I agree, There is no way in the day and age for a horse to be "proud cut" No competent vet would leave a portion of the testicle, If you have even seen the procedure done you would see that the testicles themselves are not cut and if they were you could clearly see that there was a missing portion of testicle. I could understand a rescue horse being a cryptorchid and being passed around from home to home and no one knowing, but I find it absurd for a vet to say that a horse is proud cut. I would do find a new vet and discuss this horse with them. Have them draw a testosterone level which would indicate the horse is actually a cryptorchid(and there for still a stud)
