I love my gelding to death but I dare say that he is much more on the tempermental side than a mare. Everybody at the barn says they bought gelding because they were so much more relaxed and less moody. I managed to get the odd ball! But I love him.
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.
Another suggestion for the horse you mentioned, maybe his muscles are in knots and everything feels achey as a result. Massage therapy could maybe help him. Massage, cleaning...time for a spring two point tune up!
Hey, read this post last night and went to bed determined to get up in the morning and clean my horses sheath for the first time! I'm proud to infrom everyone that my horses private part is squeaky clean 8)
I couldnt remove all of the bean though but the vet is coming to do their teeth soon so ill be sure to take advantage
