At what age do you geld a mini donk?
Well ill give a quick background and get on with my questions.
I rescued a 16 yr old Shetland-miniX from Camelot and he ended up constantly mounting my mare. I had testosterone tests run and everything came back fine so we assume he was proud cut or gelded late. I ended up finding him a new 'geldings only' home and he's been great!
So a friend of mines friend has a 3 yr old mini donk for $300 that I went and took a look at today and he's literally like a dog.
Anyway, the girl who had him before bought him from a breeder and raised him in her garage and then turned him out with two horses. A mare and gelding. He was a jack then and still young. He never tried mounting or anything. He was then turned out with only a gelding and gelded at 1 1/2. He's 3 now.
What's the normal age to geld? Does he still have the potential to act 'studdish' even though he was turned out with a mare before when he was young?
I'm nervous to take him on as he hasn't been turned out with mares besides when he was young so who knows if he'll mount my mare. I'm hoping like hell that he won't.
