    Donkey mares can get pregnant just as easily as horse mares can. I plan on getting a couple mare mules to herd up with my stud when he gets here.

    My bad.. I knew that (mules are too big for storks to carry!)

    But a male donkey?

    Stallions do not readily breed female donkeys. Cassuis is 17 months old and in a pasture with 3 female donkeys. Who were kept with a two year old colt until I sold him recently. The Jack next to them in another pasture is too interested once every month for any of them to be pregnant.
    Those female donkeys do not tolerate rough behavior from Cassius. He minds his P's and Q's.
    I keep my young stallions in a herd with pregnant mares or geldings. Even after separating my stallions I feed the mares next to their pens and that keeps them calm. Shalom

    If you have horses escaping and visiting, it is cute now but will be a problem when he is a stud and a mare wants to be bred! The stallions I have known have been by themselves but near other horses. I don't know how they were kept when they were younger (puberty to adult) which seems to be your issue atm.

    Thank you for the all the advice given so far.

    Cruiser is almost 7 months old, and is so far going to stay intact. I've already found 2 trainers on the local show circuit who want to get a chance to show him, based on his temper and conformation(advertise for breeding purposes). Right now he shares a paddock with our 5 months old filly. There are options to paddock him with 1 or a couple geldings. We will see what he has to say once his man parts drop.

    When I have got my colt foal last year I introduced him to my quietest stallion first as he was originally gotten just to be his companion, they spent the winter together and got on fine and they were in the field next to my other colt, stallion and gelding who all grew up with each other so when they were introduced together in spring it was fine, I did put the colt in with my in foal mare to keep her company she was mean to him but they got on fine as she foaled the next day so he was removed because he didn't think much of the foal trying to suckle off of him.
