Yep, you are perfectly justified because a horse like that is a danger to everyone and their horses too. While you are talking to her about separate turnout, you might mention that she should have the vet pull blood and check his hormone levels and his "area" to ensure that he is not a cryptorchid. If he still has one undecended testicle, then he is still essentially a stud.

Well, I did get a chance to talk to the lady about separate turnout. As it turns out, he is really exhibiting a lot of stallion behavior so she has decided to sell him. She feels that it will be a lot easier on all of us if our horses can live together and be turned out together. I agree with her and I'm very glad to be getting rid of that problem. Thank you all for your advice and support.

Selling him may just create a different problem - for someone else. I sure hope she discloses everything about him. So many problem horses get passed along with no warning to potential buyers and someone can get very hurt.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I hope he finds an appropriate home also. I don't hate him or anything. Somebody without mares or with appropriate fencing will probably do just fine with him. I hope she does disclose all the info on him, but I really have no say in that. I'm glad that he is leaving, though. There are seven horses at our barn that live together pretty peacefully, except for the occasional argument here and there. It'd be a shame to upset that over one horse. He acts nuts around mares that aren't even in season...can you imagine how he is gonna act when one comes in. I think she is doing the right thing...although I do agree with you and feel that anytime someone is selling a horse they should tell all they know about it.

i dont think you are being over protective at all. if you horses safty is concerned then you have a right to be concened. if he is either a stallion or a gelding he can still injure your horse, so i think speaking with the barn manager or who ever is in charge about your concerns would be best
