^^^^ hahaha poor guy

AK I think you should be fine using Dez as a teaser, and if not his colt, if he likes the ladies yet

I think Dez would be one of the MOST amazing geldings ever from what you've said about him being a stud. Such a well behaved boy

That is not a bad idea...I wonder if he might still be stalliony enough to tease as a gelding (especially if I wait until early spring to geld)?? :) That is funny about using a gelding with the dummy mare...it is kind of funny because dez actually gets worked up about some particular geldings - I make fun of him about it.

Thanks for the compliments...I think Dez will make a really nice gelding. He is finally trained to the point where I just do practices rather than teaching whole skills. I also lease out most of my horses to kids that I have been giving lessons to so that they can ride a couple of days a week, and I know he would be a perfect babysitter! What it comes down to for me, is that in today's market, he is not paying for himself as a stallion, but he will as a lesson/lease horse. I lightly lease out all of my show horses when they are trained enough so that they can help pay for their feed. :)

Never thought about that....why do people usually do that? what are the side effects? Complications?

They do it because they want their gelding to have more, uh, spunk.... I'm not an expert, but I know they have more stallion tendencies than geldings, but I don't know of any other complications or side effects. I could be wrong though\

BTW I love your new Avatar!

I will definitely talk to the vet about that, as I would love to retain any spunk he currently has anyway. :)

Thanks about the Avatar - that was from the stallion parade this May- we did a short part of our routine bridle-less. :) I hate how hunched I look in the picture, but oh well :)

Hopefully that works for you!

BTW I don't think you look hunched, I think it's just the shirt... I never even noticed! I guess Dez's beauty distracted me :P

Just wanted to stop by and say congrats on your decision. I would highly recommend doing some collections with him and freezing the semen for later use... I'm pretty sure it can stay viable for years, if not decades, if collected and frozen properly. Who knows - you're a great team and might accomplish some amazing stuff, and then those collections might be worth a ton!!
Anyways, I would talk to your vet about proud cutting... I think there are some drawbacks to doing it, but I can't remember it off the top of my head.. I'm sure Ryle would know!
Just so you know, I didn't tease my mare (Dancer) with a stallion when I wanted to do AI, and she had near silent heats, the vet had to do US to catch her cycle. So you don't necessarily need a teaser for AI.
Best of luck in your decision!

Thanks Mikarel :) :)

JDI, that is not a bad idea about keeping a little frozen - I don't know if our vets have those capabilities, but I will ask. Thanks for the info about your mare....how many times did the vet have to US? I really think proud cut might be a good way to go unless there are really serious drawbacks (such as still being way too dominant with the geldings - so that I still have to keep him with only the mare or alone).

I'd recommend putting a thread in "Horse Health" about freezing it and about proud cuts... Ryle tends to only hang out in there. Or you could PM her.... sorry i'm not an expert on this stuff
