    My gelding gets really nasty but he hates it done! I try it do it atleast every couple of months. Once he had a bean the size of the quarter! He wasn't too happy about that! He tries to kill me. I get tranquilzers from the vet sometimes.

    Sock? That's the first I've heard that. Does it just provide more grip?

    My gelding gets done 2 or 3 times a year. He actually needs to be drugged to be done so do it pretty much any time he gets drugged.

    I clean my gelding's sheath about every 3 months. I don't know ow it gets so dirty, but he's always got a ton of smegma. And he never gives me any problem, long as I don't try to flake the smegma off while it's dry. I use cotton wash cloths and soak them in warm water with dawn dish soap, then I put them into his retracted sheath as far as they'll go, and let them soak there until I wash the rest of his body. When I pull them out, I them use one to finish washing the area, and that's all there is to it. It's tedious and takes a lot of time and you have to be gentle so you don't hurt his sensitive area. But if you own a stallion you don't have to clean the sheath as long as he's exposed to mares.

    My gelding wouldn't let me clean his sheath. It was such a pain, I would get the vet to do it when he came out.

    Now I clean my filly's utter. Much easier, she doesn't care. Haha.
