Keeping him a stud you have to definitely remember not to let him get away with anything. A lot of people end up with mean minis and Shetlands because they some bad behavior is cute, and it escalates from there.

Don't let it do anything you wouldn't let a full size stud do.

It's your choice.
But if its skittish I wouldn't keep it a stud.


I just got my Shetland stud gelded.
We didn't give him anything to calm him.

He was dropped in the pasture ( legs are tied up tight so he could kick or even get up)
I sat on his neck, he was snipped and stood back up.

I don't like drugging them if I don't have to.

I'm sorry but did you mean that he was gelded with a local anesthetic ("nerve block") but no general anesthetic or with absolutely nothing at all

We don't give anything to our livestock (cows, pigs, goats and sheep). We just flip em, clip em, and send them back to momma. It takes on average 30 seconds per castration. I have never done this with a horse before so I don't know anything about that. With the livestock its less traumatizing to get it done quickly rather than dragging it out. As soon as they reach momma they forget it ever happened. I can't see this working the same with horses though. Idk but I'm interested in learning :)

He did great. The next day he was trotting around.
Acting like nothing happened and didn't even swell bad.
Didn't act like it scared him or anything as he was still perfectly happy coming up to me for attention.

I know quite a few people that do it the way I had mine done.

I can certainly see not drugging when doing small calves etc with the crushers (sorry blanking on the name). My yearling colts have been 800 -1000lbs when done, a fairly siginificant incision and invasive procedure so drugs are your friend!

Gelding without anesthesia is antiquated, barbaric, cruel, and no way to make friends. It is done in cattle and hogs because they are not considered to be pets and they do not have to learn to trust you. Yes the horse lived through the procedure. He was scarred by it mentally though.
