She didn't show him in 4-H when he was a stallion. She's in it now becuase he's a gelding. She told me yesterday she's trying to sell him. It breaks both of our hearts but he's just not the same anymore. :(

I'd say shame on her. If she doesn't know enough about what happens when stallions are gelded she doesn't deserve what sounds to be a perfectly good horse if given the chance without his dangly bits.

Excuse me this is my friend you are talking about! Watch your mouth!

He's just so different and she didn't have a choice. He was perfect when he was a stallion but her dad just called the vet out one day and told her she didn't have a choice in the matter. He's so dumb. :( I accually feel sry for Cody becuase he's just allways so sad. And I can't belive a horse jumping 4'6" suddenly won't even canter. It's sad and her dad won't let her get another stallion so she wants a mare. I think she wants a quarter horse or a friesian. Friesians are soooo exspensive but they are soooo beautiful.

Just how long ago did she geld this horse? Are you sure the issue is with the gelding and not an injury?

I stand by what I said. I think it's sad to get rid of a horse for that sort of reason. Obviously horses change when they are gelded. Which is why some geldings are a lot more quiet in nature than a stallion I.e. - can be easier to handle.

There are so many horses out in the market right now with no guarantees that don't go to auction.

Horses should not be that disposable.

Why would he be disposable if he goes to a home where they can use him for little kids. She wants a high strung jumper.

The sad thing is... they are to tons of people... they can be trade in on a newer better taller fancier one w/out a second glance....

Are you SURE there is not something wrong w/ this horse? I've seen horses in there 20's get gelded and still perform as good as before if not better.

And just where was she jumping this horse 4 feet? I'm just really curious...

She called the vet out two days ago and they said it was in top physical conditionl. She jumps him 4ft at her house. She showed him 2 and 3 ft. But now he won't even jump 1ft! Which is strange. She's not happy with him and he's miserable just standing in a stall all day long.
