    D. Gelding

    A gelding is a castrated male horse. Castration is the surgical removal of the testicles, which results in the horse being unable to reproduce. Geldings are often preferred for riding and work purposes because they tend to have a more even temperament compared to stallions, which are intact (non-castrated) males. Mare refers to a female horse, while stud and stallion both refer to intact male horses. Therefore, the correct answer is gelding.

    Explanation
    Toil means to work or strive long and laboriously. It implies putting in a great amount of effort and hard work in order to achieve a goal.
