First , how old is he? If he is 2 or older, chances are he is what is called a cryptorchid. This condition is passed on father to son and if he has daughters they will pass it on to their off spring. Most , not all, horse organizations will not recognize this and reccomend gelding.

I appologize if my info and understanding is incorrect, and yes ask your vet he / she is your best source of info.

Good luck.

He can settle mares however, it is not a desirable trait in a breeding stallion.

Can't your vet go in there and descend the second one?

They can still breed, however, like was said before its a trait that is passed on and its VERY undesirable and he wont be recognized by the majority of breed organizations because of it.

They can breed but most people don't care for them. I've never known one to pass it on any more then any other horse if a stud sires enough foals odds are good he's going to have one now and then.

It is a genetic defect if it hasn't descended fully by the time he turns 3.
While it appears that it doesn't show up in offpsring it is a female linked gene in that it is passed on through the mares.

It is a genetic defect and surgery is needed to correct this in MOST cases. It's pretty unethical in my opinion to breed a horse with this problem. Do you want all the buyers of your colts to have to get surgery on their colts? You wouldn't be a very well respected breeder if that were the case.

As I said it is a female gene and therefore is not passed on to the colts most of the time. I inadvertently bred to a crypt years ago and that colt was fine-even though he was outstanding he was gelded.
