I have an older gelding that I can just rinse him out with the water hose.. and he will move closer to the fence for more! And I have one gelding that has got to be doped up , or he will kick the snot out of you. The smell always makes me gag.. I use gloves, it is not sanitary to use your bare hands. You could transmit bacteria etc using bare hands. ANy mild soap that rinses easy should work.

I read all the threads about how to clean a male horse's "unit", and can't help but cringe.
Horrible flashbacks to my physical upon leaving active duty, when they check EVERYTHING....and I mean EVERYTHING! Aaarrrggghhhhhhhh!

If he doesn't drop often, just squirt some baby oil up there and go for a ride. The gunk will fall out on it's own. After the ride, use a baby wipe or alcohol wipe to clean up around the outside of the area so there's no oily residue.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

That's a good idea, I am going to try that!
Stilts loves having his sheath cleaned....go figure...he will stretch and whip it out like a perv.

Zorro would just assume kick my head off.

My gelding doesn't drop so I go in after it. I can clean the whole thing, bean and all, without him dropping.

I use excalibur, warm water and sheet cotton. Squirt, wipe, pick, wipe some more and then rinse thoroughly. When he pees... spotless!

castille soap and cotton and warm water. The best way is to lightly sedate so you make sure get a good cleaning. Doing it at the same time as teeth float is good. Lightly sedate and kill 2 birds with 1 stone :). If can't do that then clean what you can and just check tip to make sure no bean is present.

They need cleaning too. Their teats(sp?) can be as nasty as the sheath. They're just easier to get to.

LOL, true, but I have noticed most guys have a small issue with cleaning a sheath rather than teats..lol

Teats hang down, and tits stick out...that is what my Ag teacher used to say....
