It is not "just so I can say I am a stallion owner."
I am considering this carefully. This stallion I have looked has been bred without a breeding programme and his owners couldn't care enough to check if he is worth it. I would. And if he became too agressive or unstable due to his hormones, he would be gelded. However, if he was a good stallion and any of his kids turned out ok, I would breed again. Hard to tell when we have our stallion checks when they are 3 or 4, no earlier. If one didnt get the stallion checked by the association as a baby already, you wait and see - they need to show driving and riding too.
Second, somebody said about splitting them up, I already said, I ain't going to just throw them both in a pasture together and leave them be and expect all to be perfect. I do know how to introduce horses.
Third, all horses around be behave with respect and trust, doesn't matter if its a stallion, or a moody pony mare, they all learn to behave and respect me and my personal space, no pushing, no begging for food, nothing. I have made stallion stop trying to nip everyone, same as mares and geldings.
I am grateful for the input from you. One day I will have my perfect horse that will serve its purpose in life - to live. Not because he is built for sport, or was a pasture accident, or someone abused it.. but because he is my friend and we can have a great time together.
And at the moment I am not sure I can take this stallion anymore, as I am not sure that I can deal with the fact that he is 3, and had a mare accident - a mare kicked his eye out. I am sad the owners hid that from the first conversation, and also, not sure I can be completely selfless and make his life as he deserves it adding the extra care.
So I guess none of you have to worry that me and a gelding will get killed by raging hormones of a crazy 3 yr old stallion.
