My 35ish year old gelding acts studly when my mare comes into heat, I have no clue when he was gelded, but we've had him for 13 years and he was gelded when we got him. When my mare is in heat he will flirt with her(as she with him) He's never tried to mount her or anything, but he will drop and sniff her and niker to her and such. He is NEVER difficult to handle regardless of if Bella is in heat, he knows that he's not allowed to act that why when anyone is in the pasture

I have met several geldings that display stud like behavior, and as long as they have truly been gelded, it amounts to just training, giving them the proper training, not letting them get away with acting like a ninny at all, and if needed separating the gelding from the mare(s), and working on training first without the mare around, then slowly adding in the distractions of mares and anything else that sets him off. If you don't feel safe having him around your kids, then I do suggest that you find him a home with someone who understands his behavior problems, has the experience and want to deal with them, and who is willing to take him on. Best of luck, let us know what the vet says.

Vet said proud cut not really much we can do about him.

We did finally get him in a stall this afternoon after trying for two weeks. Still will not let us near with out trying to kick us. I like doing this but for safety we are leaving him right where he is until we figure out what to do about him. I don't like taking them to the sales as it is mainly killers there, but that may be the only option for us. At this time I don't know what we are going to do. But I will say that as dangerous as all geldings seem to be I'll not have another on this place again. I have learned my lesson the hard way. I do want to thank every one for your wonderful comments they have been informative and has helped me make this choice. I honestly wish I had been smart enough to ask questions before we got a gelding. But having been around horses all my life and the ones we had growing up never acting like this, I never thought there would be an issue. Thanks again so much.

I would put an ad on craigslist, you'd have a better chance of screening interested parties. You could probably put an ad in your local newspaper as well. There are plenty of places where you can put up free ads.

Unfortunately not may people in our area would be interested in something like that and as for craigslist, I'm very leary of that. Right here good horses are not selling so a bad one is doomed to be with us forever.

Are you sure it is a "bad" horse or needs some training and learn respect?

Pleeze!! Did he do a recatal palpation or pull blood? When a vet perpetuates falsehoods, it's time for a new vet.

LHP, do you have more sources? Medically/veterinary school based? Forgive me if I don't believe a single "horse.com" article. I'd gladly read reliable veterinary sources to base my thoughts.

I agree, There is no way in the day and age for a horse to be "proud cut" No competent vet would leave a portion of the testicle, If you have even seen the procedure done you would see that the testicles themselves are not cut and if they were you could clearly see that there was a missing portion of testicle. I could understand a rescue horse being a cryptorchid and being passed around from home to home and no one knowing, but I find it absurd for a vet to say that a horse is proud cut. I would do find a new vet and discuss this horse with them. Have them draw a testosterone level which would indicate the horse is actually a cryptorchid(and there for still a stud)

I come from a horse show world. Raised Arabians in my time. I also know that some people that had geldings would have them take testicals only nothing else so they would be "hot" all the time for the shows. After the show careers were over then no one knew how to handle them. I never done that as I only had one stallion and two mares, stallion was the only show horse. So, I know this still happens despite this day and time. My gelding is not young and a lot of the vets in this area are just now getting new technology. With an 11 year old horse I can see where it is possible. As for getting a new vet we would have to travel over 100 miles as there are none in this area. Over the years we have delt with them all.
