Banjo is a gelding!
Well, my big boy Banjo was gelded today. I'm relieved that it's finally over, as I was having panic attacks over it!! He behaved beautifully for the vet- didn't even flinch for the injections and required no extra anesthetic or anything. We rasped his hind feet while he was down and put some copper-care on them, so I can relax a bit about that, too. I had been putting off getting a farrier until he was gelded because he was being pushy and naughty, but the vet said he was very well behaved and he was impressed! He also looked at his little brother- said their weights both looked good and I feel a lot better now. But he felt that the lump on Banjo's face was probably there to stay:( Likely an old injury that seems to be calcified, so it probably won't go away. Oh well, I can live with it- he's still beautiful and a good boy!
