He's being gelded!

So after having a debate with myself, I have decided to geld my wonderful man Khoda.
I imported him from the US a few years ago from a great breeder (Maple Ridge Farms standing R Khasper). He comes from a long line of International Champions in both Halter and Performance (events ranging from English Pleasure, WP, Reining and Working Cow).
I've gotten some fabulous Sabino foals off him who are serious show contendors, however Khoda himself just hasn't matured like I wanted him too.
So, inspite of his amazing temperment, personaility, pedigree, and colour genetics, he is going to lose his nuts this summer!
I just haven't told him yet.

The man himself:

Oh man, bummer for him. Do you have a replacement stallion?

R Khasper is a pretty neat looking guy! He's got some nice foals on the ground. Too bad they didn't show him more.

Thanks! He is a very proud man.
I'm not going to tell him at all. Let him wake up all grogged out. Haha!

Not quite yet.
It's a toss up right now between two moderate bay Sabino stallions. One's Khemosabi bred, like Khoda, and the other is Abu Farwa bred. One's in Alberta, one's on Colorado. One's three, one's eight. I'm leaning toward's the one here if he's still available. He went in for Halter training so may have sold while he was there, just waiting to hear back. The other, HAAP Mirage, is being discussed right now. :)

Yeah, much happier! Him and Blue will cruise around. Blue won't be such an outsider. :p

Congrats to you! I know when you have good bloodlines and have put in the hard work, gelding can be a difficult choice. But facing that he has not become quite what you expected is a very honest and courageous thing to do. He's a beautiful horse, and he will make you a very exceptional gelding. Good job!

Yep, him and Blue will have a blast together and you can get a sabino stallion that you REALLY like!
