No, No. It was in his sheath.
What really makes me mad at myself is that I KNOW about sheath cleaning. His previous owner gave me vet paperwork where the vet claimed they had cleaned him just before I bought him. So I didn't think twice about it. Mentally kicking myself right now for not double checking. Who knows the last time my poor boy had a good cleaning before today. *sigh* you live, and you learn I guess.
EDIT: For reference in that picture, the stones next to it are just odd pebbles on the wash rack floor from hooves and such. I zoomed in to get a good picture of the piece (tried to make it good anyways, urgh, blur! oh well) so it looks a little bigger than it really was. It was about the length of my pinky and almost as thick around as my ring finger. Which I don't have overly large hands or anything...but you get the idea. But imagine that piece and 3 others like it and then imagine that being in your 'privates' *shudder*. That thing was a honker. My vet claimed it was definitely in his top 10 of biggest ones
*back under my rock of shame I go*
