gelding rig

Hi just brought a seven yrs old gelding back from a fair ,I noticed on the road back down when we camped up that he was showing a bit of stallion tendencies to the mares,when we got back home(yesterday) I threw him in a field that I rent (with two other people)who have mares ,he was whinnying and snorting a bit ,I watched for a while and they all settled down so I left ,but when I went back today he has brought the two mares into horsing and whilst I was there I saw him drop his sheath and get. A full erection trying to cover one of them.obviously he is Riggy,is there anything else a vet can do to lessen this ,he has been properly cut already

Horses are animals. It comes natural. Its hard to program or fix something that is in there DNA. I have seen geldings gelded early in life and even down the road they where still showing stallion minds. The best thing to do is to take me him. Have a stud chain under his chin. Do not put it over the nose. If you do you could hurt your horse. Then walk him up to the mares. If he starts getting silly give him a good jerk. Repeat, Repeat...etc till he stops and then reward. You just need to take him away from the mares.

Yeah your right, I was just hoping there may have been some sort of medication,that I had ent heard about,it won't be a problem keeping him away from the mares,because as soon as the other owners click to what's happening,myself and paddy will be getting evicted lol

Be very careful with him mounting mares, specially if he is on a regular basis. I worked at one barn where a gelding was turned out with a mare. He got frisky in spring and mounted her. Ended up hurting her back end pretty bad and she was off for over half a year, still isnt the same to ride a couple years later.

Do you know if he's a proud cut gelding? Might want to see that asap.

However if it continues it may be a good idea to separate them.

I had to take him out today,away from the mares I put him on a tether,he is definitely cut right,but I think the jerk would ride a cat

I yoked him up today in a four wheeler and took him collecting scrap he was very well behaved but not used to pulling weight he kept jumping into the collar to set off and eventually broke one of the traces,but I think he will make a good user

I was just thinking that my 15yo mare would LOVE it if either of the two 7yo geldings would give her that kind of attention! She wants another foal so badly. I'm the mean one, here. =b

Did you have him before the fair or did you get him there? Did he just start showing these tendencies at the fair and not before with the mares? How do you know for sure he isn't proud cut? How long ago was he gelded? Did he breed before being gelded?

We have geldings that were cut early, cut late and proud cut but cut again. Most will drop out when there's a mare close that's in heat. Granted, I haven't seen them try to mount but they do groom the mare and sometimes act like a stallion. It's boys being boys. As long as he behaves while rode, I wouldn't worry to much about pasture antics.
