    Trust me, I completely understand. Our large horses are completely used to the minis and we keep them on opposite ends of the farm for the exact reasons you stated. ;)

    Foal
    My question what kind of foal does one expect from a mini stud and a full size mare size wise?

    We just got two mares with a colt and filly about three months old. At what age will the colt become able to actually breed a mare or filly? I am not talking IDEAL age but what age range does it become a remote possibility and should be separated from any females?

    We did look at one 21 month old colt that was still running with his mom, dad and another mare. That was our first mini we looked at and did not think to ask how that was working out for them in one open pasture.

    A colt can successfully breed a mare at any time after his testicles have dropped. So it can range from 3 Months to 3 Years. All the equipment is there and functioning.

    Size could be anything between them both. However, not a good idea to breed Minis and full size horses. Likely could produce a conformation mess.

    I would separate the colt now and geld him asap. With two mares and a filly, likely to come in season, you might have your hands full, with a Mini stallion. They can be rough to handle, unless kept in very secure fencing and lots of training to behave.

    We did look at one 21 month old colt that was still running with his mom, dad and another mare. That was our first mini we looked at and did not think to ask how that was working out for them in one open pasture.

    This would be the sign of a very irresponsible breeder.
