10-YO show horse, explosvie behavior. Thorough exam found a testicle, high flank. Vet argues that it must be a third...as he took off "two"...
The sire is "crypt"...so before I confront with the $3,500+ vet/surgery bills (to REMOVE). Just need an affirmative...'NO WAY" !!

Can't give it.

There have been instances of more than two testicles. It's rare, but it happens.

You might want to shop around for a price on the surgery too. We just had an abdominally retained colt castrated this week at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, and the cost was under $600.

I sold a colt to a friend, the vet gelded him at my place at about 8 months of age. The vet, owner, myself & another friend all saw 2 testes removed.

Strangely, the "gelding" is very quiet, but at times behaves like a stallion when he sees another horse. This is not consistent though & we just put it down to his personality. Eventually, my friend has him blood tested, results came back, testosterone the same level as a stallion.

Different vet this time, finds another testicle & removes it. Horse now behaves like a gelding.

Wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen the first gelding op myself.
