Gelding Information?

I was having a discussion earlier about gelding horses. Someone got bent out of wack about a wild mustang in a holding pen get gelded and having swelling without getting any more pain meds than the shot while having it done.


My gelding was already gelded and healed by the time I got him. So, I have no experience in this. Is it normal to just receive that first pain shot and light exercise to assist in drainage?

I am just curious as I was called callous, unfeeling, and ect. For believing that it would be hard to medicate a wild mustang just after gelding. That a normal amount of swelling was to be expected and could be managed without drugging the horse.

Any insight?

Typically, you don't give much pain relief to any domesticated horse post castration either. The only time I bute them is if they are just not moving at all and the swelling is out of control and that would be the second day.

Sounds like the mustang was managed appropriately.
