    If you don't know that a male=a stallion or gelding, and a female is a mare... And that babies are foals... You really shouldn't have a mating pair... Even though these guys are really sweet and wonderful... Stallions are...well, stallions...

    Maddy, why did your mom get you a 'stallion' amd a 'mare'? If you what to breed Shires or any horses, NEVER get a stallion (unless you are a proper horse breeding stud) If you are desperate to breed your own foal, get only a mare that is over 3 years old then, get a stallion at stud to breed your mare. Hope you like the foal(s) you bred. Also, I would recommend that you sell your stallion for your sake and his. By the way: baby horses are called Foals NOT ponies!

    You really don't have to be so RUDE to her, maybe she is only 10 and just learning about horses.

    I am 12 and I've been riding for 5 years. I know what a stallion, mare, colt,filly and gelding is. If you can buy 2 horses as easily as that, and breed them, you need to learn some stuff

    I love shires too and would be so happy if I was able to have two, regardless of their gender and no matter what you call them foals are absolutely adorable!

They say he is a friesian but he stands 18,1 hands and he is only 5 years old he has to white socks (back). Is he a friesian or a Draft horse? Thank you. Margaret

    If he is 5 years old then he is probably as tall as he is going to get. Do you have papers or a reliable source on who his parents are? There's really no way to know unless you have his lineage background. It's quite possible he is just extra tall for a Friesian.
