The area under my horse's tail is SUPER nasty because he's got a chronic issue with loose BMs. He doesn't have diarrhea, his bloodwork looks fine, he's not losing weight, he doesn't appear to be ill, he just make wet poop. And it gets on his tail, and his hocks, and his butt, and ugh. It doesn't seem to itch his butt, since he doesn't rub or bite it or anything, it's just...there. And manky and nasty. I'd like to keep this tidy, but I'd have to be cleaning it every single day (and even then...sigh...).
I know there are people who won't clean their gelding's sheath. I know this because when I cleaned Huey's (the month after I bought him) he had a bean the size of a 50-cent piece. Clearly had not been done in QUITE a while.
