I'm really sorry to hear about Reed. Gelding may be the most humane thing, I can't think of anything worse for a stallion than to still have the urges but to be unable to do anything about them. Make for a mighty unhappy boy.
On a side note, after I quit breeding but before I gelded Cloney, he was very unhappy. Walked around with his ears back and just a generally king of "Skin on Sideways" attitude. Now that he's gelded and can run with all his ladies, he's very happy again. Still has very stallion like behaviors in some respects, just no sex urges.
