    Gelding questions....

    Hi. I am hopefully going to purchase a 2 year old miniature colt this year. But I would like to get him gelded first. The vet bill will be $350 and I am willing to spend that on him, but the bad thing is, is that he bites. He just started biting this spring when he turned 2 years old. He has gotten a lot better though, but it still continues even though I scold him. He has never bred a mare, though he has been pastured next to one ever since he was born. Will the biting stop after he is gelded, or will it continue?? I do not want to waste my money to geld him if this behavior will just continue. Will he stop acting like a stallion, or will he act like a gelding?
    Like I said, he has never bred a mare, but he has been pastured next to one.

    His hormones wont be as high once he is castrated, he will most likely stop acting like a stallion soon after. As for the biting, that habit that runs through mares, geldings and stallions, if he is getting better after you scold him, I would continue with that, don't let him get away with anything.

    Gelding tones down the mouthiness & biting somewhat but if it's a habit, he's going to keep doing it. But, if you are consistent in your corrections for this behaviour, he'll stop. It will just be easier if he's gelded.
