Purchase price depends on the colt. Gelding, would depend upon your vet's charge. Around here that's about $300 for an uncomplicated surgery. I imagine that can run from $200 to over $1000 depending on possible complications.
You're going to have to just call around to different Vet's offices in your area. The price will vary greatly depending upon where you live. Don't forget if you're semi-rural that a rural vet + a trip charge can cost less, however..that means emergency complications may need to be dealt with by a local. Food for thought.
I think I paid like 260ish? I can't remember for sure, he had one testicle that sucked back up and my vet had to dig for it and then I had a call back or 2 because it was so swelled and sore....... :(
It made me sick to my stomache to watch. Not because it was gross or freaked me out, just the thought of ripping that babies dudads out. I had no plans to breed him and they needed to go but I have to say, it was hard to watch. I can watch them stitch them, so them, cut the dead flesh off, dig through nasty gashes but to watch that poor baby loose his manlyhood... it's hard. It needs to be done but it's hard to watch....
Uuumm ok then.......I LOVE MY VET!!!!..... to have a stud gelded on our farm would cost $40 for the call and less then $25 fo suply's for the gelding and depending on what's for dinner...he'll stay and eat
