I didn't get to be there when my gelding got gelded. I had to work, so my best friend sent me tons of pics from her phone. Poor baby. The vet said he took the least amount of sedative to become the most droopy of any horse his size the vet had ever seen (he was 15.1hh and about 1100-1200lbs).
Living in cowboy country, where superstition regarding livestock is a matter of course, the vet threw Aires' testicles onto the top of his stall after he finished to "ward off infection and bad luck" (don't worry, he gave us antibiotics, too
). Oddly enough, he healed quickly and cleanly with no issues and not even a hint of infection. Posted via Mobile Device
