Gelding That Is Cut Still Reproduced

Recommended Posts

Bet it hasn't been quite that long, and you turned the colt out with the mare immediately after gelding. They can still be fertile up to 45 days after surgery.

The question arises here is who did it? Was he an animal's doctor or someone else? Consult a doctor if your really want to get the result. There might have been something undone at that time.

One of my project as a kid was the result of a 'gelding' on a cryptorchid that somehow missed the retained 'bits and pieces'. Usually these guys are infertile (temperature control), but it CAN happen that they are able to reproduce.

Talk to your vet. Either they got in together while he was still fertile, he has a retained testicle, or your mare has found herself a boyfriend somewhere else.

Surprise!

Hoping your mare and the unexpected foal end up healthy and okay.

Retained testicle or a local stud jumped the fence.

The gestation period for a horse is normally 11 months. The fact that it was 18 months ago that he was gelded, should have kept him from being the sire. Has he shown any signs of still acting like a stud? You might want to have him checked.

The next thing is to think back to any studs that were in your area eleven months ago.

Friends of mine had three unexpected foals from their retired riding mares. The vet found out when he came for their annual exam. The mares were a couple of months from foaling and everything went well for the mares and foals.

One of their neighbors was boarding a Trakehner stud for a couple of weeks. The neighbor's stud proof fencing, couldn't corral a trained jumping horse. It was done quietly in the middle of the night and no humans heard anything. They DNA'd the foals and sold them as sport horses.
