A very frustrated colt!

Is it s TB? Lots of horses are kept entire because they are well bred and the owners are hoping that at the end of their racing careers they may find some sort of stud home - maybe for hunters, showjumpers or ponies.

It is a TB and I think you're probably spot on - but having a literal turn of mind I am a bit bemused as to where the poor boy's testicles are right now

We had a colt who wasn't running well and we thought his enormous balls were causing him some discomfort. We therefore gelded him and the vet reported they "were like melons"!

Sad to say he hasn't shown huge improvement since (his mind is on other things) but hopefully he goes to York in August.

I'll keep my fingers crossed he improves as his hormones calm down a bit
