    Ive seen a few geldings actually "do the deed" before. If he's not a rig, than I think you are right - most likely gelded late. I see this a lot with recehorses who were not gelded til the three of four year old year. Sadly it is often such an ingrained behaviour that they never get over it. We have a gelding at the farm who can NOT be turned out with others for this reason. If you can muster the funds, get the blood done just to put your mind at ease.
    All I can suggest is to do what you did before and hope for the best.
    Sorry for you being in this sticky situation - it sucks!

    I would be VERY careful putting even a donkey, or other small animal in with him; make sure you pen them close to him, but out of reach of him, before turning them out, and when you turn them out, supervise every time, until you know he isn't going to maul that animal. I've had horses who were like him, who I could not turn out with my sheep and goats because he would chase, bite, or try to mount them; not fun!
