Gelding Options / Low Cost Clinics

I wanted to ask if anyone knew of any affordable clinics for gelding. I know the unwanted horse coalition started some funding and several clinics were held in KY and CA but nothing in NY/NJ/PA that I know of.

Also if anyone has been to a low cost clinic - how was it?
I have two colts that need to be snipped and want to do so affordably as possible but will do whatever necessary if there's nothing low cost near me.

Thanks!

Here is what the Minnesota Horse Council and the University of Minnesota teamed up to do:

The Gelding Project: Helping the unwanted horse one stallion at a time

The castration clinics have been wonderfully successful.

We provide the education opportunities at the Minnesota Horse expo for the attendees to earn the credit for the vouchers.

Have you checked around local ad sites? My state has a kind of online classified website and a few months ago, they advertised for a free gelding clinic. It was like 2 days in the capitol and anyone with an ungelded colt or stud could come and get him gelded for free.

Just go over to 'www.Geldmystudmyself.com'

You can download step by step instructions and a five minute anatomy lesson. They sell pen knives, too.

Hate to say it, but I don't find that price high. I have a shepherd to have neutered, and it's going to cost me $400 for him, and that's a dog surgery...so it stands to reason a castration on a horse would cost that much.

SERIOUSLY?!

Man, you have got to be kidding!

I payed $60 to have my colt snipped, plus another $20 for the farm call and shots!

You COULD try the Amish/Mennonites. I don't think they sedate them though.

Twogeldings, can I steal your vet? Please? I have a mare, but mine charges $120 for a farm call. It cost me over $200 to have her leg looked at because she scraped it up and got kicked during the same time period, so it was all scabbed up and swollen at the same time. Sucked She was limping nicely, but wouldn't let me touch it because she's a huge mare like that. I called the vet so she could be sedated and it looked at. She tried kicking the vet under tranquilizer too..

Wow! My dogs were $80-100 I think. But I think they got a couple shots at the same time. It was a while ago.

I'm not sure if this was once a real website, but it no longer exists.
