Okay, I am thinking it's time to cut my yearling stud colt. He has come over the fence 2 x's now and I don't want him to hurt himself.
The problem..... he hasn't dropped! I felt around and pushed up there but didn't feel a thing. Is it me or should I be a tad bit worried he hasn't dropped yet....
Just a side note too. He's not acting studdish, he just doesn't want to be away from the other horses. I've had him on pasture during the day with Prego until she foals. I don't even think I've ever seen him "hang-out and enjoy the breeze" so to speak.

hate to say it if he hasn't dropped by now he isn't going to.... those little ones should be dropped when they are pretty much born. He may relax when the vet give him a sedative and that may help but really I wouldn't wait any longer thinking he is going to drop... sorry

UGH! I will get with my vet this week. Maybe I'll load him up a make a trip on Tuesday.
I've heard they can hold'em up high as long as like 18 months or so.

as far as Im aware that is a myth... my vet swears that they should pretty much be dropped when the colt is dropped... my 3 colts all had both when we did navels... we check for those when we do navels...

SOME foals are born with their testi's dropped, and some can take up to about 24 months to fully drop. In tons of books, and out of the mouth of several vets around here. Most colts will drop them when they are born, but up until they are about 15 months, I wouldn't worry tons, but still keep checking to see if they have dropped or not.

Glad to hear that they are down Cindy! is this conclusion from you, or your vet?

It's from me. I got in there and really felt around. I'm sure he was like What The Heck! When I checked the other day I just checked real quick. This time I searched!
