This was a few years back, was curious if anyone else has experienced this.  I had a 4 year old AQHA/APHA stallion that I was trying to breed to my old QH mare...He would had bred mare...so I know he knew "what" to do.  He would NOT breed this mare, and she was in heat big time...would back up to him and pee, and he just stood there...not talking, no smelling...nothing!  I even tried putting her next to another mare in heat, and got him "excited" but even then he wouldn't breed her.  It was weird.  I guess maybe he was just immature or something...

Sometimes they just don't find certain mares attractive.  It happens.

Sure, horses buck. But often it means they are feeling good.  You should be happy for them.

He carries me away from all my fears
And when the world threatens to fall asunder
His mane is there to wipe away my tears.

It absolutely happens.  My boy would not breed my Peponita mare.  He would do the same thing--pretend he could not see her.  But I know why--she had many many many babies but had never been bred live cover.  Nor was she about to by the time it was his turn.  She made a believer out of him early on, and from then on, it was a fun game. 

When people would be there when she was in heat, I would get him and show them how funny he is--he would rant and carry on, until he saw who the offer was from.  Then BAM, he was blind as a bat.  Shut him down every time.

Sometimes, the boys are way smarter than we are.  I learned to take his word for it if he did not want to breed someone.  She was the only one he ever flat refused, but he is really good at telling me that today is not the required day for a particular mare

LOL.  Ya they are funny.  I have an older Zippo stallion now that I just bought and he was so funny...he was primarly collected and hadn't been bred live cover in years.  I brought him out to the mare (who was in BIG TIME heat) and he talked to her and so on, then he got up next to her and aggressivly rubbed his head all over her...all over her back and hips...I almost died laughing.  I know he was just testing her, but I've seen one do that. lol.

He's flirting--that is pretty common pre-mounting behavior.

Right, Des.  Happens in human males/females all the time ... you're bad PT - but that happens in humans, too!!

You'll notice your stallion gets really excited over certain types of mares.  My Welsh stud is around TB mares all day.  He'll give them a little hubba hubba wink when they walk by but when he sees the neighbors Arab whores mares he goes nuts Grin

Too funny!  I know that stallions can have "favorite" mares, but I have never, ever seen one flat refuse a mare in heat....interesting......

We've known stallions that won't cover certain colors of mares!  The owner had to get smart and put a blanket over the mare to get the stallion to cover her!  LOL
