    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.

    I bought him last Sunday on the fair tied him to the back of a. Bowtop for two days travelling home then alternated him with a mare for the next five days and except for being a bit green at pulling weight he went well,but did show proud snorting and whinnying once loose with other mares,haven't a clue if he ever bred ,would imagine he had because of who he came from,don't know how long ago he was gelded,how would you know if he is proud cut? He does get the full erection,not all the time but I have seen him mounting with one

    Well, if you end up with a pregnant mare, he's proud cut or you could have him checked by a vet.

    If he was recently gelded and he has bred before, his hormones are still there and so are his instincts to act on them. As the years go by, the tendencies will lessen. They will still get erections but won't act on it.

    Did you ever vet him to see what his status is for proud cut or gelded?

    I hope you find a way to separate him from the mares before they wind up with an infection, he gets kicked or he hurts one of their backs or all of the above.
