But when you are told a horse is a gelding, how many actually check and feel for anything? This gelding, if I read right, does not belong to the OP and so I highly doubt that they went to check the gelding to see if anything was there under the skin. Another forum member had a mare luted after getting bred by the BO's "gelding". It turned out that the "gelding" wasn't a gelding at all and the barn owner had actually bought a stud colt who hadn't dropped yet, then pastured with mares at the time he actually did drop. It is possible that the gelding in this case, is a gelding and just shooting blanks. The mare could have had a spike in hormones from the "breeding" and goes into a false pregnancy that could last a couple months or a full year with the complete works of bagging up and a false labor before it ends. The biggest concern for me with a gelding mounting and "breeding" is the risk of uterine infections and injury to either during the process.

That is also a concern of mine which explains her lack of going out and I am going to get her palates and examined when the vet comes. Rather be safe than sorry :)

No the 'gelding' in question does not belong to me. I have had no reason to go 'feeling' for a retained testicle and due to him not belonging to me I rather not instigate am argument by asking for a check.

Kiger.. I did not state it was a laughing matter that her mare got bred..
I SAID.. if someone came up to me and told me my Gelding impregnated their Mare I would laugh at them. I know my horses , they get cleaned and checked for Tumors .
and I did not see where the OP has spoken to the geldings owner .

If you politely explain the situation I see no reason why asking for assurance would instigate an argument (IF the owners are reasonable, which may be a big if). Just don't be accusing, be concerned for your horse.
