Cost of gelding?

I'm curious to know what the price of gelding is? I'm looking at some foals, and if I choose a male he would come to me as a stud colt. I know everything varies with the area I'm in, but what's the average? My vet is with Newmarket Equine, and I've used Woodside Equine before. If anyone in my area knows. (Between Richmond and DC in Virginia)

Thank you!

It's usually anywhere between 100 and 250. More if there's a retained testicle.

Why not call a vet in your area and find out for sure? Around here, it runs about $130 including the sedation, pennicilin, etc., but the vets in your area are notoriously high by Midwestern standards, so it would likely be substantially more. One of my sons was a vet tech years ago about 20 miles north of you and was surprised at the price differences between there and the Midwest. Of course that was a little closer to DC than you...

My vet is coming out to do teeth soon, I'll ask her then! I know to ask her, but I'm not looking on getting a foal until this time next year.

I just got a quote from the local equine clinic last week for our guy. A basic castration if both testicles have dropped was $400 for a yearling. That is based on me taking him to them.

Around here it's $400 - $500 for gelding (northern nj) but some vets will go as low as $250. Finding a vet to do it for $100 - $200 sounds amazing, but highly unlikely to impossible for my area.

I'd ask your Vet.

I know my Vet would be way more than $100, just him setting foot on the property is nearly $50.
