I have a 9 year old pony that is gelding. He is in a pasture with other geldings and mares. One of our mares came into heat the other day and he is acting like a stud and fully breeding to her. Is this normal behavior for even geldings?? Is there a chance he is still a stud and wasn't fully gelded??

I don't know if it is very normal but I don't thinks not uncommon. I have a 10 year old gelding and does the same thing and nothing has happened yet. There is a chance that he was proud cut but probably he is just feeling that spring is in the air.

April -I once had a pony gelding that did the same thing...every 3 weeks the mares showed to them and he serviced them, start to finish (teasing to ejaculation), nothing resulted except happy mares :-). he had a rim testicle i believe it was called (one did not drop from he abdomen so they gelded the one and sold him as a gelding). but a friend of mine has a gelding, never took an interest i any mare, except my "little" arab mare, he loved her, litereally love at first site, he bred her regularily, but never anyone else, bofore her or after her! they had quite a bond, to this day a year and a half after he lived here if he comes to visit they are crazy, cannot stand being away from each other...its wierd!
it could be that type of thing with your gelding too...

I have a shetland gelding, 9hh, 6yo. Ive had him since he was a year old and hes never acted like a colt/stallion when mares are in heat.

But in the last year or so Ive owned a stallion who I have sometimes run with the shetty gelding, or when Ive bred the stallion to a mare the little shetty wasnt to far away and usually watching and now I find if I put the shetland in a new paddock with some old friends he runs around and puffs himself up like a stallion, goes to sniff the mares.

Hes really good friends with a filly I have and when shes in heat, she is squirting winking and everything, and one day I saw the gelding actually mount her trying to serve, but his little ding dong was all floppy and he could only just get his head on her rump.

I dont know if he learnt this from watching the stallion or the stallion told him some stories when they are running together but yeah he hasnt been a problem and it saved me from buying a teaser now as he is the teaser.

Its odd, before I owned the stallion he just acted like a normal gelding but since Ive had the stallion, it wasnt straight away but a month after a couple of breedings he started displaying stallion bahavior and sometimes acts aggressive towards the stallion if theres a mare present but the stud isnt aggressive towards him, hes very gentle.
