We just found out that my mom's QH was gelded when he was 2. This horse has a WICKED attitude, always pinning ears, pretending to bite, very protective of his mares, gets frustrated easily, ETC. He is now 11, and I was wondering of his attitude came from being gelded late.
I think that they though of keeping him as a stud, because he really is a nice looking boy (100% foundation), but he is really small (14h), so maybe they decided it would be bad to get those tine pony QH genes in their babies.
I also thought that maybe he has always had the attitude, and they gelded him because when they started him, he was kinda insane.
Do you think his attitude came from being gelded late?
