Your Experience: Stallion Into a Gelding
There is a lusitanto/andalusian stallion at my barn that I will probably work with in the not so distant future. He is 9-10 years old. What are your experiences with gelding an older stallion? This guy has a couple of mouthing issues, typical stallion behavior but is otherwise (from what I've seen) fairly well behaved. Once the owners geld him, do you think he will stop being mouthy or have they waited too long to geld him for that to be possible? I believe in treating stallions like geldings or mares, except that you have to be completely aware of where they are, never turn your back, etc. What have you experienced in this kind of situation?
