any ideas how I can start getting this jack interested in mares? He's coming three, and REALLY intrested, but I'm not really sure how to go about it. Any help would be great.


We got my jack when he was a yearling. He "grew up" with my mares, we went ahead and let him run with them. When he was 3, we sent him to another farm to train him to drive. They were a bigger farm and it was breeding season. Kilroy got interested at that point. They performed several breedings in front of him so he "learned" what he needed to do. We only hand breed him so that we can control his aggressiveness. Now he LOVES the mares but isn't sure about jennys. We introduced him to an experienced jenny last year and he liked her but was too slow
for her. We are going to try again this year.
