[Return to Topics]

Just had a guy stop by who was admiring our palomino stallion. Wants to breed his 1 1/2 year old mare. That sounds way too young to me. I don't know how that works on the health of the horse. Anybody have any insight?

What age should the stallion be when looking for a stud? I've seen two year olds advertised.

At a year and a half the filly is still developing, kind of like a teenager. I would wait until about 4 years old.

Out in the wild, they breed early, but they are also tougher and scrawnier.

Talk to a vet.
