God I can't believe we're talking about a horse haha
LOL
Well, here are the two mares in questions. Similar phenotype wise, but not so much colour wise. Maybe it's because they are beefier then he is right now??

Anyhow, I left them in there together and he actually made a small advance on her, so maybe he's a bit shy with me there. Just a pain staring out the window to see if she actually covers her or not.

You could blanket a mare he dose like then put that blanket (more like a sheet) on the mare you are trying to breed?

Oh khade....maybe he's intimidated that he's getting all reeds ladies o__o lol

Or deed shy with these girls. He can't have "mom" watching him get down.......


I'm sorry but I just can't stop laughing at the idea of you chilling in the pasture waiting for a mare to pee and then chasing her to catch it......

*Insert something witty*

Reed (The Ecaho son) is the one who got hurt - awaiting my vet this afternoon for his prognosis.
Ok, so that's not the issue. Honestly have no suggestions. I have never had a "shy" or "finicky" stallion. More like, "If it breathes, let's see if it will stand still long enough for me to breed it." types.

Well, maybe pasture breeding is the answer for these 2 mares..Horses are such funny creatures!

Reed had the vet today and it's likely he will be getting gelded next week. Hoping MAYBE I can collect him but that's iffy too.

I'm looking at some pasture to rent and I might just take them and put them down there and watch for heat cycles then ultrasound.

Sometimes if you blanket the mare a stallion does not like, it fakes him out and he breeds her.

I'm sorry about Reed (I've been following the other thread), but I have to say, I've had a pretty crappy day and this thread had made me laugh. Way too many mental pictures of you running around trying to catch pee and talk to to your stud!
