At my aunts- The TB and their old App stud live together in the winter, with their new buddy Gary, a two year old welsh x shetland gelding. They stay inside. The other two studs are in a pasture alone.

My stallion has his own stall and run, in my geldings pasture. I frequently let him out of his run into the big pasture to hang with my gelding if I'm home. My mares are adjacent to him, separated by pipe fence. He's very respectful and generally ignores my girls.

My mares are also well mannered and we've had no issues.

I do only let him out of his run if I'm home. He's still a stallion and I don't want any issues. He's been wonderful so far and I hope to keep him that way.

Most stallions could not be turned out safely with geldings.

Only takes one good vet bill to break someone of that notion.

Some are fine next to mares? Some aren't. Again, it depends on the horse.

Sorry, that's not true. It depends on how they are socialized and how early they are introduced to sharing their space with other horses/geldings. It's not at all natural for a stallion to live in solitude.

Not all stallions are dominate animals.
I have thought about turning my stallion out with the bred mares or a gelding and keeping the mares out of sight . However after attacking a gelding I don't trust mine with another male. Shalom

Look at wild mustangs, they have bachelor bands all the time. Obviously no geldings but a bunch of boys living together until they are strong enough to have their own band of mares.

My stallion has his own pen in the herd pen. But he gets turned out with his mares, babies and a gelding, if he wasn't so hard on fencing he'd be turned out 24/7 with his herd, when he gets out he doesn't go anywhere or do anything, I think some times he just wants to get way from the wives and kids.

When Poco was a stallion he was either with a mare or with foals/yearlings. He was aggressive toward old geldings but loved the babies!

I used to run my two stallions and two geldings together all the time. Never had an issue.

Most properly socialized and trained stallions I've known did FAR better with a gelding or even stud penned with them. The only time that's likely to not work is if the stud is running with a band of mares - and even then, as some have stated, they've had no problems including geldings in that dynamic.

I think it's highly ignorant to just assume othersise. Two alpha mares are just as likely to half murder each other as any pair of stallions. Temperament comes into play FAR more than gender as far as I'm concerned and have witnessed working with numerous stallions over the last couple decades.
