Now that he's older and developed, why not have him proud cut? Would leave the stally attitude without the potential for a whoops...then he could have buddies instead of the lonely life a stally leads...

I'm not sure I understand this piece of advice... what's the point of purposely doing this to a stallion? It could very likely not change him at all - which is why when a gelding is acting studdy, it's advised to make sure that he isn't proud cut. You either geld or you don't - there really is no real middle ground; proud cutting won't accomplish much of anything.

What I'm saying is that if the OP wants to keep him stallion purely for the mental traits, not for breeding purposes, then leaving him proud cut would keep the overall temperment but disable his breeding ability, no? Maybe I misunderstand what proud cut is...my understanding is you leave a gland that produces testosterone but remove the actual testicals. My post was also intended as a question as well :) "why not have him proud cut?"

he is actually very well mannered and have never had any big problems with him around the ranch . Only when he's around mares he tends to want to act up but nothing that might put me or others in any type of danger. I've owned him since he was born I've worked on him for the 5 yrs that he's been with me.. I wont have him gelded simply because I don't think its necessary for him atleast not at this point in his life

Having a horse proud cut really makes no sense - they can be unpredictable and still very, very studdy; even worse than some completely intact stallions. I have never heard of deliberately leaving a stallion proud cut, and personally I would not recommend it.
