Is it the money? Use the money from covering those two Jutland mares.
Talk to Poco1220 on here. She had an absolutely superb paint stallion that she used to breed and then made the decision to geld him when she was no longer going to use him for breeding. Come to find out, he made an even better gelding!
The thing about a stud is that, no matter how well they are trained, you always have to watch them and be on alert. Natural instincts (especially the instincts to breed) can take over at any moment and can, and will, override any training he has. The desire/instinct to procreate comes before all and they don't have the reasoning abilities of humans to say "Wait, what I'm doing may hurt someone or goes against all the training I've had."
The life of a stud unable to breed is no life I'd wish on even the rankest stallion. Nothing but endless frustration, which can easily turn to violence.
Everyone always says "But Snookums would never hurt me"...and then they end up in the hospital because "Snookums" did what any stallion intent on mating would do and removed the obstacle (the owner) keeping him from doing what millions of years of biology and instinct is telling him to do.
