HELP! Miniature Stallion! Please Read!

Soo I just purchased a 31''in bay, registered miniature stallion. The lady DID sell him as a Stud and has proof he was a stud just last week with pictures and she has mares bred with his foals. He is only 3 years old. I brought him home last night, yes I just put him in the back seat of an average car, and when we got back, there was something strange....
He had NO testicles! They were gone! No stiches or anything. Looks as if he was gelded months ago and everything healed up just fine. No evidence of being gelded. Just looks like a normal gelding. We went to look at him maybe 5 days ago and he HAD testicles. Now they aren't there! PLEASE tell me what is going on, I am not crazy!
I have never experienced or seen anything like this before. The previous owner (which I called this morning) said to tease him with a mare and I did, he isnt phased by my mare that is in heat! She said he used to run up and down the fence hollaring for the other mares..here he isnt even phased by them, even when a few are in heat. He has the stud trait of nipping, but that's about it.

His old owner said her grandpa or something like that said when they get nervous they can suck up there testicles?! Is this true. I have NEVER heard of anything like that. When we did look down there, he did have an indent that looked as if it was sucked up, but it honestly didn't look like anything at all! Just skin. Nothing hanging, no scrapes, cuts, stiches. Nothing!

My stud colt does it all the time... Ironically when I talk about getting him gelded! Hehe... He is still young and it could be possible that his testicles are yet heavy enough to stay decended at all times. Sam's testicles "suck up" and drop all the time. Sometimes one is there, sometimes both, sometimes neither of them... As far as I know, this is normal.

If he was recently gelded, like you said you had seen him 5 days ago, so that means he would of had to been gelded in the last week. You would see obvisous swelling and drainage and you could see where the vet made an insecision.

You might want to join us on Lilbeginnings mini horse forum. Look it up on the net. You will find a ton of very knowledgeable mini horse breeders there.

I seriously doubt this boy was gelded since you saw him. What is his name/breeding? Maybe I know him.

Yes, I agree, but there are no marks of any kind suggesting he was gelded.

Thanks Feathered Feet. I know he wasn't gelded, there are no stiches or anything. Just looks like nothings there.
I don't know his registered name. Papers are not with me just yet.

Thanks so much! That really helped. I think he did suck them up. Lol. He has two dimples where they should be and it looks like he is holding them up. It's just weird because you can't see or feel anything! Lol
