    Yearling
    I had a 13 year old Saddlebred stallion gelded after he had been thrown out on a 30 acre property with a handful of mares to run wild. He was downright dangerous as a stallion and would go after anyone who tried to get to HIS mares. The vet came right out and said she didn't know if it would make a difference but... luckily, it did. He became a wonderful gentle gelding that almost anyone could ride.

    The way I looked at it was... it wasn't going to make him worse so it was well worth the try. Thankfully it paid off big time.

    Gelding him can't do him any harm and it will probably improve his attitude. I had my boy gelded before he even came home even though he didn't have a studdy attitude.

    Let those nuts hit the bucket at the vet I say, good riddance!

    Also Kudos to you for gelding that stallion! A lot of men feel bad or like owning a stallion because it makes them feel macho.

    That is absolute clap trap You need to get some life experience. Your comment is nothing but discrimination towards men.

    Most men I know leave the stallion as a stallion because the horse may have atributes in the blood line that you don't have the wisdom to see.

    Maybe that is their experience, and a lot of studs do not have the attributes needed to keep their nuts.

    Your assertion that the poster does not have the wisdom to see is equally clap trap

    I notice you omitted the part about discrimination towards men in the comment made it makes a man feel macho owning a stallion. Dose that mean you also go along with that form of discrimination.

    Ay carumba.... Yes Stan.... I live under a rock, have ZERO life experience and I'm a lesbain with a man problem. Oy..

    I've met so many people who don't nueter their dogs because they "feel bad for the little guy".

    There is a man in the park I ride in who comes down the trail sideways yelling I got a stud at the top of his lungs. His neighbors say he never breeds him (thank God because he is awful looking and isn't very manageable), so what's the point of keeping an unmanageable and ugly stallion?

    A trainer down the street got a good looking black draft cross stud from auction. A dead beginner came around intersted in him and begged him not to geld him because he liked his "spark".

    The man at the barrel shows who constantly bragging about his stud.

    Oh yeah, and in my post I said " a lot " of men, not all men. Would your panties become unbunched if I said "some"?

    And yes, I believe I can recognise a well bred horse who's worthy of keeping his jewels. If you have psychic powers to see the bloodlines behind the conformation I'm impressed!!!

    It means that I didn't realize that if I made a reply I had to cover every single base, I obviously failed to read the instructions on the cover page of this exam.

    I don't know that many guys who have studs as their riding horse, around here they tend to ride geldings for work, and have studs to procreate and get into the show pen.

    I do know, from past experience, that there are people of both sexes who own studs because they believe that it makes them look more macho, or whatever the female equivalent of that is.

    I gelded my 3 year old stallion recently, like less than a month ago. He's started to calm down a great deal, isn't as interested in the mares as he was (he was creepy before, would just stand and stare at them all day. LoL) He also doesn't try to bite as much as he was, he's horribly mouthy but it's much more manageable now. All in all, he's starting to turn into a nice calm gelding. We even put him out with a yearling and a pony and he's enjoying having friends.

    The gelding part itself was interesting, I've seen a yearling done but those were peanuts in comparison to these.. melons.

    His recovery's going good. He swelled up and closed early, had to peel the scabs off but besides that it's been pretty easy.

    I agree, I've met people of both sexes who don't alter their animals for selfish reasons (one of my biggest pet peeves). I've just noticed it among men more then women.
