At another place I lived my mare was a pipe gate away from the stallion when I stopped putting her in with the stallion. But whenever she came in season I would keep her out of that area. But they can get sneaky when they realize they are being thwarted in their efforts to breed. So evidently he managed to breed her through the gate because I had one more unexpected beautiful stud colt born.
Nice to know that you could track your mare so well.
Yet your horses managed to get thru fences and? Never mind.
