Showjumplife, had to go back to the original post, never caught the once a month reference. You are right, for most geldings 2 x's a year is sufficient. This will depend on the individual horse, like Walka who does extend alot (he's very proud
) and doesn't get real gunky up there.
However, most of the breeders that I know cleaned their stallions often, though I'm sure with gentle cleansers, during breeding season so as not to cause any infections ect... to the mare. I am not a breeder, so I can only go by what I have seen and been told by those breeders that I know.
