horse sperm

okay this might bet he weirdest and "wrong" question but, what exactly does horse sperm look like? (meaning when it's coming out and such). Any pictures?

The horse across from Sonny is in heat and omg Sonny is in love with her so my friend said that today there was white stuff coming out of his penis...but she didn't go to investigate further.

Now if I'm correct that if that was sperm, and what she says was true, then doesn't that make Sonny a stallion?

If he is gelded then it doesn't have the sperm in it, but I think they can still have seminal fluid. I could be wrong...

the registration papes "said" he was gelded, but I didnt know the first owner, and nor did I meet his previous owner (bought him through an agent).

I didn't know they could actually drop seminal fluid if they were gelded. I've never heard of or seen a gelding doing that

I think it would be pretty hard to miss if he was a stallion...

I know that, but I just think it's weird...I mean not all testicles drop...but I wouldn't know what to look for if the testicle didn't drop. There's no visible testicles that's for sure (unless I'm blind )

I mean have never even heard of a gelding going that far when a mare is in heat! My friend said he was prancing and everything

If the papers say he is gelded, I would be VERY surprised if he wasn't gelded. It's rare for a testicle not to drop, and usually the vet will comment on it and it will be written somewhere.
Yes, geldings can still produce seminal fluid; just like men who have had vasectomies can still produce it.
If you're worried, you can probably have an ultrasound (I believe?) done to make sure.

sperm

Sounds like he may have been a proud cut which means there is still a gland in there that will work and he will have some of the signs and symptoms of a stud I have one here that is proud cut acts the same way as your horse just can't breed the mares

I would agree...either he was proud cut, or do you know what age he was gelded or if he was ever used as a stallion prior to gelding?

I have a now gelded stallion (is that an oxymoron ) He's been a gelding for 2 years now, but was used as a stud for two breeding seasons. He still thinks he's a stallion, less the total testosterone aggression. He will protect, herd and chase the other geldings away when the mares are in heat. He will mount and "do" a mare. He is not proud cut. Got both testicles and the epididymus were removed.

So, as for your gelding...they can and some do...if I may be so blunt masturbate. That mare must be a looker and he must REALLY be in LOVE!

I do not know the age when he was gelded. The papers say it was the day when the previous owner bought him...but it also says that if the date of gelding is unknown, put date of sell.

I really know nothing on his past life....all I know is that he is REALLY vocal, loves mares, and will only drop when he's close to a mare in heat.


^^That is Sonny's love. She's a TB/Belgian cross
