because I'm old and felt like ranting...lol Naw really, earlier on there were a couple of responses that tried to make it a moral issue about keeping a horse colt intact. I just get a little tired of do-gooders trying to make a moral issue out of breeding. This colt belongs to the OP and it is their sole decision whether or not to geld him. Advise sure but quit the moralizing. Most people breed horses because they want the offspring of a particular pairing, and saying that "there are plenty of rescue horses out there" doesn't wash.. they didn't want a rescue horse, they wanted a blooded horse of a particular line, and they may just want to perpetuate the line by keeping him whole... there I go again.. Geez... I think I need some Geritol or something...lol
