Stallion Question (hope not innapropriate)

Ok, my stallion is extremely gentle and easy to handle. But when I groom him he is beginning to develop a bad habit, he drops down and proceeds to flap his penis against his belly. Its becoming an every time habit during grooming time, I know this bad habit needs to stop. I always hope the neibors arent watching . He is obviously getting to much out of grooming time. Could someone please tell me how to stop this. I hope this question is not to innapropriate.

Well I can't tell you how to stop it, but my friends gelding does that all the time lol and he's been cut for 10 years!

I knew a horse who did this at my old barn. I guess he did it because he was very comfortable whenever someone groomed him. Not sure how to fix it, or if you can. But its not completely uncommon.

Groom him in the dark.

=)

Spent a whole hour today laying in a pasture, waiting for a sparkling vampire to show up. Alas, I woke up and looked over, only to find a mound of horse crap. Sigh.

G thanks guys lol, I know horses will drop down when relaxed. But this is more than relaxation. Lol. I was wondering if e/time he does this if I should give it a little smack with a whip.

My trainer used too punish her stallion, or another gelding who dropped a lot by either hitting them on the penis. Never too hard of course, just enough so it wasn't as fun to have it hanging out all the time. The thing with this though is you have to be consistent with it.

Sorry my phone was slow to post and I didn't see your comment.

Yeah a good tap with a whip works, good aim with a lead rope, a tap with your foot. Obvioiusly don't BEAT him...but he is a stallion and needs a strong hand so don't be afraid to give it a good whack!

Be careful and good luck

Many stallions drop when they feel relaxed and he isn't really feeling in the mood. If he was, hed be trying to mount you lol.

Its a natural thing and I think punishing a stallion for feeling relaxed would be inappropriate.
