Stallion at 8 weeks old??
Hi. My Dutch Warmblood colt is only 8 weeks old but has the BEST textbook serving technique, standing absolutely vertical on his tippy toes no less! When he's finished with mum, he hops off and runs calling to check out the mare next door! The thoroughbred stud farm owner says she's never seen anything like him. That being said, he has the sweetest temperament and never kicks or tries to bite people; I take me three year old daughter into him often and he has walked around his paddock with her toys on his back. My question is, should I be considering an early gelding for this black beauty? How early can I geld him without growing a weed? He is bred to be compact and powerful, a bouncy Dutch ball, and I don't want him to turn into a "Hanoverian"! Beautiful as a they are, if that's what I wanted I could have bred for that shape. Any advice?
