When we put him in a field with just geldings, he eventually adjusted. It took awhile. During the adjustment stage he paced and called... sounded just like a stallion. He eventually got over it and we NEVER pastured him with mares again. This may be what you'll have to do. It does get better (at least it did for me.) Good luck!
Thanks for your reply! Makes me feel better to hear that it improved! I definitely don't ever plan on turning him out with mares again! Was he still able to see the mares once you moved him to his gelding field? That's my only concern about him not adjusting is because although he is not directly over the fence line he is still so close to them. He still follows their every move, I worry that he still considers himself to be pastured with them! Posted via Mobile Device
