How do I know if I should keep him a stallion? My trainer say's not to bother with a stallion and just geld him. I am going to have him showing in the quarter horse halter and western pleasure shows. He has double registered zippo pine bar and joe reed, san pappy and zippo pine glow in his papers. I had a horse with these blood lines before and he was a wonderful horse. Everyone was disapointed that he was gelded, which was done before I bought him. Should I geld him? I'm just not sure what to do. Does anyone have suggestions?
Think long and hard and then think again. Do you want to ride and enjoy this little guy?... Think about what you want to do. And then I hope you geld him.
Or you can wait awhile and see how he develops. That might give you your answer right there. Not all beautiful foals end up beautifully conformed. They grow wonky... or their temperaments change. That cute little 3 month old foal, becomes a nightmare to handle when the hormones kick in. Or he grows butt high and stays that way. Just cause he's a beautiful foal with nice breeding doesn't mean he isn't gelding material. The world needs far more nice geldings than it does stallions.
