Thank you. As soon as I get enough money, it's
going to be done as soon as possible!

No, sadly I don't have any pics just yet, will

I am sure you will never regret gelding him. If you got him for a really good price, he is definitely not stallion quality.

My gelding WAY easier in all training aspects than my stallion, and also easier than the mare! My stallion is very sweet, gentle, and mannered, but I think that there is always something else on his mind, making it so all of the focus is never on training - taking everything a bit longer to teach. :)

Most professional horses are mares or stallions.

I think it really depends on the stallion. You can ride our stud thru a field of in heat mares and he will not flinch when he is under saddle...when he is not...different story!

But if you got your stallion cheap he is probably not stallion material and will be better as a gelding.
