When Should My Colt be Gelded?

My colt is being weaned right now (he's a little over 3 months old). He will be back in with his mom in 2-3 weeks and I need to know when to get him gelded (I don't want mommy to get pregnant again so I don't want to wait too long.) How long can I wait? Thanks!

If both testicles have dropped, you could probably have him done by the time he's 6 months. At that age, he isn't old enough to breed yet but most normal horses would have dropped both by then.

I agree. Wait till they are decended and have him cut and wait a little bit to put them together again.

Although most horses don't become sexually mature until around 18 months, there are cases of stallions breeding as young as a year. Combined with additional changes in development and attitude when kept intact, it's best to have them gelded as soon as possible with 6 months typically being the youngest a horse is gelded.
