    Ok that makes me think because my friends horse is very lazy and has almost no muscle because he doesn't do anything really. He drags his feet and trips all the time. I have been around them for a good maybe 5 to 6 years and I don't think I have ever seen her clean his sheath. Could cleaning his sheath help this? He also has weight issues but he obviously doesn't have any beans as I see him pee alot all the time. But maybe he's a little dirty in there and this might help? I'm not even sure but we try to help this horse all the time its becoming hopeless and this is just another one of my ideas.

    Like I said, my boy was dragging his feet. Now that he is squeaky clean, he is really picking his feet up so much more! Fella dropped fine too before we cleaned him, but it was unbelievable how much gunk was up there! It wouldn't hurt for your friend to check out the situation!

    Okay here's another one


    The Sheath Cleaning Song
    Author Unknown

    Sing it to the tune of "Hello Mother, Hello Father" from camp song

    How's it hangin'?
    So much cleaner.
    Aren't you glad I
    Washed your wiener?

    I'll admit it's
    Kinda creepy
    That I had to stick my arm up in your pee-pee.


    It was sticky.
    It was gunky.
    It felt icky.
    It smelled funky.

    It was cruddy,
    It was crusty--
    When you stuck it out, it creaked like it was rusty.


    After half an
    Hour of toilin'
    And of squirtin'
    Baby oil in,
    You're as fresh there
    As a daisy.

    Either this means I love you or else I'm crazy!!!

    One of my boys (I have 3) had a bean the size of a half dollar. It was HUGE!! Could you image how much pain he had been in for so long?? The lady I bought him from hadn't cleaned his sheath in years.... UGH!!!

    It is a neccesary thing to do if you have geldings. Just like Melinda said, Rocket was running around like he was a 2 year old (he's 14!) . He also urinated quite a bit after wards...almost like he was having a hard time with even the peeing aspect! I felt so bad for him!

    That's great about Rocket! I am sure you enjoyed watching him buck and fart around...I know I did with Fella!
    Rather than being turned off by cleaning, I am glad I learned. My boy will be happier for it in the long run!

    Sheath cleaing is not that bad. Especially once you realize how much happier your horse is. Baby wipes work great as well. They are soft and gentle. A little cool at first but they break all the gunk up and still leave him baby soft.

    Having to clean a sheath is to me a much better deal than having to deal with a tempermental mare. Bought m boys for a reason
