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.

It depends a great deal on where you live the guy I use to geld colts charges me $40. The vets here get $100 to $120 plus their $35 to $50 farm call.

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.

It does not matter what it costs, it should be done. Just like regular farrier care and routine dental work. But gelding should be a requirement for almost all intact male horses.

I just had one gelded last week but I don't know what he charged. It should be @140.00 but I'll let you know when I get the bill. And of coarse every state and vet office is different.

As someone else stated it should be done. If testicles don't descend the cost can be quite high. Even so, only the rare colt should not be gelded.

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....
