    Jaydee I am thinking about different arrangements. Most stallions are not as calm as Star.
    Sam is more dominate and will try a fence or so I am told. I am considering placing him in stars pen at the farm that is 3 acres metal and 6 feet tall.
    After I get him settled and his condition back to normal. He is skinny and needs to gain 200-250 #s He paces in his pen but is not able to visit the other horses. Here I hope to allow him the ability to smell and touch them until he gains weight.
    Star was skinny from pacing in his small pen before I got him.
    As long as he can see some of the mares continually and smell them he has maintained his weight and calmed down immensely . I also ensure I ride him at least 5-10 miles a day.
    Sam will get the same attention once he is in good condition. Shalom

    I've only been around 3 stallions as far as being responsible for them went and they were all different
    My granddad had a small TB type - the sort we use in the UK for breeding a lot of show ponies and jumping ponies, he was competed & rode & travelled with mares, he lived in a field with a gelding and in foal mares and was never a bit of trouble to handle till one day my dad was rushed, got sloppy and tried to take a mare from the field when the owner came to collect her rather than take Sarry out first and he attacked my dad with no warning
    The arab I had was a complete nightmare but that was why he was with us and way too dangerous to remain a stallion - plus his fertility rate had become so low he was a waste of time
    The welsh cob was a darling, turned out with the 2 in foal mares, as easy to manage as a gelding and even when other mares were in season he made no bother to try to get out to them or pace the fence

    Removing mares from the pastures is my main concern with allowing stallions to roam with mares.
    Sam has a few scars from testing the fence but none that affect his soundness. I am going to have to be very adaptable with him and just see what works.
    We will start out as simple as possible then if we must change to suit his moods.
    I believe fully in allowing a horse to be a horse. He will have the ability to be as much of a stallion as I can allow him to safely be.
    He is fully broke and has been used in endurance . Shalom

    Donald, if he does become difficult or more of a problem than you wish to deal with, why not collect him and then geld? Maybe that would be the way to go, since you already have one whole stallion.

    He looks super nice!
    Khade is becoming something of a handful right now too, so he's going to get his butt in the round pen to think about a job, other then the one with his little head. I'm hoping a job will occupy his mind and put some manners on him.
    Hopefully your boy will settle down with time and lots of handling.

    Lizzie I do intend to have him collected. With his bloodlines that only makes sense and is a way to market him nationally. I also want to keep him as happy as possible.
    I just read the whole link provided by deserthorswoman and my friend texasgal. They have been very helpful to this internet virgin I mean idiot. LOL
    It seems the poor boy has not had a stable home for a while.
    He arrives friday noon texas time.
    I am now buying equine senior and more amplify. Any other suggestions for getting him back into condition. The vet will be here early next week.
    He has a cut on his right hip that is healing. It is the size of a small fist and about a month old. The lady that has him is very nice but runs a riding school and has about 20 horses of her own.
    As stated he paces but his is kept apart from other horses. Here he will be able to sniff noses and eventually join a few bred mares in a pasture if things go well. Star is to be turned loose with a small harem soon also.
    Wish me luck and I will keep all of you updated. Shalom

    DB, the senior has about the calories of alfalfa hay. 1100. So you need to feed a lot. I personally would put him on Strategy HEALTHY EDGE. There is also a Healthy Edge senior version, if you can get that. It's a lot higher in fat, sugars about the same, so gives more bang for the buck( here the senior is more expensive....not quite right IMO).
    Maybe you don't need the Amplify. Plus a little alfalfa, hay or pellets/cubes, and he should be nice and round in no time

    We feed the healthy edge and have had great luck with it! I have a 17 yo twh and a 15 yo pinto so it seems to do the trick. They need more toning than anything.....
