if you read my post regarding my stally properly you would learn why, at this stage, he is still a stallion. I don't recall once ever having mentioned breeding with him as that is not my intent. A person has a colt or a stallion and people assume you are breeding??!! I know a lady who has never bred a horse in her life and she has also never had anything but stallions as that is what she prefers. A horse can be kept whole without being bred. Had I planned on breeding with him, I would have mentioned it. I ask you also how I am supposed to geld something that hasnt dropped yet anyway in the instance of the little palomino?
This little fella will stay whole for the same reason as my other stally and IF he is of good enough temperament etc I MAY breed him with one of my own fillies with intentions of continuing on a calm line of horse that can make someone who doesnt have $$$$$ to spend on 'well bred' horses for pleasure riding very happy. That is IF and MAY. 99% likely he will be cut. Its sad that the only stallions that are considered to be 'good enough' to stay whole are those that are conformationally correct blah blah blah not every horse in the world is bred to be perfect and a champion. When carefully chosen, even an imperfect horse can create beautiful offspring given the right temperament etc
Thanks for everyones replies
