A lot of places have started doing clinics for gelding. Like last fall, for one weekend in the state capital, they had free geldings for anyone who needed one. You just hauled it in and bam. Free. I want to say the University of Minnesota set up a program for getting free or reduced price geldings for people. I can't remember the name.

I agree. It is scary to me that one would think that is a large price for what is actually a surgical procedure.

agreed....however that not only doesn't stop one from owning A horse, it doesn't stop MANY from owning MANY horses. And breeding them. *sigh*

Honestly I find that very reasonable, it cost me $90 just to get my cat neutered

Another vote for a bargain here, and certainly an investment in a happier horse.

$135? That's what I pay to have my horses' teeth floated every 10 months. And it's $100-$120 every 6-8 weeks to have them shod. And just below $100 every six months for vaccinations (actual cost varies on that one)....

Gelding a stallion is a little more involved that banding a bull.

Holy crap!! That's high!! It was $75 when I got Rafe done last summer and when we got John done the year before (I think, maybe it was 2) it was about $90 with the same vet. His cost does vary a bit because he charges a flat rate for the actual procedure and the drugs and shots are all figured individually. Since John was twice the size of a normal horse, he cost more.

Sometimes, when people get their first horse, they don't realize or know the "hidden" costs. They know how much they have to pay to buy the horse and how much to board, but not the vet bills, the farrier, for floating, vaccinations, etc.

The cheapest part of owning a horse is the purchase price!

Id loved to have only paid $100-$200. We paid $700 (cryptorchid) and they couldn't even find his testicles.

I agree that it was cheap! I just spent $250 neutering my puppy.
