Re: [RC] geldiing an an older stallion-question for Angie and others - Barbara McCrary

I guess I should clarify one thing about the gelding that would mount a mare in heat. He doesn't act studdy at any other time, just when our mare plants herself in his face. Guess I can't blame him. The gelding that actually sired some colts and was gelded later in life doesn't flirt at all.

I have 3 geldings, one gelded at around 3 I think, is herd
alpha but not studdy, my main gelding was gelded at 5,
(he's 11 now) has a couple kids on the ground and will
tease, mount and penetrate, other than that, he doesn't act
studdy at all.  Rescued a 19 year old stud, had him gelded
(puppy mill kind of place - he's got lots of kids) and he's
our submissive, low man horse, only thing studdy he does is
poop in one spot still!!!  All different.

Here is my unprofessional take on this issue.
I have ridden numerous geldings over the years.  One was
gelded at 2, never
serviced a mare, and did not act studdy.  One we raised
was gelded at 13
months and acts very studdy.  He could...and
would...mount and penetrate a
mare, even though he is a gelding.  One I bought was not
gelded until
several years old (he is 10 now) and after he sired
several foals.  He is
not studdy at all.  I think it must depend on the
individual.
