getting him geled will help with training and getting sold.

So Kristine is trying to sell spirit and he is a still and stud so no one wants him. So she says that she might get him trained as a stud but I told her she should get him gelded. So if she got him gelded would he be easier to train and easier to sell he is not registered so it would not really matter if. So what should we do?

Well if he's not registered why keep him a stud? And if you did geld him with some training he might make a good youth horse. Opens up the market some.

An unregistered stud will always be a hard sell. No one wants one or at least no reasonable person wants one. BYB are the only ones but they will pay very very little.

They should geld this horse not just to be able to train it easier or sell faster but because as a grade horse he simply should not BE a stallion.

Yes gelding a horse almost always calms them down atleast some. Studs only have one thing on their mind most of the time :P....Plus if she doesn't plan on using him as a stud why keep him as one

Not only he is not selling he very fiesty and he going on two so I think it is the perfect time to get him gelded.

She needs to geld him. An unregistered stud, there is no use for one. She needs him gelded then that way, she can sell him. No one except what spyder said, is going to buy an unregistered stud.

He should be gelded. As has been stated, no one is going to care to have a grade horse for a stud, his only use would be as a teaser, but people don't want a teaser that is fiesty or hard to handle. I see no point in keeping him a stallion, even if he was very well behaved.

I agree. Cut those puppies. He doesn't need them, he would just create more grade horses. Getting him gelded should calm him down, because he won't have all that testosterone. He still may be hard to sell, but it will definitely make it that much more possible. I don't know about where you are, but here in Washington, there is this program my friend used to geld her boy for cheap called GSS, Gelding to Stallion Support. I could try and get more information..?

I am really going to talk to her now! She says she wants to keep him for her daughter but I do not think that is a good idea. But I will let you guys know how it goes.
