    Equilove, Shananigan, if you read the poster's other thread here:

    Sundance's Breed? New pics.

    You will understand why I am frustrated. People refusing to provide vet care for their horses is a huge issue I take with some folks. The OP has posted several different "behaviors" this horse has displayed which would be indications that something might be wrong, and she has been told by several people that the horse appears to have some kind of problem going on, yet she refuses to acknowledge it and insists the horse fine. She then goes on to post THIS thread, seeing his unusual movement in his hind and and wanting to delude herself that, instead of being caused by discomfort or pain, he must be doing some unusual form of gaited movement. I just find it really irritating when someone only sees what they want to see, and it's to the detriment of the horse in their care.

    How long have you had horses? It takes awhile before you can see certain things. I noticed right away that there appears to be something whonky going on with his back end. He's not gaiting, he's obviously hurting somewhere.

    What different behaviors have I posted that he's doing to indicate a problem? And how exactly am I refusing to provide vet care?? We haven't gelded him yet because it isn't something that must be done ASAP. He has wonderful manners and we don't see the immediate need to do it right away. I'm not using him for a breeding stud and don't plan to.
    We will probably wait now and do it in the fall when it cools down so we don't have the flies as bad and most vets here won't even geld when it's hot. We have already checked.
    As for his soreness, no, he has never acted at all like his back was sore and I didn't see any tail wringing or didn't notice it because his tail is so short but he has never been lame or moved sore before and I have owned horses and been around them a long time. Usually I spot a sore horse pretty well and I just haven't seen anything indicating he is lame, sore,off whatever. If I did see anything that hinted he was sore he'd be checked all over and rested and if it didn't improve he'd be going to the vet. He's been "wagging" his tail ever since we got him so it's not an unusual thing for him. I always read a loose tail was better than a stiff tail.

    Have you not read what people have posted here and on your other thread? Are you pretending to not see what people have posted?

    I can see we're wasting our time.

    Horsecrazy, you go ahead and believe there's nothing wrong with your horse, but please STOP posting videos of an animal obviously in pain and asking for our opinions. That horse needs to see a vet, whether or not you believe it.

    He's NOT gaited, and he's NOT a Morgan; he's a grade paint or QH. There's nothing wrong with him being a grade horse although you seem to have an issue with it, otherwise you'd quit asking and hoping for a different answer.

    I can see waiting until it cools down to geld him, so that part makes sense. I just hope you don't have any mares and very good stallion fencing, or you might wind up with some unexpected pregnancies.

    It would make sense to me if she just got him. It does not make sense to me since she has had him since last fall and gelding could have easily been done last fall or this spring.

    Not arguing that point, but what's done is done. Or in this case, what wasn't done isn't done.

    Can't geld him during the summer because of his risk of infection, and the fact that bugs would literally eat him alive right now.

    I don't know where you live, but around here, the past 8 months that you've owned him for have provided ample cold weather and fly-less months for gelding. That you do not see it as a necessity is a problem, as it indicates that you don't give a darn if the horse breaks into a neighboring mare's pasture, or is riding a super-hormone high yet can't have a mare. I'm among those who believe stallions whose owners do not intend to breed them SHOULD BE GELDED SOONER RATHER THAN LATER. It's just plain not fair to allow a stallion to suffer through not being able to quench that desire, ever. If he's not going to be a stallion when he's 5, or 10, or 20, why should he be a stallion now? The "ASAP" factor in it is, what if he escapes? What if he becomes unsafe unexpectedly as a mare walks by his pasture? What if he charges through your barbed wire on a hormone high? There are just too many "what if's" to not have gelded him.

    First off, he hasn't shown any inclination to want to go visiting with the neighbors. He doesn't bother them, the fence,etc, and they are close enough they can touch noses and such. He's been with my mare Chanti since day one and if they breed and she gets pregnant it won't be any great big deal. They both have nice temperaments and I was going to breed her anyway, the resulting foal would be kept, not sold for a buck. I don't care that he's a mutt, we were simply curious like other people who have posted threads wondering what their horse was. I never once have said "No, I don't think you are right." I have said if he is a QH or a Paint or a mix of 5 breeds I don't care. He has nice smooth movements plus the best personality of any stallion I've ever seen. It's our decision to geld him or not and frankly with his personality and disposition I don't see the harm in keeping him a stud a few more months.
    As for the wagging tail, I looked back over all the videos I've ever taken and his wagging tail is him trying to flick flies with it. That's the only thing I can see him wagging his tail about. It's hot here, flies and mosquitoes are BAD, worse than usual because of all the flooding we had. Again, the only thing we see maybe off is he overstrides and he doesn't pick up the right lead in his lope.
