As a couple have said, watch for your gelding being dropped out. It doesn't even have to hang very low. This is a sign of pain and discomfort. If your horse drops often and colics, it's a possibility it may have been caused by the pain a bean causes.
I've witnessed my old trainer randomly pick a bean from a gelding after he had trotted the entire arena dropped, without stopping to urinate or what-have-you when he was allowed to walk/stop.
