Oh my god I don't care HOW many they've done I wouldn't let them put a single hand on either of my horses! I can't IMAGINE the pain! Anything strong enough to prevent the horse from feeling pain is NOT going to be available over the counter. And the scrotum is one of the most sensitive body areas, how can you think about letting them cut that open without anesthesia, without the proper equipment if something goes wrong? Put yourself in that situation. Would you allow them to cut open your sensitive areas with just a bit of over the counter drowser? Would you let them do it on your husband for a vasectomy? If the answer is no why would you inflict it on a horse?

I hope that once you see your horse thrashing in agony you'll second guess doing this again. Poor, poor horse.

I'm pretty sure that doing a procedure like gelding for pay and not being a licensed vet is illegal.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Wow I cannot believe you would not use a vet, remember animals cannot talk but they sure as hell feel pain. Are these people careful with sterilized surgical instruments??????? Why are you thinking this is a good idea, better yet you must realize it is not a good idea or you would not be looking for support on such a decision. Give your head a shake, this is a loving, trusting animal who I would assume you love so treat it that way.

Don't tell me they work at a breeding farm. Try looking on the internetmat how heartless some people are about castrating animals, you will want to throw up. Good luck.
