Your boyfriend ' feels sorry' for anything that's neutered/gelded......that's called anthropomorphism, not something you EVER want to apply to a stallion.
You'd probably kick him in the head if he didn't listen.

Odds are you, your boyfriend, and the horse will be far happier if his family jewels are gone. Regardless of your boyfriends "personal" feelings that simply are his relation to having his own jewels and rather not be neutered. When in truth, there is absolutely NO comparison to the two and shouldn't be compared, imo.

My mini colt only dropped one testicle which means (as I told my hubby) the vets will have to "dig/cut" the other one out once we find where the bugger is hiding, that alone sends his knees to pinch and cringe. So I can sympathize your boyfriends ignorant view on the stallions jewels.

Simply not gelding a stallion for remorseful reasons is all the more reason to geld them. If you don't have the facility to own one, you don't need one. There are plenty of studs out there, don't let him keep his jewels, especially if he has no redeeming qualities of a stallion, just because your boyfriend (or you) "feel bad" for gelding him. :P You'll thank yourself later :)

I always heard that "A good stallion will make an even better gelding." My mini colt would be a cute producer (of color) but his sickle hock, overbite, awkward looks, argue "Pretty" over "Functionality" thus he's being gelded .

Although I do sympathize with you. A friend of mine refused to neuter his dog because "I won't do something to my dog that I wouldn't do to my kid." Apples to Oranges

Jalter, if you're paying for this horse...or if this horse is going to be staying on your property...or if you are going to be "sharing" any part of the ownership, then you can decide to geld and you don't need to convince bf of anything.

If bf is stubborn enough that he simply won't geld out of a misplaced sense of empathy even though it would be for the good of the horse, then I would say that you need to exclude all stallions from where you're looking.

That would be best for the horse.

I'm not worried about him stopping me, its my horse I'll do what I want. I just don't want him to think I'm cruel for gelding him :P He understands now though.

Honestly, his opinion on the subject shouldn't even matter. Your horse, your choice. If your decision to geld YOUR horse is causing a bunch of drama then you have bigger things to worry about in the long term then whether your boyfriend agrees with your decision.

Nothing has nuts in my house except my boyfriend. If it's male, it sings castrato as far as I'm concerned.

Personally..if I was male, I'd rather have no balls and not breed, than balls and still never get to breed. That's like medieval torture, IMO.
