Yeah he is an idiot when it comes to anything with four legs. I argue with him all the time about stuff when it comes to animals.

Just as a general estimate, about what would it cost to have a 5 year old gelded?

Call your vet and ask. It is his crypt status that will affect the price more than his age.

I'll give him a call. He's out for the day so I'll give him a call next week.

No. Those papers shouldn't mean anything to that person no more... =/ I don't know why he would want them anymore when he doesnt have the horse to go with them

Did you ever get your questions answered?

To get his papers, you need to contact the current owner on record (meaning, who the ApHC considers his owner). They need to sign a transfer over to you (technically it would be to the person they sold him to, who would sign it over to the person they sold him to, all the way down to you... but if you can get one direct to you it will work) and give you his papers. If they lost them, not sure what the ApHC, I know with AMHA/R (I forget which it is I had lost papers for when I sold a horse...) I had to sign a form stating they were lost/destroyed and how/why. Yes, if the guy wants to charge for the papers, that is legal, and done often (as was stated, ethical is another story...).

If that doesn't pan out, once gelded, as was mentioned, he can be hardshipped.

A crypt is definitely fertile, as you're aware. But it CAN be passed on, so crypts should NOT be bred. It costs a lot more to geld a crypt as it's a much more invasive surgery. But it SHOULD be done. The retained testicle can become cancerous, among other reasons to geld.

Good luck with everything! I love Apps, would love to see photos :)

We have been trying to get hold of the man who has the papers. My FIL has been fighting with him for about a year now to get the papers from him - he was supposed to get the when he bought the horse. The guy's daughter is apparently the one that filed them so he doesn't know where they are :roll: I'm going to have my FIL call him again.

As for him being a crypt well, I reached up there yesterday evening and I felt two testicles. I was just always told he was and never really reached up to feel. I'll have to get some recent pics of him again.
