    Your problem would have been sorted a lot faster if you had not given 'minor' corrections but made it one major one whereby you put the fear of humans into him and chased him so he was moving backwards around the stall until he was showing signs of submission. You make him think he is going to die.

    As for him mounting the mares, it is not so uncommon, I have had flighty mares that have seduced a quiet gelding into covering them!

    I would insist that he is only turned out with geldings as the covering can cause mares to become infected with germs.

    I had the same issues with my gelding - not as bad as mounting, but with head snaking, herding the mares, and hard to catch. One of the mares he was with is a real flirt too.
    I am sure he's not cryptorchid.
    Moved him to a different barn to a guys-only herd. It took him a day or two to settle in and stop looking for his girls, but we had no issues since.

    I would talk to her about moving him. He's going to end up hurt or hurt someone else.

    My horse acted like this prior to me even leasing him. I worked at the barn he was at, and he'd run off all the horses protecting his woman.. who was equally @*)#&! And wouldn't let the other horses eat.

    He got very stressed out because of this and tried this crap with us.. did not fly. And wound the rest of the herd up so the youngin's began to act study and claim their "mares" .. including a 3 yr old mare who claimed the 8 year old mare.. so silly lol.

    We split them into two groups, separating Bonnie from Clyde and they both settled down and stopped picking on each other as much and the strange studdish behavior amongst the entire herd subsided and they were cool with each other again.

    Since you have a choice in the matter, or at least some say, use it to your horse's advantage. IMOP.

    We made a plan last night. He wasn't AS bad last night, but still a PIA to some degree. I'm sure those fillies are going to have a heart attack, he came with me willingly, but those girls stood at the fence and whinnied to him non-stop. When they don't act that way, he's wonderful, but they sure get him worked up.

    He's being moved today...whew! Let's hope for the best! At least I'm stocked up on first aid supplies.
