I wanted to thank you for this topic and the precious infos, today I finally tried the lube (not ky jelly, but I found something similar) and I was just amazed by the results!!
My horse never allowed me to clean deeeeep inside (his penis is never
outside if I'm around) until today! I think the lube really did make a difference, my glove was more slippery and it probably bothered him less.
I removed all
the big crusts that I couldn't even touch... and
I removed the bean!!!
I know that for some people it's pretty standard stuff, but I'm really happy that I finally could do it
