Have heard some other geldings are acting in the same way now too. And one of the geldings on my property let my chestnut mare out of her paddock last night, had my other mare in an absolute frenzy she was so stressed being alone... and started acting just like Evo - forcing Honey to be with him. She had no option. When I arrived at 10.40pm, she was so relieved to see me. Caught her, took her and put her in with Bailey my mare, and Storm proceeded to try and run my wire fence just to get back in with her. I ended up having to put him in with my horses so he wouldn't injure himself. It's so weird!

I have no idea when he was gelded... I've only owned him for two years.
He is a lovely horse, just an amazing man... just sucks this problem is occuring.
So weird to see it happening in other geldings too! Darn mares ;)

Lol... I just can't wait to bring him home if I'm honest lol.

Dang girl something is in the water where you are! Lol ... you have some smart/butt head horses where you are! Hehe my mare can her her stall open too so I have to tie some twine around it to make sure she can't get out ...

I hope that everything works out well and that everyone (horses and you) stay safe with all their crazy actions! I am glad that he calmed down tho...

I know right?! It's insane.
We are all putting safety first. Evo being as big as he is has been a little bit naughty when he's away from his mares. He just doesnt focus on you. So we've had to be over the top and deliberate about every step with him so we can keep him focussed and he doesn't bowl you over... not that he has. With me I just talk to him and push his head so he can't see them. He soon got the idea... he likes my company, which is a bonus!

Storm however has always been a pushy horse... he's neglected so I have been looking out for him... apparently he has a new home but he's still here. I just hope whatever it is goes away! This is why I don't normally own geldings! But I've had my boy for almost 2yrs and never had this type of problem.

Ugh... there's always something up isnt there?!
Thanks again

Not what I've heard but it doesn't matter either way he's leaving the property soon.
And that's not what this thread is about. But thanks anyway Sophie.
