I havnt had much to do with stallions and have always owned geldings.
Lately I've been riding my neighbours mare as my gelding has an injury. There is no good reason I can see that he is not gelded. Anyhow, he is squealing at the mare while we are riding. My neighbour seems to think this is quite normal. (I really don't know whats normal stallion behaviour, but she shouts at him a lot while we're riding) She has never owned a stallion before, bred this one herself and broke him herself.
Now she is suggesting that I bring my gelding for a ride. I said I was worried that he could be aggressive to my gelding. She was telling me how he's her "baby" and "like a puppy". (Que alarm bells ringing!)
From what I gather he's never been around any geldings. I have no intention of putting my horse in any danger. Is it likely for a stallion to be aggresive to a gelding they don't know?? And if it is dangerous how can I politely explain that to her?
