Castration of colts is generally carried out between 2-3 years age.
Colts can be castrated standing under heavy sedation or, under a short anaesthesia.
The procedure involves the removal of both testicles.
The wounds are left open for drainage, so to aid in minimization of swelling and reduce the risk of infection.
A Castration Consent Form needs to be completed before any castration can be carried out.
