Gelding stud

How much time off would you expect an older (12 yro) stallion to need after being gelded?

I just had a 6 year old stud gelded and the vet told me to start exercising him as much as I want on the 2nd day

Depends on what you have him doing. They need to stay active to keep the swelling down and drainage flowing. Mine get a day maybe two off but they are forced to trot at least 10 min both ways two to three times those first few days. After that they go back to work.

They need to work to keep the swelling and drainage going. Don't work him hard but you should be able to walk and trot him the second day.
What did your vet say?
