Hello, I'm currently constructing an educational website for the education of breeding horses. It's called Smart With a Heart, and I am going to share it with everyone on the horse forum when It's completed. I would like to make a page with people enjoying their geldings, so people can see that geldings can make great horses. If you would like your gelding's picture on the website, please include the following:
A reasonably sized image (I may need to resize it, but no other edits will be made)
Your name or username
Im not an anti-breeding ratical, but I made this website to educate first time breeders to make smart desions.
I'm not trying to convince anyone that geldings are great horses. I am just making a page, showing what geldings and their owners are doing. I see a lot of stallions that should be gelded or people just having stallions because of the "importance" it gives them.
I didn't want to share it until it's finished but maybe some people would like to see it first. Mind you, I haven't editted the typo's yet or changed the temporary layout. Home - Smart With a Heart
I, for one, like that idea and from what I read of the website, you seem to be of the same mind I am.
Some of the main reasons that I enjoy geldings more than the other genders is that they, in general, are just more mellow. Plus, they are more stress free when riding with a large group of people. On a large trail ride if you are on a stud, you have to always be aware not to get to close to other people and if a mare is in heat, you have to be especially careful. If you are riding a mare in the same situation who happens to be in heat, you can never be sure when someone else is riding a stud they don't have full control over. Not only is that dangerous for both horses, but for both riders and everyone else around too.
Anyway, I will gladly share some of my gelding pictures.
Big John: registered Percheron gelding that is green broke to ride and drive.
Buck: registered AQHA gelding (RIP)
Denny: grade AQHA gelding
Dobe: BLM Mustang gelding
Jesse: registered AQHA gelding
Pokey: registered AQHA gelding
Rafe: BelgianxAQHA gelding (bit of an older picture, he was just a weanling there, he's a yearling now)
String's Dagwood: registered AQHA gelding.
Jet: registered APHA gelding. He is one that could have made a good stud if he had some sort of productivity under his belt. He had awesome breeding and great confo, but he was an unhandled 5 year old when we got him. Not such great stud prospects LOL.
