I have no idea what my fear is. I've spoken with the vet who will be doing the gelding and he has vast experience with gelding older stallions (Poco is 9 now) and has no fear about that. I am completely aware he'll still be my big baby and lover boy afterwards since he doesn't act at all like a stallion now.
I could just use some moral support here you guys. It's tough having a stud for the past 7 years and then making this decision but I know it's in his best interest both physically and mentally. I want my son to be able to start showing him in the next year or two and kids simply can't show stallions.
