Get him away from the mare ASAP or you're going to have a foal. I'd geld him ASAP or send him back to the rescue. A stallion can be dangerous. Unless you're a very experienced horse person, it's not a good idea to have a stallion.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

he doesnt act like one at all, he is about 25 yrs.old, I don't know if that matters or not, but he is the sweetest horse I have.Yes I will separate him from the mare.

Most stallions don't act like stallions until there is a mare in sight..Then you will get a true taste of why most people don't buy them.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

My dear girl your post regarding what he did with the mare IS STALLION behaviour.

He was testing her droppings for scent and the peeing is very very standard stud behaviour telling all others that this mare is his. She simply wasn't ready...........yet.

^^True, true...VERY true. No matter the age it is safer to seperate them.

... A bit confused. You just got a stallion and last week, you got a mare? Why are you getting all these horses?

I believe that Nancy got the stallion as a rescue and at the time was not aware that he was still intact. As for the amount of horses a person has, that is really up to the individual as long as they are well cared for.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

My 20 month old gelding has the same thing and it is scar tissue. I know that he was gelded and they got what they where supposed to (I did not care for the vet that did the gelding he was rude to me so I no longer use him). He healed up just fine then one day I swear he looked like a stud, at the goofy thing is when it is really hot out it looks worse. But then when it cools down it goes awaty. My vet that I use now took a look and told me that it was just a bit of scarring and not to worry about it.
