Since you know little of his history....

Another possibility could be over active/hyper active adrenal glands. I don't know if anything can be done to help with that...I would ask your vet for suggestions.

from what little I know I don't think there is anything that can be done for that. How long exactly does a mare stay in heat? (never owned a mare so I don't know haha). Hopefully it will all stop once she's out of heat....that mare is really the only mare he's interested in, but I guess I'll be cautious when riding in the arena with one of the other mares that's in heat. Will check before to make sure cause Sonny might fall in love with them also haha

Varies from mare to mare...cycles are 18-31 days (roughly), with 3-8 days where she is receptive to the stallion (will stand for him.) Stallions usually show interest just within that 3-8 time period, but others, especially ones that run with a herd, will show interest for much longer periods of time. That's the testosterone and the stallions need to protect his gals for survival!

You might want to find a good stallion trainer to help you redirect his attention and focus to listening to you.

he listens to me fine....the owner of the mare that he loves NEVER (and I mean NEVER) comes to ride her or do anything with her. She hasn't been ridden in at least 6 months (if not more). He doesn't seem overly pushy or rude when he's near her. He listens fine for me...now if someone else was leading him he might give them a problem...but he knows I'm the lead mare.

All I have to do is turn him in a circle or back him up and his attention goes back on me.

Sounds like you have more than the bases covered with him....that's a shame about the mare...sounds like your boy is the sensitive type and would like to console her with more than just talk!

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?
he could have been gelded incorrectly. I don't remember what that's called.but he could have.
