gelded late?

Okay so I was wondering about my gelding he's much wider in the chest and rump then the geldings I've seen. He's always muscular no matter if I work him or not. Bu twhen I worked with him he always gained more. He had wide cheeks and has a REALLY nice thick long tail (idk if that helps). His leg muscules are twice to three times bigger then my other geldings. He's also 13 years old. He's about 16hh. Could he have been gelded late? Or is there another reason he's so big?

I doubt it was gelding late. It's just his genetics to be built that way.

Well I've heard both ways and some people at a show (when I took him to them) asked why I had a stud there. Because he hated to show but he was my only horse and he would freak out and rear, buck and act stupid.

The way your horse acted is all training/handling issues and has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with whether a horse is a stud or not.

I know that and its not training handling its the breeder that over showed him before I got him. He's a very well mannored horse. He just hates shows.

It was the other people who saw him said that I know he's not a stud I've checked...

Looking at his pedigree, it looks like he gets his bulk from the topside. Actually, if you compare him to his Rhinestone Jack/TEJ line he isn't as big as you might think...they were both monsters. As NDAppy said, no doubt genetics...

He was bigger in the past years he got injured so I can't ride him, so he lost muscles. But last year he was pretty big.

So he's sour. It's still an issue of manners. He's throwing a tantrum because he's in a situation that he doesn't to be in. Someone (you or a previous owner) let him get away with throwing a fit about being at a show and now he knows he can get out of showing if he behaves in such a way.

Hes just a trail horse now, and a pasture pony. I have 2 other horses to get into showing now.
