Stallion behavior

This teenaged bay Arabian gelding is in rehabilitation. Watch his progress as he goes through eye surgery, gains weight and returns to his original beauty!

Stallion behavior

Postby Juliane on Thu Apr 05, 2007 9:13 pm

Buddy has gone from being possessive and herd bound to Dandy, to being downright studdy. Today I looked out the window and saw him dropped, hard and ready.... then he mounted Dandy and bred her. No, it wasn't a 'wanna be' effort - he went through with the whole thing. I sure hope he's shooting blanks!!!

I am going to be having Class', Ace and Dandy's teeth floated soon, so at that time, I'll have the vet check to see if Buddy is crypt orchid and palpate Dandy. *sigh* I really, really hope he isn't fertile! I also really, really, really hope Dandy isn't pregnant!

It's definitely time to separate Buddy and Dandy during turnout times, which is always pleasant. He paces and calls to her constantly. The strange thing is that he does not act this way towards any of the other mares.

I hope he turns out to be gelded! Keep in mind that sometimes geldings fall in love big time and putting them in a mixed her with mares just doesn't work. You may even have to wean him off property or something until he can forget about her. I think you know someone who has a bunch of geldings he could be turned out with... ;)

I had a gelding that bred my mares. The mares always seemed to enjoy it so I didn't worry about it much. :D

Connor tried to breed Sunline...but couldn't reach. ROTFL.

I think if the mares are slutty enough, a lot of geldings will "remember" a thing or two despite being gelded. Most likely Miss Dandy is just being too much of a tease to resist!

I know someone who has a mini stallion that they use as a teaser. He stayed in the pasture with the big mares. Well didn't one of those tramps get down into a low spot and lay down for him?! Good thing the owner caught them before they completed the act.
She's now an official member of the "my mare's a ho" clique.

I have two geldings here at our ranch that are very studdy. They try to mount any willing mare. I have had both of them checked, blood work, exam, etc. just to make sure I wouldn't be getting any surprise babies. They are both sterile. They just enjoy the girls.

Julie - if you are not seeing any "equipment" under buddy then 99% chance he is shooting blanks. When the testicals are inside, they can not regulate temp and will not be able to produce viable sperm :) A simple blood test can tell you about his test. level and he MIGHT be able to palpitate to see if the testicals are inside - however, doing it that route tends to not be overly successful. An ultrasound is helpful if things are in question!

On a side note - if you ever DO want to breed Dandy, at least you know she is an easy breeder :) LOL

I agree that some geldings are just like that. My gelding and mare can not go out together anymore at least where there is no grass cause she turns and teases him and he drops and get hard. Never seen him mount, but do not want to. He is occationally used to tease mares at the barn. He does not really do anything, but most mares in heat find his presence unbearable. :lol: :roll: Nala squirt before and after our work at Noah when he was in the stall. :roll: He was not even looking at her.. :lol:

My friend also has a studdy gelding, who has to be kept with geldings as he will mount mares. My friend is breeding her mare this spring so she is using him to tease her over the fence. He makes stallion noises and drops, but is definatly a stallion.

Dandy should be fine! Like some one pointed out a crypt will not be sucessfully at producing viable sperm.

At least Buddy knows what to do. My daughter's pony Skittles has taken to mounting my appy mare. The only problem is he mounts from the side! :? So my kids are getting a bit of education, but I think it is just leaving them very confused. :roll:
