Hey guys! I need some help! I am really interested in buying an appy stallion who is about 2 years 2 months. He seems like an incredible baby and I am really hoping to be able to do the work myself to train him.
1) when do you geld them?
2) I have an older mare who has had 2 in her younger years. Her previous owner, who foaled the 2nd filly, said that she wasn't the best mother. She tended to get grumpy with her and stuff. Pretty much all horses she is with now never make her cranky and she is great with them. I am wondering if she might be rude to the appy or if she would be fine since its not her own. My personal opinion is that it was because the first colt she had was taken away from her at a VERY young age, and so she became bitter toward foals. But I have no clue how she would react to having another with her.
Thanks so much for all your help!
