    For anyone who was curious, I am in Puerto Rico, so these are also all paso finos.

    I did go to a farm selling 5 stallions yesterday but, nope. Not going there- they were all stalled up, not being worked and moderately wild. Beautiful pure pasos, but needed so much work and care. I don't think so!

    Those are the type of people that give stallions a bad name.

    That is no way to live, if I was locked up, and never let out to run, I'd be crazy too!

    Such a shame, but good for you for walking away, you will find your perfect partner.

    I agree. It was a sweet little old man who you could tell loved his horses but just couldn't take care of them any longer. They really need to be sold. They were in fair condition but they were very high quality horses that had so much potential. There was one in particular that I think could have been great and would have been gorgeous if worked properly, but too much of a project for me right now.

    I'm an amateur adult who is currently leasing and competing on a stallion. Generally speaking, no one ever knows he is a stallion because he is so well mannered. His only "stud behavior" is that he will yell to the girls now and again and poop to make his presence known. Other than that, he's not an idiot and knows what his job is at a show, or anywhere else for that manner. Im 100% certain that other stallions aren't like him, just like some mares can be more moody than others. But I personally feel if you are buying a horse that is a good stallion, it can be a return on investment to have breeding abilities.

    A beautiful stallion can end up being a knock out gelding or even just a nice intact purchase! Honestly the only thing that would stop me from purchasing a stud/colt is if I didn't have the experience or I did not have the proper set up to house one.

    There is a stallion here who has multiples personalities -- just depends on who is at the other end of his lead. Sometimes he is a gelding, sometimes he is a STUD.

    If you've got the know how, and you find the right horse.. his or her gender won't even be an issue. :)
