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.
Haha. Smart horse.

Yeah, I am very glad to have a mare. It was definitely an eye opener (haha) reading the information.

At my old stables we'd have "sheath cleaning day" twice a year xD they'd demonstrate and then we'd all get down to it ;) it was quite an event. Mostly because the vet would end up doing everyones xD

Mares need to be cleaned too.

^--- I was just going to call everyones attention to the udders!!! Lots of gross black stuff up in there. My mare actually likes it, and in the summer I often get caught rubing it out of there. Don't ignore the mares udders, they get gross and you never see it. Also, many people sedate their horses for sheath cleaning not to make him stand nicely, but make him drop. Just a little ace and they lose all control of that part dropping it down nicely to get everything off. It's easier if you have some around and are qualified to give them a little cocktail, some horses you would never get really really clean if they aren't dropped.

Why is it that some don't need to be cleaned? My guy is also spotless, it's unbelieveable, but his paddock buddy is always dirty. I'm so lucky (so far!)

OMG I have used the sheath cleaning gel.
I had to con my boy. I gave him a groom and there it was, waiting for me! I grabbed the gel and squeezed a handful into my palm, turned round, and guess what the rod of stallion was no where to be seen. He is so clever. I then asked my friend to groom him, then on cue it dropped. I made a grab for it (I should have warmed the gel up, will remember next time).
I held it firmly and rubbed in the sheath cleaning gel. His back legs kicked and quivered a bit, so I don't think he enjoyed it much.
I FORGOT TO WEAR GLOVES! It was a spur of a moment thing, ooohh, The boy stuff was now on my hands it came off him straight away. I'm saying to my friend poor some water on my hands. She did and it was like glue it was stuck to me, double oohh. I had to submerge my hands and get a cloth.
He looks great lovely and shinny!
I'm sure my horse thinks I'm a pervert.
