Well, today is the day. I always dread gelding, it's barbaric surgery & like most things, something could go wrong. It's being done at a vet clinic, so if something happened, it would be a much better place than out here for him.
One thing about the young ones, they usually don't even act like anything happened after they wake up & get their sea legs. We'll stay in Tucson quite awhile after he wakes up, to make sure his little legs will work on the 60 mile trip home. Sure wish the local vets would have been more cooperative about doing a youngster this late in the season, so he wouldn't have to travel so much. Momma Ruthie is going with us of course, so she can comfort him.
