I used to have horses, too. Isn't it true that the later a horse is gelded can have a lot to do w/ his temperment? He remebers being a stallion and retains some of his stallion qualities. I haven't studied horses for several years, but I seem to remember that info.
I've also heard of cats that are neutered later in life still behaving like tom cats.

Thats very true. Health conditions can make for studdish behavior too. My friend had a mare that had a tumor on her ovary and if you didn't look under her belly you would have sworn she was a stud!!! We had a gelding with a thyroid issue and once his levels we fixed he quit being studly.

Now that you mention that story, I remember a similar story with a mare at teh stable. I don't remember about a tumor (I was just a child) but I remember there being a mare with very bizarre studdish behavior, I wonder if she had the same thing as the horse you mention. So funny.

I'm not talking about vasectomies. I'm talking eunuchs and castrati. There are human men on this planet (even in this country) who have have been castrated.

Many eunuchs also report being in complete control of their sexuality. If I did want to get an erection I could, but it would take more effort. I don't have erections only because I don't want them.

Eunuchs who do remain sexually active usually have sex much less often, but report that when they do it is more special, and some of their spouses feel the same way. Because the eunuch does not arouse so quickly, he can take more time on the foreplay and afterglow.

Nope, all mammals have foreskins. You could circumcise them... there is a case of a bull being circumcised in the veterinary literature... but why would you want to? Humans are the only group dumb enough to do this to their babies.

This is an argument that I occasionally use.  A while ago I went to our family doctor for a suspected hernia. It turned out that a locum was filling in.  During the course of the appointment, I took the opportunity to express my huge disappointment at having been circumcised.  She seemed a bit surprised and went on to explain how they try to give balanced information to parents in order for them to make their own decision.  I said that there are no positives to circumcision and that it should be a decision for the owner of the penis , adding that "If you circumcised your dog, you would likely end up in jail!".  She thought for a moment, then said "Yes, you probably would".  I hope I planted a seed.
