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.
