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.
