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

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
