Mana has recently turned one and I am trying to decide when you get his brains chopped off. The problem is, he only has one of them decended and it is very small. The last time I saw the other one was when he was three months old for a few days and then it went bye bye. I would have figured that if the other one was coming back, it would have done so by now. The one that is down is about two inches long and about the diameter of a dime. I am having the vet out soon as he has managed to hurt his back leg, but I'd like to hear opinions as to what might be the issue here (if there is one.) Should I be concerned? Should I wait a couple more months to see if they straighten themselves out?
He is extremely docile and quiet. Definitely the lowest horse when he was in a bigger herd and now still second. (only because I only have two horses), but not showing any secondary male characteristics as of yet.
(And before anyone gets their panties in a bunch, yes, he is kept with his dam still as there is no where to separate them. The dam had the marble implanted earlier in the season before I sent her to a training facility the housed stallions just to be safe so don't panic. I'm not that stupid, I swear!)
