    New stud going crazy...

    So... It's not so much of a training advice, but advice on what can be done (if any). My next-next neighbors got ugly pony stud. Just because he's ku-u-u-uteee and their grandkids can play with him. Frankly with so many nice geldings around I just don't get it, but... Anyway... Unfortunately they put him in field right next to my next neighbor ring, which both of us are using (I work with my mares and she trains her OTTB gelding). So yesterday I first faced him when he started to run like crazy through the bushes back and force along the ring screaming like crazy. He didn't stop or shut up for like 30 mins (until someone came and dragged him away). My mare went pretty crazy too showing off, trying to run and all that.

    I do understand I have to get my mares to be OK with him and I'll be working on that. But it's VERY annoying, I mean all this screaming and noise. Can I do something? Should I talk to the neighbor? I've been on several farms with studs and neither place him next to the riding arena. So I assume it's not something normal, right?

    You should talk to the nieghbor. They are putting the stud at risk by getting him that excited. It wouldn't take much to get him trying to go through the fence. They are responsible for the stallion and they need to be considerate.

    I agree. And that's definitely not normal, to place a stud next to an arena. Although is there any chance your mare was coming into heat? That might have worsened the situation.

    Talk to the neighbour. Thae stud could for sure injure himself by trying to come through the fence. It would be quite a mess if he somehow hade it through, too! If they have a stallion, they have to take responsibility for his stallion behaviours, and that means penning him safely away from others, especially anywhere where there could be mares.

    I don't know the laws there, but back in Germany if a stud is not registered/licensed for breeding, the owner gets a fine and MUST geld the horse.

    For your situation, I say talk to the neighbour and if they're unwilling to either geld or move the stud report it to some sort of animal welfare group.

    Have you suggested to them about him being gelded? It would be safer for the kids.

    I think that is pretty dangerous and disrespectful on their part...

    Germany's laws are far advanced to ours here in the states. Any yahoo can breed anything they want here. My neighbors threatened to shoot my dog because she would sniff around the fence and get their stallion all upset (she doesn't chase horses and often comes with me for rides). They claimed he was a $200,000 stud- aren't they all? And that her getting him riled up would decrease his breeding potential- ludicrous! Well two days later he tried to jump the fence, caught his sheath (they had a 4 foot CHAIN LINK fence for this guy) and tore it clean open. They decided it was too expensive to get a vet out and shot him on the spot.

    Some people shouldn't be allowed to own animals.. not even fish. If anyone threatened my animals they'd lose the right to their own and probably have the entire horse/dog/cat community turned against them.

    As for the neighbours, if after being given a chance to do whats right/responsible... then that's when authorities and so on should be called. The only way to get through to certain people is to go to extremes. So sad.

    Best of luck to the OP on the situation though.

    I would try to speak to the owners as well, especially highlighting that he is in danger of hurting himself being in an area that he can get so anzty. It's not his fault, but they need to make sure he can't hurt himself, or escape.
