    Could someone please give me some advice...

    I have an american miniature horse that is a stallion (he is 33). I also have a 15.0 hands grey anglo/arabian mare(shes 26). I was wondering if you could introduce them, without the stallion getting to excited and hurting himself trying to get through the fence to get to her. There have been a few cases where the stallion tried to get through a fence and I beleive he got injured. If we put them in the same paddock would she kick him or what??? I'm not to sure what to do and would appreciate it if someone would please help me out...

    Typically a rule of thumb; never, EVER turn a stud out with a mare, no matter what. He will either hurt your mare or hurt himself. Keep them seperated, try not to keep them isolated though. Horses are herd animals, so they need a partner.

    I don't know so I am asking, does a stallion ever get to a point where they don't have the urge to always breed? I would think the older the stallion the lesser the would try to breed the mare.

    He will always be a stud. The hormones will always be there, that's just it. That's why the only horses that should be studs are EXTREME quality horses, especially with all the overbreeding right now.
