I use ivory soap. I have never used KY. I get a bucket of warm water, some ivory soap and a hose.... The warm water makes the stuff come off easier so it does not hurt them. Wash em' up and hose em off, It is sensitive as you can imagine

YouTube - sheath cleaning

Not completely sure if that will work, but just go on and search it. It's not that hard :)

Just remember... people always come to visit right when you are gettin' dirty LOL :)

I'd suggest seeing if he'll let you before adding KY, soap, or anything else because the last thing you want is to have stuff squirted up there and be unable to clean it off.

If he won't let you..... vet, good drugs and the best $25 I ever spent. He was so drugged he could barely get his head off the ground but dang could he still kick!!

Those are excellent videos on sheath cleaning. K-Y Jelly can be bought at a pharmacy or any store that sells health and beauty products. The KY has no harmful irritants. I have used it for every sheath cleaning I've done. Even rinsing it out is not necessary. It helps to loosen the smegma and makes removing it much easier. There is a product called Excalibre that is also a sheath cleaner.

Try baby oil :) You can squirt it up there and it cleans itself pretty much. My gelding really needs his done, I forgot to bring the baby oil today though when I was riding. He's not shy with it! Haha

Thanks everybody, you're really helpful

I did today, just with water, he didn't dropped, so I went into the sheath. I didn't find the bean, he doesn't have a hard lump which should be there if he had it. Got out a lot of smegma :P

He didn't protest once, actually I think he enjoyed, he made that "scratch me" face

And in the end I just put the hose in his sheath, he wasn't too happy about it, but he tolerated it without causing me any problems :)

Thanks again everybody!
