So I am having some concerns. I have owned my yearling since he was 7 months old, he is now 17 months old. Withing that first month, he was what should have been gelded. Everything went well, he was a bit sore then all good. I have recently over the last month started to wonder if there is a chance he might either not been done properly (it was a young vet who did the procedure).
I have been observing him and when working with him, I have found his temper to be very studdly. I also find his neck development to be quite thick. I questioned my trainer what she thought of it and my worry and she agreed. Time passed and I didn't get worried. The farrier came yesterday and questioned me when he saw him and asked me when I was going to geld him Minutes later a new border asked me what my stud's breeding was
Now I can't recall what I saw being removed when he should have been gelded and I am aware that it takes some time for a horse to adjust, but what about an 8 month old foal?? Do they really need time to adjust to nothing? Because he wasn't developped at all at that age where as now I find he is a lot more muscular for his age than other horses of his breed. Out in pasture he does not do anything with the mares. He is the best mannered horse out there. He doesn't mount, he doesnt sniff tho as I said his temper when handled resembles a lot that of a stud. He does also like his poop piles (which I have also seen geldings like).
Could it be possible that something might have been left behind? Right now assuming that he was indeed gelded, is it possible he simply producing more hormone than usual which causes that development?
