I don't nock my colts out cold but I always have a light sedation done for them(basically the way we sedate for teeth floating). I wouldn't want to cut the poor colts bits off without something. It makwa it at least a little less traumatic.
I have had my colts done in the middle of the winter on a cold day. I actually like gelding them in the winter vs the summer. It might be a little chilly(I am in Canada) but it seems to go a lot smoother and less swelling.
