Yeah, alot of people keep telling me that I don't need a stallion. But I love him. My kids ride him. They pet him and love on him. He knows when he sees the bus pull up that they are coming to love on him and he waits at the gate for them. he even puts his head through the fence or gate down low so my kids can reach his cheeks. He has only crow-hopped once and it was with my sister-in-law. Never me or my kids. We do plan to geld him when the weather cools off but only because the vet said it would be better for him since we never plan to breed him. He is more gentle than my cousins gelding and mare. So, I do think it has alot to do with him being alone is whole life. The man that gave him to me rarely did anything with him. His children would pet him on occasion but that's about it. He had been riden about 5 times since he was a colt. And I have riden him and the kids have since. I think he just has a gentle nature. But anyway, I am new to horses and that's just the way I see him. Thanks everyone!
