my horses testicles have disappeared

I have a 2 year old colt that just a few days ago his testicles were descended but today they are gone, I can't even feel them. Has anybody ever heard of this?

He's just sucked them back up into his body. Stallions of all ages can do this.

I doubt seriously if he self gelded. Horses won't willingly do that.....

*lol* They'll be back. Probably later today or tomorrow. He just got cold. Or shy that you were looking for them. It's normal!

Yeah, most of them don't like it when you grope for their 'nads. Keep your hands off!

OMG, seriously, soooo off topic but do you remember the "nads" infomercials for the hair removal stuff? I used to be in tears laughing so hard at those ads, they never failed to crack me up...."You can even EAT nads!"

I don't remember those commercials, but if I ever heard someone say you could eat NADS, I'd be rolling on the floor!

Some people do eat 'nads, actually. Sheep, goat, and bull 'nads. Rocky Mountain Oysters are just fried bull or sheep testicles. I dunno if I'd want to eat 'em, but some folks seem to enjoy them.

Oh dear. I can't find the old ad where they say you can eat them, but I assure you it did exist.

However I did find this one amusing:

Well I should hope they come back! Lmao! True, he probably just got a chill, however my aunt owns a "gelding" whom they purchased in ontario purely for a breeding stallion (owners were selling him as a stud colt). He was a grand-son of Shining Spark. They paid $8000 for this guy as a 2-year-old, got him home & discovered he had no nads.
Well they figured that maybe they just hadn' dropped yet, so they got the vet out & as it happens he's got cryptorchidism! (which means he's still got his junk, they just wont drop & so he cannot breed) & it's a $4000 surgery to get him actually gelded.
They werent too

Well, if I'm ever in the market for a breeding stallion (as likely as me becoming a supermodel), I'm going to want to see the hardware before I get out the checkbook!

Ya no kidding It was kindof a big hulla-buloo story... they werent even in ontario when they bought him. Another breeder/friend was, but she couldn't afford him so she called my aunt's husband & told him about him & he bought him over the phone at the auction.
The sad thing is that (because of his condition I believe) he's only about 13.3 hh. Muscular though (he's 5 now), & gorgeous palomino. Great riding horse too. Pulls all the reining horse moves naturally
