Anyone know what the term "long colt" means? I'm assuming a colt that was gelded late?

In a lot of places long yearling is used to describe something past a year but not quite 2. Also many use colt as a generic term not as a description of sex. So I could see it being the same as or similar to long yearling.

I've never heard the term used that way. Usually it's long yearling or 2 year old meaning it's getting close to them getting another year older.

Maybe it means he's almost a yearling? That would be my best guess.
only heard it as a long yearling, meaning it is almost two .
Thanks everyone. :)

I understand this is about horses. But , kinda relevant, it's also a term used for a cartridge . From the old west, and used in cowboy western action shooting events.
