Most species are well known and documented to use mounting or other apparent sexual behavior as a display of dominance.
Would late castrations make a gelding have enough testosterone to exhibit studdy behavior?
I was just wondering because I know some people who castrate their horses later in their lives because they aren't sure if the horse will be stud quality or not.

My gelding Loki was castrated at 6 months old. He acts like a stud, thinks he's a stud, and is completely and utterly jealous of other male horses. He's also tried to get it on with a mare in heat. He tried rather hard despite his, as MacabreMikolaj put it, 'sloppy salute'.

My female dog (not spayed as of now) will also mount my (neutered) male. Duke just stands there looking like an idiot while Hazel gets her funk on. It's really just a dominance thing though. Duke will mount when Hazel's in heat or if he gets overly excited during play.

Wait! I'll fix it....

My female dog also mounts my male dog. Both of them are fixed as well...

are the only other animals that will have sex for pleasur/masturbate
Not true. Apparently you missed the whole stallion masturbation thread.

I'd still have the mare looked at. A mare in foal should be producing lots of estrogens; a mare in foal mounting other mares may have another explanation but I'd sure want to rule out the medical one.

That's why I said other. (:
And I meant to say apparently, it's obviously not a fact, I don't know everything, haha.

It's funny because it's considered somewhat factual that humans/primates and dolphins are the only animals that engage in SEX for pleasure, and yet virtually every animal known to man has been documented to masturbate or pleasure themselves. You'd think they'd figure it out?

Anyway, back ON topic, I would listen to maura. It's unusual enough behavior that you REALLY don't know for sure and it can't hurt to get her checked.
