OMG ya'll are just too funny, but I have four boys and they all need to be done,so I'm debaiting on doing it, it will be so much easier to call the vet to do it.

I've recently learned a couple of lessons.
1) Sheath cleaning, although gross, is easy when there is no bean.

A) Use generic, inexpensive KY.
B) Rinse well.
C) If you can't rinse don't worry too much as KY will dissipate on its own.

2). Sheath cleaning is not so easy when there is a bean.

A) It hurts when someone digs a large chunk of goo out of your nether-regions.
B) You need to "kiss" a horse before bean dipping.
C) Rub the nether-regions with KY often....even when not bean dipping. It feels good.
D) Provide grain and tie your horse so that he's against a wall.
E) Regular "kissing" without any attempt to remove the bean may be necessary after the first bean removal.
F) Horses remember that bean dipping hurts and will cross their legs if you even act like you might LOOK at their nether-regions.
G) Good luck. Pleasuring a horse is, well, something I never imagined I'd ever do.....but we do still have some bean left in there.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

Get Excalibur, it works great. My 6 year old gelding loves being cleaned, his old owner was a little to lonely I believe. She would rub his leg and talk to him, he will drop every time you touch him! My older boys hate being cleaned though. They won't drop so I just try to clean as much of the gunk off as I can while it's still in the sheath, it's an elbow deep job.

My boyfriend refuses to be around whenever it's sheath cleaning time :/

I think I paid $2 or $3 for generic KY at Walmart.

Oh my good ness!!!! I need to pick myself up off the floor!

I remember a vet (a very hot looking young man) telling me that if I wasn't elbow or more up I just wasn't doing it right... I was two days from my due date, bigger than a barn and still can remember the silence as the techs, me, my friend all looked at each other before dying laughing at his "enuendo".

I love the songs!!!!!! I am glad my barn is secluded! :)
