A FUN FACTOID ABOUT PONY MATING HABITS WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT




Mares are usually sexually inactive during the winter because they are grazing animals. Which means they'd rather their young is born in the spring when the weather is warm and the grass is growing.

  3. A lot of animals mate in the spring, and I either never realised it was because of this, or just didn't really think about it.

  19. Are you sure its not just because it's damn cold in winter and who the hell wants to try to get it on when you have to strip off 4 layers of clothing/pony fur to get a few minutes of action? Stallions are notoriously selfish, after all. Not to mention, we all gain a little winter weight, maybe ponies have lower self esteem during those months.
