Oh yeah and as for him being proud cut... I dont know for sure that is the reason. Unfortanatley I dont know very much about him as he was sold with the farm I now live on. What I do know is he was treated like a dog, then sold to a trainer who didnt have time for him and then sold to the farm where I live.

By your own admission, the biggest problem is that you're not experienced enough to handle the situation. And I agree with you! A more experienced person to deal with him is definitelty in order, whether you have a friend or have to pay a trainer. I also agree putting him down isn't an option. If you truly can't hire a trainer and /or have more surgery on the fella, then the next best thing is to arm yourself with knowledge. I like the Clinton Anderson DVDs on gaining respect. Of course, they're expensive too but you can rent them at a fraction of the cost. The only DVD rental companies that I know of presently is giddyupflix.com. Above all be safe, don't overextend yourself and realize if/and/or when the situation calls for you to throw in the towel! good luck.

Sorry it isn't working! I'll try to work it out later.

But the general point of the article:
There is no such thing as a proud cut gelding in reference to continued testosterone cause by retained epidiymis. This has been confirmed by many vets, including my personal vet.

The epididymis is not what produces testosterone, so therefore retained epididymis cannot cause a gelding to continue to produce testosterone.

-Off to find link for article-
ETA: I'm trying to find another article, and if I find the one I'm looking for I'll post it.

So, again, no such thing as proud cut. A retained testicle, sure, but not proud cut. The correct term for a retained testicle is cryptorchid, not proud cut.

ANY horse can be trained. Its just a matter of finding a techique that works on this particular horse. Thats why I am here. To find different techniques to try. Not to give up on him because he has attitude. That much I do know.

Very noble of you, but you need to help yourself before you can help this horse. You need a trainer who knows what they are doing so they can teach you and help you teach him.

There are few horses cannot be trained that are just flat out dangerous and mentally are not stable. Im not saying thats the case with this horse.

No, it isn't just you. I don't know what went wrong, but I'm trying to fix it.

Let's try this.....

I'm still having issues, but if you reallllly want to read it you can just google "colostate cvmbs proud cut" and it will likely be one of the first few links. It is a PDF.
