Here, we list 12 quirky stallion-care myths-plus two truths. Test your knowledge, then see how you did-and to learn the important facts behind each statement.

1. You need to clean your stallion's sheath more often than you would a gelding's.

2. For the best odds of getting a healthy mare pregnant by a healthy stallion, pasture-breed her.

3. As a rule, stallions are taller than geldings.

4. Stallions need a higher-protein diet than geldings or mares to maintain good condition.

5. You need to clean your stallion's stall more frequently than you would a mare's or a gelding's.

6. The best way to keep your stallion's genitals from becoming infected is to wash him after each breeding.

7. During a busy breeding season, it's best to let your stallion rest, rather than make him exercise.

8. Stallions kept together in the same pasture will fight.

9. A fever can adversely affect your stallion's sperm count.

10. You shouldn't vaccinate your stallion during breeding season--the vaccine may adversely affect his sperm.

11. Stallions are more susceptible to parasites than mares and geldings are.

12. It takes 7 days to build a sperm cell.

13. It's not normal for your stallion to masturbate, so you should take steps to stop him if he does--it'll affect his sperm count.

14. A stallion's testicles descend into his scrotum around the time he reaches puberty.
