My boy was 2 years old when he bred three mares. He turned into a terror, caused injuries and was gelded at 3 years old.
He has been a gelding for 4 years now and still act's studly to an extent.
The vet gave him an exam two years ago and cleared him of any testicle problems and cryptic issues and he is 100% fine just may have testosterone left.
He is the alpha in the pasture, moving mares around from other geldings. He will run himself into the ground circling his band of mares. He acts like a stallion in the wild. He will toss his head around and always be first for anything. From water trough to being lead in or out. If there is a foal in the herd he is a babysitter and always close to the broodmare but never to close.
Very interested to find out what everyone here thinks about stagy geldings.
I have known a few different stallions gelded at different ages with many foal crops and none of them act like a stud anymore.
