Men are wired differently than women are. Some men give off a very rough vibe and some horses are sensitive to that and try to stay away from it. Which is why I joke around saying my horse must approve the men in my life hahaha.
Also the way they handle horses may differ from that of a woman. Usually they're more likely to use strength than anything. Maybe since he was gelded, he now thinks all men are after him. It could be any reason. Who knows. But I agree that you can't jump to conclusions. You need to have men in his life, maybe grooming him or feeding him once or twice or taking him out for grass. Nice things, no pressure.. and watch how they handle your colt.
My horse used to haaaaaate men.. he'd try to kill them. But if I'm there, for some odd reason, he's fine. When I'm not.. then he gets very concerned.
