Trailering After Gelding

I've sold most of my horses, and one of the two I'm keeping is a stallion. I'm moving and the place they'll be boarded at does not allow stallions. I'm absolutely willing to geld him in order to keep him because he won't have any mares to cover and it will perhaps make things easier when showing him and everyone in minis pretty much has their own stallion so the possible income is basically zero.

However the place I'm moving to is about 1,000 miles away and I will be moving sometime within the next month but something that's just come to a realization for me is that I have no idea the recovery time he'll need to make that trip. Does anyone have any idea on this? I thought I'd check here first before hassling vets.

I assume your vet will be gelding him so why not ask prior to surgery the recovery time? To me a month recovery without complications would be fine if you can get it done that soon. Talk to your vet.

I hauled one of my colts to the vets for gelding, and hauled him home when he woke up. It was over an hour drive but we didnt have any complications.

Check with your vet but I can't imagine 7-10 days of recovery, then hauling him, being any sort of problem.

Talk to the vet.

My horse's buddy was just gelded (7 month old colt) and was trailered back home the day after the surgery.
