AQHA and gelding

Does anyone know if AQHA requires actual proof from your vet to mark a stallion a gelding on their paperwork? I am starting to wonder if my gelding is actually a cryptorchid? Or proud cut? Or maybe just gelded really late? He was "breeding" my mare a week and a half ago, and yesterday they were back at it again. I had to seperate them out its getting so ridiculous.

It is not unheard of for a gelding to mount and even penetrate a mare if she is willing. This behavior does not mean he is not gelded properly but it is worth it to have blood work done to determine his testosterone levels.

No, they don't need a vet report. Most people wouldn't lie about gelding a horse.

I doubt he's a cryporchid or even proud cut. Many geldings will mount mares while in season and 'do the deed'. Doesn't mean they're not fully gelded.

Actually some mount even when the mare not in heat. There was a teen gelding in old barn I used to go to, he liked particular mare and had fun with her like every other day...

Kitten, I am surprised the mare let him, when she was not in heat.

She was kinda laid back, submissive type, and he was VERY bossy and bigger than her. If she would be mine, I'd move her, but they both belonged to BO, so that wasn't my business.

Kitten, I'd have been worried about infection and tearing of the vulva if she wasn't in season. The BO sounds not too bright.

You can have your vet test for crypt or even to see if he's proud cut. I have a gelding that mounts my mare in the spring...

I told AQHA at a show that my horse was a gelding and they stamped his papers right there for me.

SR, she was one of those people who don't take ANY words into account unfortunately. She's "been in horse business" for 30+ years, and me, well, less than 1 year (messing with auction horses in her place "for free") by that time. I asked her once why they mate and if it's OK (as I didn't know really), and she just laughed at me. Would I go further I'd be just kicked off the property (and eventually I just run away as I couldn't stand what was going on there anymore). It's one of those "sadly famous" barns in area everyone knows about...

Ugh, yes I know what you mean.

We have several 'infamous' barns and BOs in my area, too.

Doing something wrong for 30 years still doesn't make it right!
