any better at the time). And yes, I was LITERALLY on her back when he tried to mount her. Little hussy stood still for it, too! Needless to say, Tar (the gelding) got a sound whack on the neck from the crop I was carrying.

Hoof prints, depends on the footing but yes, and if you get kicked the bruise is different as well...
