I have read in many posts and books and articles that it is not uncommon for a stallion to not drop his second testicle until the age of 3yrs. What I'm wondering is, that if one testicle is retained for much longer than the other, will the retained testicle, once it drops fully into the scrotum be a mature testicle? Once it drops, does it finally reach a normal size, or does it stay small and somewhat immature?

Yes, Sandy. I have a stallion that didn't drop until he was three, he is six now, and the retained teste is now the same size as the other. Hope this helps.

THANK YOU so much! I have looked all over on information about this subject, and everything I see has been so negative. Saying that if your colt doesn't have two fully developed, dropped testicles by the time they are 18 mos. old, you might as well consider them cryptorchid and have them gelded. I know my colt is dropping his second testicle, as there are times I can feel it quite well, but it is just so much smaller than the one that has already dropped that I was worried that it wouldn't fully develop.
Thanks again!

I have been reading on here about stallions that took their time dropping their testicles. My stallion is a yearling (born end of May of 2009). He has not dropped at all. I tried HgC for 3 months with no luck. I talked to the vet and he palpated him and thought he felt them, but wasn't sure. I'm very concerned, since he is an up and coming breeding stallion. hopefully. Thank you!
