Well I recently cleaned Buzzs shealth, I checked for a bean but I didn't really know what I what it looked like.

I just watched the video showing how to check for a bean but the horse didn't have a bean so it wasn't much help.

But when I checked Buzz penis for a bean lifted up the skin it was like all white inside, like sticky to the wall,the video showed that there was nothing there so I am thinking something is wrong.

He isn't uncomfortable peeing, well I don't think he is.

Has anyone else ever seen like white stuff inside the penis??
Is that a bean should I try and get it out? If it comes out that is

Ummm just a question, is he a stallion or a gelding? Well if he is a stallion you can kinda guess what I am going to suggest.....
But I wouldnt have a clue of what to look for so sorry I can't help you.

They don't always have a bean. The bean is usually in the urethral fossa (if you google this you come up with lots of helpful sites) but I know my gelding doesn't always have one. He's really good about letting me clean his sheath and check for beans so I just do it whenever he's dropped while grooming. This might be why I don't often see the bean, but if you don't clean frequently you should be able to clean one out. Be careful though! Not all boys appreciate this and the worst kicks I have seen have been while sheath cleaning.

Wow what a good boy you have. That doesn't look too concerning to me, just normal smegma which is what accumulates and becomes a bean.

Can beans hurt them??

Redtree- that little shmutz should come right off, especially if you use a little sheath cleaner (I prefer Ivory soap, does the same job and costs a fraction of excalibur's price).

Pinto- the bean needs to be removed. It can cause problems with urination and harbor certain types of infection (more of a concern with breeding but not a bad idea to keep your gelding as clean as possible)
