Interesting thoughts about neighing/ no talking. Not trusting stallions or trusting stallions completely. I guess it is personal preference and what is best for the stallion. Safety is important to me but. I don't understand stallions perfectly, sometimes I don't get the way they act but I'm not a stallion but I do try to understand that is must be horrible to have these hormones and urges to breed and to have people say no after parading mares around them,...for reasons they definitely don't know or care about. It is a wonder they listen to us at all. ^^
I think people run into problems because they forget what is important to a stallion. I understand that talking can encourage some to get more excited and loose focus on the task but in my case, I tend not to care about the noises, it tells me what he is thinking and he should be able to get his message to the mare because the mare will tell him no and they usually, if they are more experienced stallions they get it and move on instead of constantly wondering if they could and constantly asking. Does this even make sense. XD
I also agree with SarahAnn, any horse can be dangerous.
Training is important but we have to give some credit to the horses themselves as they learn to deal with their own feeling/needs/wants and learning to deal with our wants. I hope someday I learn and understand enough to train mine even better.
Have you ever been on the other end of a lead line when a stallion belts out his love song? It's literally like having someone come up and SHOUT into your ear. Its not cute. It's really loud and can be painful. And therefore, it's disrespectful. IMO.
Plus if he's singing love songs to the ladies, it means he's not focused on me. Any of my horses that are distracted and not focusing on me when they're working get redirected and corrected. Stallion or not.
