    The sheath cleaning story is a funny one. Problem is that it's way too close to the truth. Small children and old ladies show up every time you clean the sheath. Some horses cooperate and some do not. I regularly touch our boy's tummy/abdomen. I just want him to be used to us touching the nether-regions.

    I have used a mild soap to clean but prefer KY. You must rinse off every last drop of soap or lotion but KY (or generic version) is safe to leave on if you don't rinse it all off.

    I nearly lost my arm once while cleaning Joshie. You just cannot imagine how very deep those nether-regions are.

    Sheath cleaning every 6 to 12 months is far easier than dealing with moody females!

    Makes me glad the vet does it, lol. I figure the vet can do a better job anyway, the horse gets sedated for it

    The Sheath Cleaning Song
    Author Unknown

    Sing it to the tune of "Hello Mother, Hello Father" from camp song


    How's it hangin'?
    So much cleaner.

    Aren't you glad I
    washed your wiener?

    I'll admit it's
    kinda creepy

    that I had to stick my arm up in your pee-pee.


    It was sticky.
    It was gunky.

    It felt icky.
    It smelled funky.

    It was cruddy,
    it was crusty--

    when you stuck it out, it creaked like it was rusty.


    After half an
    hour of toilin'

    and of squirtin'
    baby oil in,

    you're as fresh there
    as a daisy.

    Either this means I love you or else I'm crazy!!!

    I actually had no problem doing besides trying to keep him down. I actually realized one day that everytime I scratched on the side of his belly on the right side, he would slightly drop, so I tried to roll it back and then he just fell out. So when I was ready to clean it, I just rubbed that one spot and was able to get it out. I did have to reach up a couple times, but once you get a hold of it
    (but don't grip too hard) and it will come down again. It helps if they have a spot :). I also asked the vet and she said that to get most of it off, but you don't have to make it squeaky clean. And excalibur is awesome!!
