    Thumbs down Argh! Finn's gelding is on hold.

    Well, the vet came out today, for Freyja and Fiona's one month post-partum check, and get Finn gelded today. Freyja and the baby are fine, but we are having to wait on Finn getting gelded, because one testicle still has not descended yet. REALLY annoying. The vet had a good feel around and said unless I want him to try to go in and get it, we really need to wait for the other testicle to get more within reach.

    I am frustrated because I really wanted to have this done and over with, Finn's a yearling now, but the vet said at this point the best option is to just give him a little more time. It's weird because this is the same vet who was kind of getting after me because I hadn't scheduled Finn's gelding when he was like, 7 months! Finn hasn't shown any signs of maturity or interest in the mares, though I have been separating him into my side yard when Freyja had her foal heat, and Misty is due to come in heat next week so I'll put him up then too. It's not a big deal to keep him away from the girls for now, I guess, I just wanted to get the job done. Bleh.

    So for now I'll just keep checking Finn until he's complete, and reschedule the surgery for then, but if he hasn't fully dropped by the fall I'll just have the vet go in after it. I guess this is just more a rant than anything else.

    Not to make this any worse than it already is for you but, my Appy Cosmo has been put on hold twice now.

    One is still eluding us, and he's around 2 years old (not entirely positive on his age, but there abouts).

    We're trying again in two weeks, last time he checked him was when he was out for Floyd, and he said it was "there" but still very high, and might be difficult to get to. I'm hoping it dropped a little more, but i'm not holding out too much hope because we've been checking him all the time since we got him in December and it hasn't changed much.

    I feel your pain

    Good luck with it, those silly boys!
