So.. three, maybe even four, now, of our geldings have been making the noise that they need their sheaths cleaned. However, there is a slight problem:
2/4 of them hate water, and won't stand a second still while you hose them.
1/4 kicks out his back legs, out of irritation [working on that]
And the fourth one just tolerates water.
I was wondering if there were any other cleaning solutions available to cleaning? Would using a sponge and warm water be the next best solution? I did this on our mustang, the one who kicks, and he seemed alright. However, I could not soak the sheath enough to where it peeled off more easily.
Also... how do I get them to drop so as to give them a better cleaning? The mustang used to drop after riding, but he doesn't do that any more.
