I would much rather have a stallion that likes to romance than ravage the mare, kisses are much better than bites and kicks.
Is this his first mating?
Well-- this particular mating was his second with Solei, but she was his second mare. He was just as gentle with every breeding with both mares. We bred about 8 mares from mid April to May, but Dream was only bred to 2. There are 5 stallions on the farm. The other mare was an older outside mare who was a seasoned veteran and showed him the ropes so to speak, but he was very consistent and well behaved even then.
