And you can see and feel a couple of little crusty things on it. In just this amount of time. And also I have no idea how to get the bean. And i'm way to chicken to try incase I hurt one of them lol
Ya know, I've never thought about what age to start - most my geldings have been at least 4 when I've got them. Finn is a yearling, I've never cleaned him yet, but haven't seen any need - when he drops, he's clean as a whistle. I guess I'd just figured once he is gelded, and shows signs of needing it. I've hand to "handle" him enough checking to see if his other teste has dropped (still hasn't) in prep for gelding, so sheath cleaning should be no biggy for him. But you make me wonder if I should have done it by now.
