I firmly believe that anything that is top quality and in a barn with professionals that can market a stallion should be allowed to be kept a stallion; the others should be gelded.
And if a stallion has behavioural problems, he is not stallion quality - period. Only conformationally and behaviourally exemplary
stallions should be allowed to be kept as stallions. The others should be gelded, because they can't advance their breed.
I'm sorry, Small_Town, I have followed your other thread and I know you have already decided to geld him regardless, which I commend you for - I am extremely happy that you are doing that. Please geld him before you sell, if you're going to sell him.
Back to the topic at hand:
I agree with Delete, if you aren't completely happy with him, then geld, sell and find something that you really like - you deserve a great horse, from the sounds of it!! If you want to be able to do whatever you want with a horse right away, he is not the horse for you - he is going to require a lot of training .. I am not saying this is a bad thing at all! It is extremely rewarding, and well worth it, but only if you want to do it. If not, it might not be a bad idea to sell him.
In the end, it is up to you! Let us know what your plans are!
