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.
