    I recently used the Buridizzo for the first time on a yearling that we no longer wish to breed and it's now been a couple of weeks, his testicles look a bit smaller but he's still acting a bit Randy...

    How long until I know for sure that I did it correctly and can let him out with the girls???

    I am thinking 30 days.....before you can put him in with the does.....but to make sure... call your vet and verify this..... :wink:

    It is hard to tell, but maybe allow 6-8 weeks, saying this because some little swimmers escaped on ones that got done with the burdizzo last year and I have three white kids! Regardless even when they are done - they may still act buckish, though should be without the smell.

    re burdizzo... I dont really know, cause I got Tristan done and 2 months later he was still mounting the does etc - but, he didnt actually DO anything.
