Could never ending energy meen that he could of been gelded late?? Also whenever he was introduced to a new heard he would hold his tail up high like a stud and prance around. What do you think?!
My horse was gelded at the age of 7...so he was gelded late in life. My horse, Sonny does have ALOT of energy, but that isn't always from being gelded late...energy can be from alot of things:
Too much food (especially grain)
Hasn't been excersized in a while
Senses something different
My horse prances and holds his tail up as high as an Arabian would. That is that I do consider a Stallion thing. My boy isn't in a pasture with other horses due to we haven't had time to introduce him, but he prances even in his pasture by himself. Don't they look pretty doing that?
Do you have any history on the horse? Is he registered? The registration papers should give the date on when he was gelded...at least mine does.
Some horses just act like that all the time...some do have the unended energy and love to prance
