Good to get them cleaned at least every 6 months. But if you can do it more frequently, the better. Beans are very uncomfortable :(

I first heard that sound when I had an unexpected lunging lesson after my horse tried to bite me. Needless to say, the thought never crossed his mind again.

Watch how he urinates.....spraying can be a sign. But the best way to tell is to look and feel inside his exit area.

My vet usually gets the beans outta my boy, but I clean his sheath on an as needed basis. He doesn't like anyone messing around "down there" so I have to be quickl about it. Any ideas on how to get him more comfy with the process?

I'm having the same problem with mine...he looks at me all wide-eyed then tries to get away haha. He tends to get quite dirty though, how do I go about getting him to tolerate me cleaning him properly?

no its not serious, but I means that they are upset or worried. My tb used to have gut noises when I first got him and he always had them everytime he was ridden lunged etc. eventually when he got to trust me more and more, the less the gut noises appeared.

Yeah, my boy only makes those noises when he's tense- for him it has nothing to do with his cleanliness.

As for getting the boys to cooperate? Make sure you're gentle, have trimmed and filed your fingernails, and use warm water. Then it's just practice, going slow, and sometimes giving them a slap on the rump if they're just being boogers and know full well they're supposed to hold still. If it's something brand new to them, recognize that they may not understand that this too is something they're expected to stand quietly for, so you have to practice and desensitize or train them to stand nicely just like you would for having their feet picked, their mane pulled, being clipped, shots, or any of those other things horses would generally prefer we not do.

Aw...well I am wrong then. Though who I learned that from was my very first trainer and looking back....I can't say i'm surprised.

Ahhhh... thanks for that. He's my first gelding. I've always had mares! :)

What exactly do beans look like? Are they white?
