In a bid to combat the problem of overbreeding of equines in Ireland Hungry Horse Outside enforces a strict castration policy.
It is prevalent that we do so as each stallion is capable of reproducing hundreds of unwanted horses/ponies/donkeys throughout the span of its lifetime. We would encourage anyone with a colt to please consider castration as an option. It not only alleviates unwanted breeding but also makes horses more homeable.
Since the beginning of 2013 Hungry Horse Outside have castrated 63 colts (a colossal figure), a huge but necessary expense.
Each colt costs on average €100 to geld. Please ,please start castrating your colts.
