The vet honestly didn't say much! He didn't come until about 8:45 PM and seemed to be in a rush. There was an audience that wanted to watch the castration, so he catered to them/us with stories of previous geldings and all the forms death can take if something gets screwed up.
I did manage to get a question in about Strider's further growth. He surmises that Strider will be on the smaller side, (I THINK HE SAID), 8 or 900 pounds. No guestimates on height.
Strider got himself in more trouble this morning...he got his legs caught in the bars of the top of his stall and cut himself....we didn't know what he cut himself on last night. SO! The BO called this morning to let us know they have him temporarily penned on the lawn, and will be putting plywood over the bars so he can't hurt himself that way again.
I guess a little hay goes a long way!!!!! Super glad he's gelded now....they say he should calm down.
