Honestly this is such an easy task that I don't see a reason to sedate a horse for it....unless your horse totally freaks out when you touch his nether-regions.

Remember you still have to wash a mares teats, they can get dirty and nasty just as easily.

LOVE the song BTW.

Has anybody ever had a clean boy? Java doesn't really get dirty. Every few years I'll find something to pick out. Even the vet gives him the OK.

I'm not sure why that is. I've had other geldings who practically had to be cleaned DAILY. Why are some so dirty and others aren't?

I don't have a problem with sheath cleaning but I'm not really very squeamish with things like that.
Chunky actually enjoys having his done and will stand there quite happily, but Joe is a different story and hates it so I have to take it really slowly.
I have some sheath cleaning gel that I use to get all the crusty bits out and then just give it a rinse with water.

Not all the horses get sedated, but if they need to be sedated for something else, the vet will just do it whi;e they are sedated

Here's another song.



To the tune of "If you're happy and you know it"....

If it's hanging and you see it lube your hands
If it's hanging and you see it lube your hands
If it's hanging and you see it
Grab it quick it's time to clean it
If it's hanging and you see it lube your hands.

If it's peely and it's crusty pick it off
If it's peely and it's crusty pick it off
If it's peely and it's crusty
And the smell is kind of musty
If it's peely and it's crusy pick it off

If his weenie has a beanie dig it out
If his weeny has a beanie dig it out
If his weiner has a beaner
Pull it out and he'll be cleaner
If his weenie has a beenie dig it out

Now he's happy and you know it wash your hands
Now he's happy and you know it wash your hands
It's a job that's kind of kinky
And now your hands are really stinky
But he's happy and you know it wash your hands.

^^ that's the song I know, lol.

Both my geldings are very clean boys. Cleaned them both about a year ago now, and they are still nearly as clean as the day after. Gotta love them!

My boy gets his old man out after every ride, so I give it a quick wipe,. He puts it straight back in to the old cave when I touch it.
He has now cottoned on to me and the sponge, so as soon as he sees the sponge it's gone. He gets it out when he thinks the coast is clear when the rug goes back.
But I've got a surprise for him, i've just bought some new sheath cleaning gel. Going to try it out this weekend.
