Question One Balled Boy?

I recently brought home a horse a horse of mine that I was riding at another barn. I purchased him in the winter and have been riding him in western cutting. He's awesome. We call him "Doc" short for Hickory's Doc Parker. So we brought him to our barn where our mares are and we put him in a seperate pasture than the others to start out with and within like a half an hour, the mares had their bottoms up against his fence and were in serious heat. Doc was all excited and prancing along the fence. Don't worry the mares have settled down and are no longer in heat. Now recently when we trail rode along a quiet dirt road near the barn, we rode past a pasture where two geldings live and Doc got all puffed up and started whinnying and screaming and was practically struting past the pasture. That made the two pastured geldings get all wound up and they were just galloping around and rearing and all that junk. To sum up, Doc thinks he's a stud. All the other horses think he's a stud. So now we think he may be a chrypdorchid(spelling??) which is a boy horse with 1 undecended testicle. What is the possibillity of this and if he is, then is he fertile? Anyone know anything about this stuff?

It is entirely possible that he is a crypt. Though he also may have been proud cut, or he could just be a studdy acting horse. One thing you might consider is having the vet test his testosterone levels. If they are elevated then that might be causing the behavior. From what I understand, crypts are generally infertile, it has something to do with the temperature of the body being too high for viable sperm. He could also have just been cut late (after 3 or 4 years old) and simply retained some of his mannerisms from before. I have a mustang gelding that was gelded at 3 years old. I know he isn't a crypt or proud cut but if I put him in a pen beside a strange horse, he will arch his neck, flag his tail, and squeal like a stud. He is perfectly behaved under saddle but loose in the pasture, he acts like the big balled boss man.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Same with Doc! He is a dream to ride. A little girl named Lily can ride him around. But in the pasture, he acts like a "big balled stud." I have pics




Him acting like a stud in front of new horses




Little girl riding him around calm as can be

Lol you're not the first to have technical problems and probably not the last! :)

Now, I don't know much about this... But like smrobs said you should have his testosterone levels tested. In dogs, you can purchase shots to give them that lower test. Levels, maybe you can with horses?

I think the vet can do that. I was mostly curious about the fertility thing because asuming he was a gelding, we put him with one of our friendly younger mares and once someone mentioned him possibly having one testicle left we cringed and wondered what would would come of this. But even if he was fertile, we don't think he's even tall enough to mate with her because the mare is about twice as tall as him lol
Thanks
