Will gelding help his confidence levels?
Didn't know where to put this, so if it's in the wrong section, sorry...
I talked to a trainer the other day and she said that in her experience, stallions are more timid than mares and geldings. We were talking about my boy Jaxxon, and I was asking her what I could do to work with him to help his confidence levels.
She said that gelding a stallion will boost his confidence a bit. I didn't exactly understand what all she was saying, but that stood out...
My Jaxxon is a cryptorchid stallion. He is going to be gelded later this year or early next year... whenever I get the money. Hopefully I can get him gelded this summer... It's only going to cost $400, but that's money that I do not have right now.
But I was just wondering... does gelding a horse help with their confidence levels? Jax is a good boy, he's just a bit timid about things and has always been that way. Will gelding him help?
