    This is a common misconception.

    Stallions don't actually need to be kept completely solitary - they only need to be unable to access mares that you aren't wanting them to cover. It is perfectly fine to have your stud in with geldings (or spayed mares if you have any) as long as everyone is properly introduced and you can keep an eye on things to make sure that nobody's getting chased off of feed and bullied to the point that it's unhealthy (so make sure that everyone's in good weight and that they're all happy and alert).

    Some people will put mares already confirmed to be in foal in with a stud, but you have to be careful with doing so because if she loses the foal, she'll start cycling again and he'll breed her. Many people that I've seen have found that having their stud in with other horses have improved their overall attitude (most likely reason is because horses are herd animals), but you will have to be aware and adjust as needed for your guy.

I have done a lot of research about breeding and know you shouldn't start breeding till he is at least 3, and it doesn't just take good looks to let a horse be a stud. He has pretty good bloodlines and both his parents are known for being calm horses, I have had this horse since he was 4 months and have taught him pretty much everything he knows, and training him has been a PEICE OF CAKE! He has literally been bombproof since I got him, and when I go to teach him something new he picks it up like he has done it before. He learned how to flex, yield his hindquarters and back in 20 min! Learned how to load and unload in half an hour! Infact one time I was working on my mare to load in a 2H straight load and while I was lunging her he got on the trailer by himself and just stood in there like he was showing he how to do it . I would love for anyone's opinion if I should keep him a stud or not, if he is really as pretty as I think he is, information about breeding a stud and whatever else would help me out!!! Please give you honest opinion in what you think about him or if I should cut him and not be just another who thinks she has a pretty horse, and please try to be polite about it :) Will try to get pictures of him up tommorrow!!
    Geld him.
