Part depends on where you live.
I always kept my weanlings together, until spring, as those fillies are not going to cycle when it is winter here!
I would then geld the colts , before fly season, when they were approaching one year of age, and never separated them, but all my new yearlings were turned out with the main herd by spring
By the time any filly started to cycle, those colt buddies were geldings.
I know that many geld colts before they are yearlings, but I have heard where that could produce problems, far as being able to drop to urinate
I have kept weaned fillies and colts, for over 30 years, together, until spring, and never had aproblem, but I also have true winter, where NO mare cycles, let alone a weanling filly!
