Re: [RC] Stallions - Mickie Newnam

Very true! I was taught about stallions by my friend Donna, who owned the breeding farm where my gelding was bred and where I boarded for about 20 years. The stallions there are all kept where they can touch and socialize with other horses. They are taught that there's a time and a place for breeding and certain equipment used for that and that's all. The stallions know when we bring them in from their field if there are mares nearby they can strut and puff themselves up, but that's it. The biggest problem is one who was an orphan, and that's because we did all the things you're not supposed to do with orphans so he's spoiled rotten. But yet when he's brought out to breed he's a perfect gentleman, because he's never been given the choice of doing anything else. If one of the stallions gets stupid, they get put away to think about it! My gelding's sire, Abi-Khan+, could be ridden with, trailered with, and tied next to other horses without incident. He'd ponied horses in who were acting stupid or had tack failure. He was used some for lessons.
To Deanna, Jinnifer, Jon and whoever else I know who's going to Hopkins Creek, good luck! Give Jeanie a hug for me; she'll take good care of you. And she can also tell you about Donna's threats to Abi-Khan+ if he didn't behave...

Mickie (OH) -- supposed to be going to a CTR this weekend but if it's as sloppy there as it is here may decide to stay home.

The ONLY thing different from a Stallion and a Gelding is the Stallion has balls! (and a smart one knows what there for.. and WHEN to use them!) That's it!!! That is great you're getting your NEW MAN (I only say man...well you know why!) YOUNG. Teach him.... You'll do fine. I have seen the MOST terrible of all sexes... but man, direction is a good thing.. No matter what's under that tail!

I look forward to riding with a STUD <eg> this weekend!
Hopkins, here we come!
Cya all
