Question How long is a horse fertile after gelding?

Hi, we recently had our yearling stud colt gelded (one week ago). I just wondered if anyone knows how long a horse would be fertile? He has never bred anyone, and is only a year old. I am wanting to turn him out with a yearling filly, and don't want to take any chances. What does everyone think? Thanks for the opinions...my vet said 1-3 weekskinda a big window if you ask me

If it were my horses I would wait a month!

Better safe then sorry, it gives your guy plenty of healing time before he runs around with a new playmate, and they wont create any unwanted horses for the furture!

Its a win, win, win situation...

right now, one is kept inside, the other out...then switch. I would like to have them both out stretching those legs as much as possible. It took 4 weeks to get the vet here to do the procedure. That has put me really in a bind for pasture. We wanted to move them to the new pasture (about 10 miles away) but don't want to turn one out alone, and my gelding needs to stay home so he can work. Donkey could go, i guess.
