    I have worked with and owned a lot of youngsters and ALL of them were gelded around 4 months old as long as they were healthy. Its the same as neutering a 6 month old dog. No big deal and alot less traumatic on the animal. And why on earth would a 3-6 month old colt still be drinking milk?? By then, most babies are eating hay and grain quite happily and ready to be weaned.

    When people are TRULY having a difficult time about gelding, I remind them of over-population, horse auctions, and slaughter. Controlled breeding is key, and unless you are breeding for a true purpose, why take the chance? There is no guarantee that you will have the stallion until it passes, and certainly no guarantee another owner won't breed him and continue over populating.

    It's blunt but generally gets a point across.

    I don't think the discussion should be closed. Everyone has been quite civil.

    Sorry, but I don`t think that we will come to a point where we all will agree.
    It seems to be better to me not to write anything more concerning this topic (not for blaming you but this will end in an argument which is not necessary...)
    Hey, it's not a problem. You have your opinion and I have mine. You are free to do what you want with your horses.

    ImaFlashyBit asked for advise and I gave it. You gave yours. She can take all info given and do what she thinks is best with hers.

    That's what makes the world go round.
