Thats what I question. Just because he doesn't have testicles, just means he may by chryptorchid and just not like a normal active stud.
To test a true Hermi, parts of the inner female parts need to be tested to see if they are ovarian material or male testes.
Have worked at vets for over 35 years, and I can truly say I have seen one true Hermie, it was a dog with male sheath, not real normal, but overies and uterous inside. We started to neuter, then ended up spaying instead.
I believe this is just another scammer trying to make money. Would be fun to actually email and ask for veterinarian confirmation on the hermi diagnosis..

I have an inbred Siamese cat that's a herm. He has balls, I think a ding dong, and a vag and uterous. We had him neutered, and the vet at the time was a family friend, and was suprised they found a uterous as well.

I work as an LVT in an emergency animal hospital. I have seen people pay extra for all sorts of ridiculous things so their pet will be special. The people who do it generally aren't terribly bright or experienced enough to know how ridiculous they look. They also don't usually have the animal's health foremost in their minds.

Personally you couldn't get me to take on such a horse if I could avoid it. There are other horses that need homes that won't be such a potential medical mess!
