Twinkie is actually doing AWESOME! He is boarded here with me now! And is doing great! Getting ready to go through some hormone therapy as he only has 1 testicle so we are going to see if we can get the other one to drop if that doesnt work he will be going in for an ultrasound and then cryptorchid surgery!!!! I will tell Jane you were thinking of her! :D

So glad to hear that little Twinkie is doing so well!!! Very Happy

But......this is just my opinion, I would NOT mess with the little fella doing hormone therapy!
I would just give him some time, my Inky's second testicle did not drop until he was over 2 years old, that's when I went ahead and had him gelded, as I did NOT want to take any chances with him going through a MAJOR surgery for the retained testicle.....it's hard enough for a dwarf to be sedated little lone go under anestesia for a major surgery.....Jane may loose him, if they try it....JMHO

Heck, if little Twinkie is not around other little mares, there's really no reason to have a normal gelding!

Well in order for him to be able to get turned out with our other mini donkey jenny he must be gelded. He will be getting evaluated at New Bolten Center so we will see what happens. He has become studdish so its his best interest to get him gelded and her goal is have him trained for nursing homes, don't want a hormonal boy running around lol. Also his foot is looking AWESOME! Almost completely straight with her new farrier and his corrective trimming work!!!! I will try and post some pics soon for you! Told her tonight that she needs to get back on here!

Yes, a gelding would be better for a therapy horse, that's for sure.
But I still wouldn't take the risk of a crytporchid surgery on the little fella. JMO

From my experiences with the Mini donkeys, I sure would be leary of putting little Twinkie in with one! They can be VERY aggressive, especially wheN they come into heat!

YES! Jane, we MISS you!!!!! Stop being a stranger to the forum, girlie!!! Very Happy

This little donk was actually severely abused and is scared of any other animals as well as people. She is also laid back when she was with several other minis, she is on the bottom of the pecking order. I talked to Jane about what you said, she is going to do lots of research and also consult several other vets as well as the highly renowned New Bolten Center and see what they think the safest approach will be! He is doing well otherwise right now. LOVES going for car rides to Tractor Supply and just going out and meeting new people!
