    I agree, scar tissue. When was he supposed to have been gelded?

    I third the scar tissue. Testicles will be obviously round, like "plums" or "peaches" in size, and you'll be able to see a distinct shape of both of them.

    Ok, yeah I think I have to agree too, I saw a stallion today and he aint nothing like him.
    Whipple: I don't know when he was gelded, he is a rescue horse and is about 20 yrs.old
    I will let ya'll know what the vet says.

    Well I have to bring this subject up again.Sonny the old horse I havethat I thought was a gelding is not, he is a stallion.I had a vet assistant out here today to take a look and she said he is a stallion, she thinks because he was so under weight that we never saw it, said she has came across this before, so now that a I have mare he has been following her around everywhere, I noticed today after she went poop he went up to it and smelled it,pawed the ground and pee'd a little on it, then walked slowly away.I don't know nothing about breeding or when the mare goes into heat, Anybody have any suggestions whats going on?

    I have a hard time believing that he is a stallion, I had a colt that even had a retained testicle, and it was definitely visible. Even being somewhat thinner, the testicles would still be prominant. I have seen many stallions of all sizes, weights, and ages, and its always quite obvious that they were still intact. Its pretty obvious when mares start to come into heat, they start squirting at other horses, some mares will get white crusties around their vulva, and sometimes even down their legs and in their tail.

    I would get him separated from the mare ASAP. I think that looks like scar tissue to, but im not a vet.

    I will get more pics of him, it is clearly noticable now, not like the other pics I posted.I will also have my vet check him when he is here.
