    Depending on his behavior, usually 3-6 months IME.

    Honestly though, it might be the better decision considering his breeding. I'm not sure how much of a market there would be for a crossbred friesian, and what type of mare base you would be attracting.

    Isn't he crossed with a TB and appy?

    thanks Trish

    and they are a very popular cross actually, especially in the MN area. But again, I did not post this to get into a breeding conversation so lets stick to the topic at hand.

    I am not having him castrated yet anyway, I have come up with a solution that will have me handling him only and I want to see this "bad boy" attitude for myself and be the judge:wink:. He truly does not put a hoof out of line with me except for occasional goofy stuff that all horses will do (and young horses at that) and he quickly cuts it out when boss mare here tells him it is not acceptable.
