When to castrate

The testicles of a normal stallion descend from the abdomen into the scrotum during birth. Castration can be performed immediately after birth, but usually with this time for several reasons. First of all, this gives the owner of the foal more time to determine if the young horse has prospects as a producer stallion. Secondly, it allows you to lay down male characteristics, such as muscle structure, strength and character.

Often castration is used to solve organizational problems. Thus, the construction of equestrian infrastructure often implies the joint placement of young horses of both sexes. Continue reading

Sometimes after lying surgery

To minimize hair loss, skin damage and reduce the chances of erasing the base of the tail, you need to clean your hind legs and the area under the horse’s tail every day. Use warm water for washing, wipe dry with a towel and apply a fresh layer of petroleum jelly. During washing, do not spray water directly onto the wound. Too much wiping can also irritate the skin. A horse accustomed to washing will make it easier for you to care for it. To keep a teenager in place, you need to ask an assistant to hold his front leg, being careful.

Castration of horses

Castration of stallions is a simple surgical procedure with little risk. Sperm are produced in the testes, mature and stored in the epididymis, from where they are excreted through the vas deferens during ejaculation. The testicles, epididymis, part of the spermatic cord and testicular covering are removed from the stallion. After that, already at the gelding, sperm production is immediately stopped, but the recently castrated horse is still responding to the mares.

This is due to the presence of an ampoule, a sperm reservoir at the end of the vas deferens. Because the ampoule is not removed during marinating, the gelding can potentially cover the mare for up to one month after castration. But a month later, the sperm that remained in the vial during castration no longer exists. Continue reading

Dressage horses

The art of riding a horse in and out appeared immediately after a person realized that a horse can not only be harnessed, but also ride a horse. Different peoples established control over animals differently. But in most cases, these were all kinds of strict devices – mouthpieces, spurs, pilars and whips, which made it possible in a short time to break the resistance of the animal and force it to submit to the will of man. Greek commander, politician and scientist Xenophon left his followers the doctrine of how to tame and go round horses for the army. Since the middle of the XVII century. to handle horses, thanks to the efforts of Antoine Pluvinel, became softer. Continue reading
