Can anyone throw some insight into gelding,my colt is 18mths old and being a bit frisky with his field mate(a gelding!)I would like to have him cut but he hasnt anything at all,the vet advised to wait until his testes have dropped but still nothing!It isnt really a problem at the moment but I would like to have him cut in october time to avoid flies/infection and have it out the way ready to break him as a 3 yr old.

Re: gelding

The vet is right, it would be a whole lot more trouble to dig out the balls than to wait until they have presented themselves. You've got a few months before the fly season starts again in spring. Try not to worry at least until the end of winter. May depend on how your gelding is coping though - if he can keep the young fellow in his place there shouldn't be a problem.
