Just been castrated

Hello everyone!
Im jemma and im new to this..
I have a 3 year old cob who was very placid. We got him from the wild and done everything out self with him. Recently we got him castrated and ever since he has been really nasty to the other horses in the field. They wont accept him and he wont let them get away with out a fight. I have never seen him like this before and im worried im going to have to sell him??!?! Does any body have any advise? I mean is this normal? He has never mounted a mare before he was cut and didnt seem to have the urge. Please someone help me I don't want to have to sell him

Sounds like they are all establishing their pecking order. I doubt there is anything to worry about. I had a mare who was as calm as anything with me, but once in the paddock with others she took on the role of dominatrix!! She was one tough cookie and was known to hunt down a newbie just to show them who was boss. She even ran her own filly through the fence after I'd reintroduced her after weaning.

There may be some scapes and scratches but everthing will sort itself out and once all the extra testosterone is out of his system he'll probably be a lot calmer with the others.

Thanks for your reply. Im sure its the pecking order as well im just worried that it wont stop. The field he was put into had horses he has been with already in and some he didnt know so hopefully things will calm down. One again thanks for your support.
