Yesterday at the barn Wiski was acting kinda funny when I took him into the arena to be ridden. I figured he was just having an off day (since before the mare was in the picture) but the other horse owner said he was probably proud cut and not safe for mares to be around.
Another person at the barn said he probably only acted funny because the mare might have looked like a previous pasture buddy and he might be lonely. She said she highly doubted he was a proud cut gelding.
So thinking about it. He was caught somewhere around a year old by the BLM. I'm not sure when the gelded him. I've noticed he drops his stuff when he smells mares or gets really relaxed around people, other horses.
So I guess I wanted to know what exactly does proud cut mean? I've heard it means that they were not properly gelded and that there is still tissue left, some others say that it's when a horse was gelded later in life and some say it's just when the horse still has hormones.
I suppose I could get him tested but if he's gone 14 years of his life and hasn't had any real problem maybe it's just one person being silly.
Tell me your thoughts and such please...
