Commander has had a personality change for the better almost immediately after being gelded. I’ve been on him once on the lunge line, just walking & trotting. That didn’t seem to bother him in the least. I’ve mostly been working with him on the ground & lunging. He’s still pretty swollen though he doesn’t seem to be in any discomfort. He & my other horse will go to stay with a friend who raises Fox trotters, while I am gone. They will be the tall guys there.
