Gelding Hormones

Does anyone know of supplements that can be fed to a gelding that is acting like a stallion? I've heard that there are supplements that can help balance out hormones, but don't know the names of any.

Our gelding was recently put out with mares for the first time and has now been acting very "studly." He is now pastured alone due to his mounting, but we don't want him to remain alone. Being put out only with geldings isn't an option at this stable because there are so many mares.

I appreciate any and all help!

How old is he? Was he just recently gelded? There a possibilty he's proud cut that will cause them to act stallion like. I have a gelding who use to mount my mare he no longer does. I know for a fact he's not proud cut I had him gelded by a vet who is very good.

As far as supplements I don't know so am no help there.

Regumate - a synthetic Progesterone product given to keep mares out of heat will suppress Testosterone. You have to give it orally every day and people (particularly women) must be very careful not to get in on their hands. It is a very expensive and not real workable solution.

But, unless you have had his blood tested and it is a fact that he has abnormally high levels, he is probably just one of those geldings that you cannot run with mares. I have had 4 'staggy' geldings tested and none had abnormally high Testosterone levels including 2 that would mount and breed a mare.

We never run mares and geldings together -- ever. It results in so many problems with quite a few geldings that we no longer try to do it at all.

Running him with geldings is the best thing you can do with him. Somtimes that does not work if they were not turned out with other geldings right after they were cut.
