You DO realize that MS and HS girls are going to find this post and your pictures?!? ROFL!!
We just talked about this on another post, so I'll re-direct you.
How often should you sheath clean?
To be short and sweet, just do it, and clean a little at a time, do it often and he'll get used to it. Although it's not likely for a gelding/stallion to be seriously injured in or around his...stuff... you don't want to see your Vet hurt. MY Vet was kicked--NOT MY HORSE!!--and the gelding was sedated when he kicked her with BOTH hind feet as she was cleaning his sheath. You would want you horse attended to, especially if he had an injury or laceration there. She was considering giving up treating horses, as a result--same horse owner's mare had previously bit her in the face. (I told her to do so, but she could keep treataing my GOOD horses.)
I routinely clean my gelding's sheaths--always have, I've been kicked at once or twice over the years (warnings) but never hit--mostly they ignore me, but I never linger. The dirtiest sheaths are on geldings who pee without dropping down. The stallion owners here will tell you that their stallions have pretty clean sheaths.

Okay, so today when my horse was tied up and I was grooming him I took what you guys told me to heart, and... I rolled up my sleeves when he dropped, and stuck my hand up their, pulled back the fold, and removed a bean. Well, half of a bean. I then removed the other half and let it be. Each one the size of a almond... My hands like totally stunk afterwards... Ill be using gloves next time Oh, and he only lifted his leg. That's all!

You really should use a glove, not only for your sanitary reasons, but also for the horse's, you could be introducing some nasty bacteria and/or accidently nick him with your fingernail. Buy a box of latex gloves and keep them handy, will probably last you a lifetime.

This video is pretty good, although I'm sure some geldings are not that calm:

Lol, I don't have finger nails... unfortunatly I chew mine off Which is pretty bad considering I just stuck my hand up into my horse... Eww!!! Yup, next time I will be using latex gloves! I don't want to ask my parents to get me K-Y jelly though... They would, well, they would think I was... a freak. But yeah, for his sake, and my sake, Il be using gloves next time.

Just to clarify, the bean isn't just the random goop that is up inside the sheath. The bean is actually inside a pouch at the end of the penis. Maybe I shouldn't even have mentioned it, but I will because for years I didn't know where to find the bean.

I used to reach in and clean the smegma, but never actually knew where to find the bean until a friend showed me a couple years ago. So, um, I just thought I would mention that. It's kind of enlightening when you actually realize where it hides. All those years I never knew any better.

I was inspired to clean all 3 of my horses today. The 18 yr old gelding (yuck city), the 16 month old gelding (surprisingly dirty) and the 17 yr old mare (wow, udder smegma is just as nasty as the sheath smegma, who knew!).

I didn't go for the bean on either gelding because neither one dropped. I usually clean sheaths when I think they are grungy and look for the bean when the horse is dropped and relaxed when the opportunity arises. Usually that doesn't happen when I am de-goobering the sheath.

Oh... I didnt know that. So I have to really reach up in their? Cause this big goop was right as you folded the pouch aside, if you stuck your finger in their you could pull it out... >.< Nasty. Is the bean hard? Cause this stuff that I got out was, well, soft... like silly putty... EWW >.<

This site has a pretty good description of the steps involved in doing a thorough sheath cleaning, and is fairly amusing to read as well: http://www.equusite.com/articles/hea...Cleaning.shtml

1.) Check to make sure there are no prospective boyfriends, elderly neighbors, or Brownie troops with a line of sight to the proceedings. Though of course they're probably going to show up unexpectedly ANYWAY once you're in the middle of things. Prepare a good explanation.
