I have a colt who is now 13 months old. About 2 months ago I felt both testicles, one almost behind the other...and one smaller. Tonight I checked again and could only find one for sure. Is it possible for one to drawback up?

Dani, It is totally possible for the testicles to go up and down. I have a two year old stud colt that did the same thing to me for quite a while. It hasn't been until just the last 2 months or so that his second testicle is down all the time now. But for the longest time I could definitely feel one testicle all the time and the other one could be felt ocassionally. If you have felt the second testicle, then it will more than likely fully descend after time.

Thanks for the info! I decided to try and find them again. Tied the colt up and groomed him for about 30 minutes, until he was almost dozing off. Sure enough...he dropped both testicles! YEAH! What a relief!
