So I called the vet three seperate times today and once yesterday to set up the appointment to geld my beloved Poco.... I've still yet to set the **** thing. I get the courage to make the call. I have the cash in hand to do it. But as soon as it hits the point of actually setting the date and time I get all nervous and ask a few more questions then say I'll call them back.
I have no idea what my fear is. I've spoken with the vet who will be doing the gelding and he has vast experience with gelding older stallions (Poco is 9 now) and has no fear about that. I am completely aware he'll still be my big baby and lover boy afterwards since he doesn't act at all like a stallion now.
I could just use some moral support here you guys. It's tough having a stud for the past 7 years and then making this decision but I know it's in his best interest both physically and mentally. I want my son to be able to start showing him in the next year or two and kids simply can't show stallions.
