Something very sad happened today...

I got my colt gelded! He is officially: A GELDING!


And somewhere, out there, there's a Krazy Kolor Breeder with The Mare From Outspace screaming: NOOOOOOO!!!11!!1 11



I'm just so happy. It went VERY well. The vet was extremely informative He went right to work on his grain come supper time too.

My little no-namer, he's an 18 month old Missouri Fox Trotter x Tennessee Walking Horse colt. It was a choice between him and a true black MFT a few months older, he has nothing but a star. Also, excellent temperament and conformation, I just liked this little guy better.






I really like his dam, she's a black and white Tobiano TWH. I'm just wary as she got (very much accidentally) pregnant as a yearling and had my little squeaker at two years old. She's just so lovely though.
Buut, I have plenty to work with at the moment. I might look into another Foxtrotter or Tennessee Walker once everyones trained. I've wanted a black and white Tobiano foal since I was a kid, might just get one next year or the year after that

Congrats on your pretty little gelding! Keep your fingers crossed for me that plans don't fall through AGAIN, and Finn will be getting done on Wednesday!

Oh boy, it's probably going to take a lot more to knock out your guy than it did mine!

It was kind of interesting to watch, he got all wobbly and stoned looking, just kinda stood there for a few moments (big ol' mouthful of grass to boot) then went down nice and easy He looked REALLY out of it for a while after he woke up too!

The BO called me today (he's boarded out of town at the moment) and said he's doing great. No swelling, eating like a pig, moving around nice. You'd think he's still a stud! XD

The procedure itself was pretty interesting. The vet rolled him onto his back (one leg tied up) and I got to hold him there. Very quick and simple, dogs sure where happy with their 'treats'.

LOL I would imagine Finn will take a good bit of sedation, he's a big boy these days (pushing 15.3 hh) but he's also the most easy going, laid back kiddo, so he does have that on his side.

I've always had horses gelded on the farm, but this Wednesday I'll be taking Finn down to the clinic. Not sure if that isn't a really bad idea, but the doc was keen on it, so we'll see how it goes.

A few of the geldings I've assisted with were laid over, but they were all done outside and not tied. I've also seen the vet do a few standing with some of the calmer colts we had out at the farm. I think Finn would be calm enough to do a standing castration if we were doing it at home, but going to the vets he'll probably have to go all the way out.

So glad you boy is taking it so easy and speedy healing vibes headed your way!
