FYI and for what its worth, I bought a little "gelding" a a yearling and was assured he was gelded. Turns out, someone only cut one testicle to be able to run him through a horse sale as a gelding but the second had not decended yet. I had him a good while and also checked him several times to be sure at first. All was fine till much later, here drops a testicle much to my dismay. Upon searching, we found a jagged scar on the side missing a testicle from an obvious home castration for that one.
Had the vet out to regeld and make sure the side with the scar was "clear"...It indeed was. Someone had only partially gelded him as a very young horse when he must have had just one dropped ....and when he was finally about to be mature, the other dropped properly just as it should have as a 3 yo.
Id get a vet to look him over well and hut for a gelding scar on the missing side. Mine cost me the same as a normal castration since he was not actually a crypt but just a victim of a dishonest seller.
