Every heard of this?
Has anyone ever heard of giving a gelding the hormone progesterone? I moved to a new stable today and the owner was telling me they have given a few of their horses the hormone to get them to stop weaving, decrease seperation anxiety, and it improves their concentration.

I know about giving this to mares, and I guess it makes sense to give it to geldings....just wondering if it actually worked for anyone.

yes, i've heard from a few people that it's good for geldings that are really sour or have attitude issues. supposedly it works but i haven't personally tried it.
