Questions about gelding a colt
I don't own said colt, I only own mares actually. That's why I'm asking. What is a good age to geld? Colt is very quiet and laid back, almost too much actually. Also, the owner is worried that if she gelds him, he wont grow as much as if she waits. He's a year and a half now and still pretty small. The only bummer part is that she's eventually going to geld him (she's thinking about 2-2 1/2?) But for now he can't go out to pasture with any other horses his age :/ The other young horses are mares.
So, what age is good, and will it affect his growth at all? Thanks for the responses in advance :)
