Hi I have a 2 year old who behaves like a gelding. He runs out with a group of mares (three and their foals) he has no sexual interest in anything at all... is this normal?
I have never had any of our colts like this before... we have six stallions between us (my family) and what have you so Im worried about my baby as he wont even drop if a mare flirts with him.

Younger colts that run with mares - especially if they have done for some time - often will not be particularly "studdy" as they are intimidated and under the control of the mares.

Bear in mind too that it is winter (presuming you are in the northern hemisphere), so the mares are likely not cycling, so there is no reason for the colt to exhibit stallion-like behaviour.

Testosterone levels rise in the spring, so you may find you have a different horse on your hands then.

Thanks Jos. The girls dote on him and leave the babies with him all the time... the lead mare is a right rotten tart - a terrific first mare. No matter how much she tarts at him - he ignores her. It's possible one of the mares is scary to him though for sure.
Is it best to take him away? I don't usually run them with the girls but decided to with him as I wanted him to be well socialised.
And nope, its summer here (australia)

What do you want to do with him? Are you trying to get him to breed the mares (bearing in mind that it can have a negative influence in the long run breeding a colt too young)?

How old exactly is he? Is he a "technical 2" or an actual >24 months 2?

If you don't care if the mares are bred or not, then you can probably leave him in with them - it won't hurt unless something takes a kick at him at some point. And you can't know for sure without checking them that he hasn't already bred them - it's always possible that they are already in foal!!
