I rode him yesterday!! It was just starting to rain as I got to the barn but I was determined to give it a try. Only have an outdoor arena, we were both thoroughly soaked by the time we did 3 short walking laps in the arena. Was good to throw my leg over a horse again. And he is such a gentleman, little rusty but more than willing to do what was asked. I will be doing some lessons with him once he gets a little bit more weight on. He shines like a polished copper penny, its pretty amazing; never had a horse that was so shiny before.

 

I missed having an older horse in the barn, something about them relaxes me.

After having Treasure for only a few short months I have talked to Dawn about terminating the lease at the end of the contract trial period. I really thought having a nice well behaved well trained stallion would be something that would help me gain my confidence working with studs, but it did nothing but solidify my desire to not own a stallion at all. He never did anything to cause me to come to this decision, at least nothing that stallions don't just do. He leads beautifully, rides wonderfully, is so sweet and gentle little kids can lead him around and groom him all over, but he is still a stallion. Where he sleeps at night and where he gets turned out becomes all to complicated when you have 2 stallions, 2 mares and only 3 fields. When Treasure came Maverick was supposed to be in training for 4 months, but it ended short at only 60 days due to a small injury that needed a few weeks to heal. When he came home things got interesting. Maverick was WAY better behaved than when he left. No more calling while leading. I had thought I would have more done on my property before he came back and that I could start moving horses over to the new property. What ended up happening was 3 horses locked in the barn full time with only one having access to a paddock. If I let the girls out and Mav could hear/see them talking to Treasure, even from a distance away he would get upset, call pace and kick around his stall. Treasure would pace when the girls were out and he was locked in. I tried many different combinations to try and find something suitable. But everything I tried just infuriated me more and more. I now have my mares on my property and only the boys are left at the old barn, its PERFECT. Treasure really is awesome and Maverick is about as close to a gelding as you can get now. They both are so long as you don't put them face to face (obviously) But I just don't want to EVER deal with this again, I liked my life when it was simpler, mares and geldings all out in the pasture. being able to open the gate and lead the whole group from pasture to the barn at liberty. It was a pretty sweet life before having to worry about the mares kicking fencing or antagonizing the stallions. I think I have had more damage to my fencing in the last year from the MARES because of the stallion(s) than ever before. The studs are actually very easy on the fencing, hot wire is used as an accent, but not really needed.

I would agree that stallion ownership isn't for everyone. I certainly understand the desire for fewer complications!  ;)

I commend you. I don't think people realize how much work it is to have a stallion (or two). Even when they are well behaved and respect you, other horses and the fence you still have to be mindful of checking fences daily and keeping them exercised and mentally stimulated, but not too much so. I work with my stud every day. Sometimes we just go for walks down the lane, sometimes we ride out. I change it up every day, but I commit at least 30 minutes every day to taking him out of his paddock and going out exploring. He prefers to be within close proximity to other horses, so I keep him close to a group of horses, but not too close. I am very diligent about testing his fence every day. In summer when the majority of the other horses are at pasture he gets more freedom to interact with the boys. He gets along very well with the geldings. Some stallions can't be near other horses and some have to be. Ben is pretty easy going about everything and doesn't really care where he is or who is around. I count my blessings every day that he isn't one of those high maintenance stallions - but it's still a lot of extra time and work caring for him.
