Best Answer

The castration of a male horse is a complex operation. If you love your horse, please consult a veterinarian. Gelding is NOT an operation that you can carry out at home. It is excruciatingly painful for the horse if not done with proper anaesthesia and the quietest animal will probably injure you badly.

If you just cut off the testicles, you will cause such severe haemorraging that you could even kill the horse. Vets go through a complicated procedure to remove them and sometimes just crush the spermatic cord without removing the testicles.

Whichever method is used, it is absolutely not a job for anybody except a competent, qualified vet. Do not risk hurting your horse and yourself by trying to do it without the proper knowledge and equipment.

Do not try to do this on your own. I have seen a vet in the process of gelding a horse. it is difficult even for trained vets. if you try to by yourself, even if you are a skilled horseperson, unless you are a vet it is not smart at all to geld it yourself. Call a vet. You and/or your horse would go through horrible pain or death. Do not blame the horse if he is in pain.

At what age should a horse be gelded?

A horse can be gelded at any age depending on what the situation is. Many people claim that if you wait until the horse is fully grown that the horse will have more muscle. Others say that if you geld a horse early (10 or 12 mos) that he will grow taller. I'm not sure that there is any truth to any of that. I would recommend gelding at an early age if you are going to geld. I don't think that there is any reason to leave a horse a stud if your intent is to geld him at some point. I geld at about a year old.

When is a good time to geld a horse?

The best time to geld a horse can vary somewhat by location and the horses age. As soon as the testicles drop a horse can be gelded, this is generally between 18 to 24 months of age. If both or neither testicle has dropped then you may have a cryptorchid which will require a more extensive castration. It is generally best to geld a horse in fall or winter to help keep pests such as flies and gnats away from the wound. But early spring can be a good time as well, provided there is not a lot of rain and mud. If the horse is aggressive or in pain then it is best to geld as soon as possible, regardless of the time of year.

at an early age, you don't want to wait so long that they still think they are a stallion even after you geld them, this may cause your horse to become green, be difficult to train, and have bad behavior especially around mares.

Do stallion horses grow more than geldings?

If I remember correctly, from what I heard, a stallion grows more in muscle tone, while a gelding grows more in hieght. So, if you geld a horse when he is young (before he is 1) he will grow to be taller rather than..whats the word..buffer? something like that. and if you wait longer, then he will get stockier, rather than tall. If you get it in the middle, then you will have a slightly buff, slightly tall horse. However, the longer you wait to geld, the more permanent the stallionish behaviors become ingrained in the horse. If your horse is a nice mannerly colt, you can probably wait, but if he is wild and unruly, its best to geld him ASAP

How old does a stallion have to be to geld?

Even though you can geld a colt a few months after being born, it is a good idea to geld them around two or three years old to prevent the horse from mounting horses in the pasture. This is also a good idea because this is the age where colts begin to get aggressive around mares and gelding the colt will prevent this. Waiting anywhere after five years old is probably a bad idea.
