Miniature Horse Geldings

Tox is off with his new family, but we love this photo of him and the gorgeous view from our hills!

Generally we try to have at least one or two geldings for sale, but the demand has increased (yeah!), so often are "out of stock". We only geld between November - March (the no fly season), that can effect how many geldings we get done as well. We, also, prefer to wait to geld until our Minis are over the age of two if possible, (see growth plate chart). Bbut have gelded as early as six months (Woody was done at six months as there was a need!). It's a personal preference, and fortunately we have the space to accomodate the boys until we feel they're mature physically to be gelded.

There are benefits to gelding early and also gelding later and by no means wish to discourage anyone from gelding early! Better early than not at all. There is a consideration with Minis as there is some evidence that early gelding, may increase the height (search Google for the various opinions!). A great, thoughtful article on Gelding (and why you should) can be found on Natural Horse World.

We do do offer a Gelding Incentive Program for those that buy a colt/stallion and are willing to undertake gelding their colt/stallion.

If you would like to have your colt/stallion gelded before leaving, arrangements can be made through UC Davis Field Service (530) 752-0292. Any other health checks/vaccinations can be performed then as well. (If we are having a colt gelded at the same time, the field service travel fee will be split equally. UCD will need your billing information for all vet work.) If you would like your horse transported to UC Davis to be gelded, please confirm with UC Davis availaibility first, then contact us for details on transport costs.

We attend all geldings and encourage new owners to attend as well, but understand some aren't up for that!

Sample Gelding Contract language can be found here.

You can also Email or call for further details.

We lost Woody one of our lifers in November 2019, so only have two resident lifer geldings here now - Ray and Dash.

Wesco Farms Rayo del Sol aka "Baby Ray"

2001 AMHA/AMHR 30" Silver Bay Gelding
SIRE: Sugarcreek Houdini x DAM: Las Doradas Etoile de Mar

Baby Ray (still called a Baby at 18), was one of our first foals, back when shorter was the thing. He has the very old-style look - lots of body and no legs (50/50)! He has the same build and is a chunky-monkey much like his sire. We knew he was a lifer and definitely NOT breeding quality even as a foal. So, he's spent his life with the mare herd, generally with his half-sister Jiji or his buddy Dash.

Wesco Farms Spirits Dasho Honey aka Dash

2002 AMHR DNA/PQ 36" Palomino Pinto Gelding
SIRE: Quicksilvers Spirit x DAM: Las Doradas Little Honey

Dash is just a gorgeous Mini. We sold him as a weanling, and bought him back after we found he'd been in a series of homes and the last owner was going to take him to auction. He was gelded on his return and is a lifer now.

We did have him trained to drive (rock-solid great personality!), but right now he's a tad round and I'm not sure he'd fit in his harness! We'll have to check one day!

Wesco Farms Rocky B

2015 AMHR. 36" Black Gelding
SIRE: Wesco Farms Buckerowdyroo x DAM: Wesco Farms Bella Luna
