Little Bears Ridgling Medical Care

$175 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 4 people in 11 months
Little Bear was saved from the kill pen at around 6 months old.  He has ridgling, and he requires a more intense operation. 

He was adopted by us when he attached himself to our horse Toby (Oil Tumbles). He is such a sweet little horse. Please help us, help him!

Please see this link for more information on our sweet Little Bear's needs.

"Cryptorchidism in Horses. Cryptorchidism is the failure of one or both testes to descend into a normal scrotal position from the abdominal cavity after birth.

Cryptorchidism may not be apparent at birth, as the testes do not drop from the abdominal space, through the inguinal canal and ring and into the scrotum – where they remain – until after birth. The time it takes before both testes have descended varies from horse to horse but both testes should be in the scrotum by two years of age. In all cases of one undescended testicle, the stallion will still be able to produce normal amounts of testosterone. Usually, the undescended testicle is much smaller than the descended one.

If one or both of the testicles remain in the abdomen, the horse is said to be a rig, or ridgling. A stallion that is a cryptorchid should not be used for breeding, as it is suspected to be a genetic problem. The left testicle is more commonly retained than the right."
