My colt was gelded around 14 months....
All of his brothers were done later and filled in nicely. Dusty however is still small...will that fill in in time?

The worse thing he ever did was chew off a mare's tail right after being weaned (but he had a fellow partner in crime). No misbehaving, talking to girls, pretending to be a stallion, or other bad behaviors while his tail-munching-partner-in-crime was the complete opposite. Both were gelded at 6 months old (half brothers born one week apart), and one thought he was always hot stuff. From stallion talking, leg strikes, intense interest in mares in heat and aggression to other horses. Fortunately, he had manners to people, but a whole different attitude to other horses (even to his own pasture mates he was unpredictable).

Each colt is born with their own unique personality, correcting poor manners and reinforcing positive behavior while they are young is the best way to deal with colts in the long run, IMO.

One of your mares or an older gelding didn't kick his butt and put some manners in him?

He was the herd boss' son, got away with a lot because he targeted his underlings. He was eventually second in command after my sister took his mom to college with her (just under his half sister that is three years older than him) and he ruled with an iron fist.

But you should have seen him react when he made an error in judgement. I had just put my mare back in the pasture after our routine workout and she was at the very bottom of the pecking order. The gelding waited until I had left the pasture, swung his hind at my mare, she spins herself out of the way, he kicks out and nails his feet into the boss' chest. He looks back, sees that he kicked his big sister and runs away as fast as he can. The boss didn't even react to his stupidity, but he wasn't going to stick around and find out!

Haha, he sounds like a smart boy! I'd sure run if I accidently kicked the boss!

My boy is getting the stallion prance coming in but he has great manners! His neck is coming in and he's slowly filling out in all the right places. Just today he decided to grunt and groan when I was groping him and giving him a sheath scratch. He didn't do that last week but now maybe he's starting to feel good. I'm just doing it so he gets used to being handled.
He was getting a little mouthy so we fixed that with a finger in the nose and that stopped that. He's getting curious about the human males so I'm trying to get as many of my guy friends to come out and play games with him.
One of my close friends has been training colts for 30 years and she's working three days a week with him on manners and over all everything. So far so good. Once in a while he tries his stud prance, arches his neck and calls but as soon as another horse of any gender answers or shows interest nose nose with him he's all baby, nuzzling and chewing his tongue. He's 10 months old. He's presented himself, flopped it against his belly and jumped about 3 feet up and over and then spun in a circle with his head to his flank trying to catch a glimpse of whatever attacked him.

Foal
I have a 9 Month old. He has not been gelded yet, his back end is filling out nicely but him shoulders and his neck is still verrry weedy. He's my first foal so just woundering how long it would take for his neck and shoulders to start filling out. If they will lol ??

Could be quite a while depending on how he grows. My drum mare Is 5 and she fills out and then grows and get narrow again. Now she's filling out again so she's beefed up in the front but I can tell she's getting a bit butt high so she shouldn't be narrowing in the front soon. My colt is very baby narrow still but his body and butt are filling out. It all depends on how their bodies grow individually.

Foal
Hope he does fill out lol. He's pretty but high at the moment. Trying to leave him as long as I can before I get him gelded. Maybe he will fill out a bit better the longer I leave him .

Trained
We didn't let Pistol get the chance to even think about acting "studdy." His fuzzy plums (well grapes for a pony ) and he was already trying to mount his dam (more like play not actual trying to breed, no penetration or attempt at it. With his dam and two other mares in there I wasn't taking any chances. Pistol was gelded at 3.5 months old. Young enough his dam would keep him moving during the day and both of his testicles were there, so why wait? If there are no plans on akeeping a horse a stud, I don't see any reason that they should keep their testicles any longer than absolutely necessary.
