I don't think my colt has dropped yet?
So I bought my first horse almost a year ago in May. He was 2 weeks old when I picked him out. He's going to be 9 months old tomorrow and I haven't seen his boys. So then I read that you can try feeling for them. No luck there either... I just tried finding them a few minutes ago outside.
I heard from friends of mine that you can geld as early as 6 months, and that was always my plan. Except that I'm in alberta and its freezing cold right now. But Theres no rush because the neighbour horses he has contact with are all geldings. And he's my only horse.
But I'm getting concerned that I havent seen them yet? I also have to send him to another farm this fall to be horse sat while I go to nova scotia to visit family. So I definitely need to address it before that.
So my question is...how unusual or usual is this? Should I assume that by now theyre not going to drop on their own?
