Coming Two Year Only One Has Dropped

Postby LizCar » Mon Apr 02, 2018 6:32 pm

Hi. I bought a five month old colt in 2016. He was the last son out of a deceased stallion that I always wanted a colt from. He was the color I wanted genetically and from a breeder I had always dreamed of getting a foal from. He was bought as a stallion prospect. The breeder is a well known breeder and her reputation is important to her. Of course when I first inquired on the foal my first question was "two testicles?" She said yes, both were there at birth, she always checks her colts. And I believe her. Right before he shipped out, he was five months, she called and told me that particular day there was only one. I thought nothing of it as they were both there at birth and my colts frequently hide one or both here and there while they are growing. Here we are now, fast forward, he is coming 2 in June and he still only has one testicle and I have never been able to find the second. I had a vet out about a month ago to flush a wound he had acquired on his shoulder. While he was lightly sedated I asked him to check for his testicle. He could not find it. He did NOT do a rectal exam, lay the horse down or check real thoroughly, the horse was also still pretty aware and not impressed and it was cold, cold, cold. But that was the outcome of the exam. I would like to hear some thoughts and opinions on the matter. I don't need to know what a cryptorchid horse is or how it works etc, I know all of that full well. I would like to hear any professional thoughts or thoughts from those who may have had experiences that are similar. I thought if the testicles are there at birth, you are good to go? I also 100% believe a horse CAN drop past the age of 2. I am contemplating having a thorough exam done, on the side, rectal, ultrasound etc but I don't know if that will be useful? Thanks for listening. :)
