The Geldings at DD Mini Farm are part of the family. We love them all dearly. Not all male horses need to be stallions, and many great stallions become great geldings.
Are you wondering what gelding means?
A gelding is a castrated male horse or other equine, such as a pony, donkey, or mule. Castration, as well as the elimination of hormonally driven behavior associated with a stallion, allows a male equine to be calmer and better-behaved, making the animal quieter, gentler, and generally more suitable as an everyday working animal.

Tune is a great horse. He has developed moon blindness and lost his eyesight, but he still gets around great and acts as if nothing has happened. We have ended up gelding Tune, so he is no longer available for Stud Service.

Buck is my first DDMini Farm home-bred horse. I even gelded him to keep him permanently on the farm. I took him to horse shows as a yearling. This photo needs to be updated, and I will at some point. lol If I find the perfect family for Buck, I may consider letting him go. He is very special to me.
