Thats sad WildSpot. :/ I hate to see this kind of thing happen.

I'm sorry to hear it :(

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

I am sorry for the loss. Its sad when a little one doesnt make it. But what I want to know is what vet did the gedling and why wasnt he called when the colt fell ill. They can geld a horse but wont do emergency calls? That part I do not understand. The minute the colt started having symptoms the vet should of been called. 17 hrs or not (awfully far to NOT have a vet for emergency calls.) JMHO

How does a vet pack up and leave before the sedation wears off?

The horse was fine for 2 days before trouble began.

This sentence makes me wonder if a vet gelded him.
"Disclaimer before I start - we are a 17 hour drive from the nearest vet with surgical facilities, and there are no vets willing to come to a horse were we are."

Unless they took the colt to the vet and then brought him back to the stable?

possibly a "self gelding" by "experts" that went wrong. Might have got a piece of bowel into the hole left by testicles and it strangled and caused septecimia.
