    Good Luck with the gelding.

    I am trying to decide when to schedule my colt's brain surgery, but I think it needs to warm up at least a little bit.

    Pilsner will make a lovely gelding. Jingling for a quick recovery.

    Heron, who had his balls removed and a hernia repaired last week and is doing just fine, sends his best wishes to Pilsner.

    Glad to hear things are good with your kid.

    I had one of ours taken care of a few months ago. The next time I went to get him from the pasture, he looked at the halter and backed away. I swear he was saying "I'm not so sure about that thing Mom. The last time I let you put it on me, things didn't go so well for me."

    Poor kid........LOL

    Oh Pilsner knows its coming...! I told him this morning to enjoy them one more day as after tomorrow there will be no excuses for bad testosterone related behavior! I sware he rolled his eyes at me when I said it...LOL... His two favorite horses in my barn (both mares) have also decided that they no longer want to associate with him...I took that as the final sign of ITS TIME!

    Ah, I remember being in that situation last year at this time when my boy was having his "Manly Removal"! One of the happiest days of my life.

    I also had his wolf teeth removed while he was down. Saved myself another farm call and sedation charge.

    Good luck with gelding day. We had our gelding day on Tuesday....everything went perfectly fine. The cold weather definitely means no problems with flies.

    I had my boy "taken care of" in December, just a couple days before Christmas, I called it his Christmas present

    ... tell him he will thank you later when he can be treated as a normal horse and can interact socially with everyone.

    My old trainer was actually giggling to herself leading up to De-Nutting day, and started looking around for anything else that could use De-Nutting. For some reason her husband made himself really scarce that week

    We just did our 15 month old large pony today. He was thinking rude thoughts in the pasture.

    He is recovering nicely and will be in tonite. Wish him well also. His name is Reagan!!

    The Silver Yearling lost his extra parts two weeks ago today. He did have a bit of a reaction to the ketamine - he went under more quickly than expected and was what my vet called a "twitcher" - but 2 hours later, he was calmly munching hay, and 2 weeks later, he doesn't know at all. No change in his attitude toward me at any point. I do wonder if he might not be as glad to see the vet next time.

    Just curious, what do you consider to be unacceptable "stud colt things"?
