I talked to the owner of the horse last night. Super nice person! He showed me all of the safety precautions he takes. Explained to me the electric fencing they use and the double fencing they use. He even let my wife and I meet the stallion. He is HUGE! A person would need a ladder to ride him. He is used for shows and parades. He is half Gypsy, 25% Clydesdale, and 25% Fresian.

As I had previously planned, I am going to put up a fence that will keep kids and dogs in. I am not going to worry about keeping the stallion out (even after seeing him I'm not sure there is any fence he couldn't get through).

I will say this about hunting dogs and horses... We have had neighbors training dogs and it has not been pretty. Until there were well established boundaries and a clear understanding between the parties of responsibilities there was quite a bit of resentment between the horse owners and dog trainers. While it has been good to have the horses get used to gunfire even from a distance stray bullets can cause injury to livestock or people. Dogs that retrieve or chase down prey do not respect fence lines and injury to the dogs by a well aimed hoof or trampling, stampeding feet can result. Then you have the nuisance factor of dogs baying and howling as they run across other properties waking those that sleep while you train or change prey mid run and go after smaller livestock not intended for game.

I would look at the horses and observe them for a moment or so to see their actions etc etc... most likely if they are running free aka free range then you should not have much to worry about, as long as the owner tends to them on a regular basis and not just let them run wild like a Mustang. Like my neighbor next door he has a 700 acre farm that he allows 40 head of horses and roughly 100 cattle, he never rode any of the horses nor have they had a saddle on their back since the 80's, they only knew him and once they saw you they would look at you for a moment or two and then take off running. Ok now that all that's out of the way... I have a mare, a cult, and a stud, all three running together. They come and go as they please. I have a 20x30 Barn open barn no stalls has a manger in the middle but all three horses eat from at the same time. Plus all three of the horses are as calm as little lambs.

Perhaps I shouldn't be so quick to jump to judgement, but your post screams of backyard breeding.

Are you trying to get your mare pregnant? Because that is what will happen if you keep them together. I'm assuming that's how the current colt came about?

You sound like a considerate person. I'm sure you will set things up sensibly. Perhaps the first few times you are training you could phone the neighbour and let him know, just so he can keep an eye out for trouble. As long as you are able to discuss things with your neighbour, you will work out any difficulties. Safety for the kids and animals is the main issue, so discussion is in everyone's interest

yes I am and have Bred her I am wanting her to throw a Philly, that way I'll have my two boys and two girls but at any rate I am with my horses all the time probably more so than any other person out there. But I can say if the mare is not wanting to get bread she is not going to get bread she won't let him do it. It has taken 11 months for him to be able to breed her. I have not separated them from the time the colt was born April 20th 2014. Nor did I have any human involvemen with her breaking the colt from the tit she broke him at 15 months. She should be throwing the little one out February 2016

I feel that this will work out well.

It is good that both parties are respectful of each other. Gun dogs are not difficult to train and from the way the OP has gone into the whole matter it seems that he will have his dogs under control (probably training his children will be harder!)

Good luck to you. I would love to see pictures of your pointers, I have a rescue English Pointer, now a lovely dog, works well and knows way better than to chase any form of stock.

as your colt gets older are you not concerned he will breed his mother? Or the stallion may see him as competition and try and kill him?
