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!
