cost of gelding

i've desided to geld my 3 year old, he's not turning in to what i wanted at all, long face short neck looks like a goof ball all together ( will post pic's once my camera comes in) my vet quoted me a price of $100 plus a farm call of $20 on top of that....just wondering how much you might of paid if you got your horse gelded.

It would depend if I really wanted to. Over-all, I wouldn't go spending a great deal of money, just what I think would be right. I really think it really is worth it, because I love riding gelding, although their males (no offense) they're great to ride! I'd choose a gelding over a stally any day!

I'd say depends on area, but for my area $100 would be very cheap. I know the normal price around couple years back was $200 (and btw the farm call NOW costs over $60).

Gelding horses costs a little over 200 dollars here on top of a 80 dollar house call.

I would say geld him ASAP. the longer you wait the more pain, swelling and recovery time he will have to endure.
