So I bought my 2 yo mini donkey and was told he was gelded. I've had him since Dec and all is well.
Well today I was grooming him and it seemed that he had a "sack" buy no testies. I felt around and it was just a deflated sack and I thought I felt two hard grape like lumps which I thought were scar tissue. I'm assuming if he wasn't gelded the lumps would be a lot bigger then grapes? He didn't care I was playing with his man parts but now I'm a bit worried as he is pastured with a mare and a few geldings. He never acts studdish but he will mount my gelding frequently. He never touches the mare or other geldings. (He's obsessed with my gelding)
I messaged the lady I bought him from and she said that's how they geld donkeys. They cut open the sack take out the testies and stitch em back up. I'm not sure how much of that I believe, though. Although I know they do it to dogs as my last dog had the same thing but he was neutered.
Any input?? Why would they leave the sack where as all gelding horses that I've seen never have just a deflated sack left behind.
