Just curious if anyone else has had any experience with these. Had one a few years ago and got him gelded at 21 days as this ways the easiest and safest option. He grew fine and no one could pick that he had been gelded so early. Now Im faced with another one who we were hoping to keep as a colt. i know he can be operated on and kept in tact. Was just wondering if anyone has had this done, and how it went.

Sorry, I haven't but you have my sympathy. what a worry. Is there any chance it may improve with time? Still I do not suppose you have any choice but to sort it out. Hope all goes well. Pagan
