    Now Im Worried

    Today my yearling colt got gelded, and had 2 wolf teeth pulled. First within 10 minutes of being done, he jumps up on his feet. We put him in another stall because it's closer than his and he's not very stable. He never laid down, at all. Then later I notice he's being pretty perky and normal. I go to switch him and the filly whose stall he was in, she was in his. He tried to run me over when I opened the door(not a normal thing), so I stuck him out in the arena. He ran and bucked for about 10 minutes and never did stop moving. He is a pain in the! %$ anyway, not from lack of dicilpline. He's just that way. I am just amazed, every horse I've seen after being cut has looked miserable and groaning. This colt doesn't even act phased.

    Maybe the pain killers haven't wore off?

    He doesn't realize he's had his bags unpacked yet.

    Not sure this was probably 4 and a half hours later. He's wide awake anyway.

    I would think after that, even walking would be painful. The 2 stud colts I had got and had gelded before laid in their stall without moving groaning at times until that evening, they were 3 though. I figured he would be more miserable feeling.

    I have no doubt he was awake.
    He just doesn't realize something is missing yet.
    Testosterone can take up to 30 days to work out of the system. Even if maturity-wise he wasn't stud minded in the least, adrenaline can cover a lot.
    More than likely if he wasn't bucking from the pain, it will certainly hit him in the morning from bucking.

    Or perhaps, he just has a higher pain tolerance.

    Its good for the boy to get moving after being gelded helps in healing process. Also so does good cold hosing. When we have our colts gelded we go right back to longing and with the harness racers we were jogging them later in the day or very next day. Once we are done jogging them or longing them we cold hose the area. We find this helps heal them faster. Any good vet will tell you moving them is good.

    I know. Usually they get to rest that day. She told me to exercise him everyday. My last colt I was told to ride the next day as he was broke. I've just never seen one so active the day they get cut.
