OFF WITH THEIR NUTS!!!!!
The deed is done. Boots, Honey and Portfolio no longer have their dangly bits.
Boots and Honey were really not breeding quality and while Portfolio was, he is now six and had never been bred. We have his full brother Impact, so he isn't needed for our program and there is no market for a six year old unproven herdsire.
Gelding them will make them much more affable and will make living arrangements easier.
Very interesting to watch the procedure, I haven't even seen a horse gelded. Give em some drugs, a few cuts with a scalpel, pull out the testicle, cut some things, a few ligatures, push it back in and BAM, instant nice guy!
