I'm also the go to girl when it comes to anything sheath related because I've got no reserves about cleaning them. I know it has to be done to keep the horse healthy so I really don't care about the awkward looks and funky smells. The only thing that makes it awkward is when the horse starts trying to groom me while I'm elbow deep. Nothing's worse than getting hit on by the horse when you're messing around with his junk. I think I'm going to print the link and tack it in the barn. I'm sure a lot more people will be willing to clean their boys if they knew not everyone takes it seriously or thinks they're violating their horse. Maybe it will encourage the guys around the barn to do their own cleaning lord knows they make as much if not more of a fuss about it than the girls.
My horse also believes that sheath cleaning day is "date night". I've thought about dressing as a nurse to make it seem more clinical but the costume shop only has "sexy nurse" available and I think that would send him the wrong message. Posted via Mobile Device
