My vet told me that a colt just starts to be potent at 1yr, and anytime after that he gets more and more as they get older of course. I agree get him gelded asap. :)

You can geld as soon as they are down. Pistol was dropped from day one and was gelded at 3.5 months old while still with his dam so she could help keep him moving during the day and the swelling down. If possible, that is the way I would do it again.

It is nice to know you are gelding him for sure and not trying to decide whether to geld him, or keep him intact because he has some great name 5 gens back....

We do not geld until they have dropped usaually around 18 months old.
We have never had a colt sire a foal yet and they run in a mixed herd.
From the many vets that I have talked to they cann ot sire a foal until they drop.
I think you have plenty of time. Shalom
