Things I have Read
Gelding And Proud Cut
I read a lot of different articles on gelding a horse. Some people think you should geld shortly after birth. They say horses gelded after puberty tend to develop a sexual drive and take on other stud like behavior, while others seem to think you should geld later like at around 2 years or older because it gives the owners more time to determine if the horse will make a good stud prospect. And it will allow more muscle definition and strength. Most of Them seem to agree that if you are going to house you horses together (keep the young mares with the young studs) that you should geld at about 12 months or before to avoid accidental breeding at puberty (18 to 24 months). With gelding comes an immediate cessation in the production of sperm cells, yet newly gelded horses have impregnated mares. This is because the ampulla is not removed during gelding, they say that a gelding can potentially settle a mare for up to one month after castration.
A John (Male Mule) is born sterile, but the Johns should be castrated like a stallion just to prevent stud-like behaviors. It is best to geld in early spring or late fall when the flies are not a serious problem. After gelding you should apply petroleum jelly to the insides of his hind legs to minimize hair loss. You should clean the wound every day with warm water. Exercising your horse is very important after gelding. A combination of hand walking, free loneing, ponying and free exercise are the best ways. Some people say three 15 minute sessions each day for the first three days after surgery then 30 minutes for the next week. And slowly increase to 60 minutes until healing is completed. Which is usually about two to three weeks after surgery.
Now for Proud Cut, what a controversial subject. After doing a lot of reading and calling around I'm still not sure about it. From what I have gathered "Proud Cut" is an old horse term that horsemen used to describe geldings that act studdish after being gelded. Some people say that the word is just a myth and people use it as a excuse for poor manners due to inadequate training. Other people gave some explanations on what it might be. In the old days it was believed that some of the testicle remained behind and continues to produce testosterone. Or one testicle was not removed (Cryptorchid) or horsemen's term Rig. Another popular belief is that some of the epididymis or the spermatic cord was left behind. Another popular belief is habit/reinforcement-if a stud was cut late in life or used as a stud before he was cut. He will carry on with stud like behavior. Another explanation was, although the testes are the major testosterone-producing glands, a small amount of testosterone comes from the adrenal glands (located near the kidneys) This (hyper) activity may bring on some stud like behavior.
Like I said I still don't know. I have one of these horses that thinks he's a stud. I have a lot of names I call him when he acts like this.
Good Luck To You All
