    I think the point is that if he has a retained testicle, then it's an abdominal surgery .. a big deal.

    Do YOU have 10's of thousands of dollars sitting around for specialized surgery?
    It's easy to be an authority on an operation someone else is funding.

    Not when it's a complicated situation like this one.

    Okay, fine.
    My concern is that OP will have 3 studs. For what reason? None.

    Did you read the thread? She plans to geld.

    And if she owned 10 studs, for no other reason than she likes studs, it's her business.

    But that is not the case, because she plans to geld.

    Texasgal has a good point. Getting him used to a lot of activity should help.
    What are your plans for him as far as discipline or activity?
    The discipline is the sad part I bought him when he was 2 and was planning on turning him into a barrel horse. At this point I want to sell him, but I refuse to sell him until He is better I don't want to take a chance of someone else who thinks they can handle him buying him and them ending up getting hurt. I had high hopes the trainer would help his problem , but from the sound of everything I have found out it's just going to take time and exposure. To be honest he has been a problem child since day 1 When I got him he had been thrown in a pasture with no handling he had severe sunburn in his nose so you couldn't get near his head without him freaking out and he was under weight. We have over come a lot of problems with him since then ( I knew he would be a project when I bought him, my trainer let me know he could help fix him) so we have over come a kicking problem, trust problem, and a few other problems including trying to paw the farrier to the ground. I have gotten all that fixed and now the only problem we have is the wanting to run with other horses.

    I know the question wasn't directed to me, however....
    I do not have tens of thousands laying around for complicated surgeries, at that point I would choose to euth my horse.

    However, if someone owns several studs, they should have the money to geld. And as they own a few of them, the chances of having at least one horse with a retained testicle is increased. It's not that rare of an issue.

    I can afford to have the other two cut. Its only 200.00 per. I have only had the 2 year old a week or two that is the only reason he is still intact. I did not chose to end up with him he was a repo because the people weren't taking care of him (all except for 2 of my horses have been rescue cases) The colt, has to drop before he can be gelded. The vet Around here I would not trust to cut a horse with the issue of only having one testicle.

    I did not create this thread to be offended or to have to prove myself to anyone I created it to get an answer for a question I had. Thank you to those of you who answered my question. I greatly appreciate your help.

    It's really none of anyone's business what you do with your horses or how many studs you have. Don't feel the need to justify yourself.
    Your question was about this particular horse. There are just some people that have to jump on the 'geld' bandwagon every time they see a thread that says "stud".
