Speed racer, it seems the statements I've posted anger you. I really don't care to make friends, I'm only offering helpful advice when I have something to offer on a post, as it may help someone with their horse. Some people benefit from other people's experiences.
As for the appearance, I'm not talking about a thick, cresty neck. Anyone with a good eye can see the difference, and knows what I'm talking about in the difference between a gelding that was cut while immature, and it's not just the neck.
It seems the common sense reasons we wait to geld later anger you. I've posted some very good reasons that some owners of colts may not be aware of. Some people may not know gelding too soon affects their appearance. I'm not all high and mighty, but I think it's asinine to geld a 3 month old, or even 7 month old. I didn't claim to be better, I claimed we probably geld more than many people. You seem awfully angry at being presented with perfectly logical reasoning and common sense.
You obviously know nothing about the signs, or what I'm talking about. If you looked into it at all, you'd understand planetary movement is precisely why the dates change each month. Many people who raise a lot of livestock be it horses, cattle, etc. know about the signs. This even applies to planting crops. It's not superstition, my dear. God gave us the signs in the sky to know when to plant, and care for our God given livestock. Even the Bible mentions the signs in the sky, but I'm going to get into Scripture with you.
While I may be strange to you, I find you to be quite rude.
