Been wondering. How early do you start to breed a stud colt should he have no show carrear and what not to worry about? Ive heard of people leaveing yearling colts in with broodmares or a brood mare letting them start breeding when they want? Can a yearling even breed a mare? I know with fillys you should wait untill she is 3 years old I personally would wait untill the filly is 4 years old but how long should you wait with a colt or doesnt it really matter? Is there a health risk to a colt whom is bred early if he could actually breed the mare that is? Also while I am at the question has any one gelded a stallion after he has breed a handfull of mare, can he be trusted to be turned out with mares after then, will he still make a nice gelding? I am also wondering how many leave there stallions and mares together to breed natural, pasture breeding I suppose but leave them untill the mare is close to foaling? Can that be done or are stallions to pushy with mares? Im just curious and need educating in this department, I know many are breeders here so thankyou for any replies.
