And when a mare owner shoots him- that will be your problem.

I feel like that situation is very unlikely...

Agreed but the mares owner may try to collect costs from the mare getting pregnant.

As he is the one who's horse is tethered and they are letting their mares run loose I think that they are accountable for any unwanted pregnancies.

As I found it very hard to read your post at all- I did not understand that he was tied up all of the time. Still, have you informed these other people their mares could be out with an incompletely gelded horse?
It's all irresponsible ownership.

And by the way I was being sarcastic- as the OP does not seem to feel he has responsibility for his horse.
Are there rules to "common land"?

If he was recently gelded and he has bred before, his hormones are still there and so are his instincts to act on them. As the years go by, the tendencies will lessen. They will still get erections but won't act on it.

Age has a tendancy to do that.

Why is it always the boys fault. And why does the boy always have to pay.
The owner of the stallion could also demand a stud fee, as it was their mare that came into season. They could have taken precautions and controled when she comes into season. Its a comon practice to regulate their moods. Lets not blaim the stallion all the time, it takes two to tango.

I agree we dont take stallions on treks because of the danger to riders but If all of the mares were regulated the problem lessens. Just another way of looking at it.

Are you kidding, Stan? you know darn well that a stud can make unwanted babies by the Many, while the mare makes only the one. It makes only sense to regulate the male over the female. this isn't a boy vs girl type thing. it's common sense.

While you probably don't Have to tell the mare's owner what is going on.. It is the right thing to do..
