My fence for him is 4 strand electric, 7 foot high with a walkway between his and the mares pastures. Two fences are harder to get through than one.

    Splashiano, framiano, sabiano, etc have now been adopted into my vocab. There will be no more tovero. (My friends already know I'm crazy)

    By the time you actually witness him "showing interest" he may well have bred them more than a few times......

    He hasn't dropped yet. They haven't even played peekaboo. Vet says he's a late bloomer. I'm going off of her advice. Thanks though.

    Maybe I should specify my colt care so I'm not attacked. Rock is fed 3 times a day. 2 cups Sentinel senior. He gets 1/4 cup omega horseshine. Access to fresh water 24/7 as well as his own mineral block. Free choice hay, turnout with a run in. For 4-5 hours a day he gets socialization time with the girls. He gets to run and play and be a horse while I'm walking around the pasture picking up manure, pulling out weeds, hauling hay, water, feed, mending fence, etc. he's also lunged walk trot 3 times each around me in both directions twice a week. I was concerned about his mia testicles so I called the vet. Apparently some horses take a while for them to come down. I've got my eye on them. He's checked at different times of the day because I was warned by the vet that they can come down and go back up. She says he looks fine in every other aspect. As soon as I see him mount, testicles or no he's getting sent to exile. Or if they come in he'll be separated. I'm not even sure if he 'll be bred later on in life. Why have a ****ty foal born and have to dump money into it? I also don't believe I'll be breeding the mares I have as they don't have perfect conformation.
