Gelding doesn't drop to pee

I've only had JT for 6 weeks and I have noticed it before, but today it was impossible to miss... He does not drop his - you know - to pee and it goes all over the place. I have never seen a (male) horse not drop before.
Is this something I should worry about?

There is a lady in town who cleans - you know - for a living, I think I will have her come and have a look....

I'd definitely get his sheath cleaned. I've seen some massive stones before and can you imagine how uncomfortable that is.

Does his pee seem off color to you? Too dark? Some geldings just don't drop to pee.

A lot of geldings don't drop to pee.. some drop completely... some drop half way..

Is it really cold wear you are? That could be a factor :o)

But yes its always good to check his sheath and bean. It's not hard to do!!

Is there really a lady that soley makes a living cleaning sheaths? LOL

Why couldn't I have found somebody to do that when I had my gelding? Instead, the barn owners wife came out to hold him and I though she was going to lose her cookies. I told her that day that they really needed to do their miniature donkey. I guess it was probably about a couple of weeks later, I got there to feed and clean stalls, and the male miniature donkey was gone. The owner said that they had decided to just find him a new home since they have the mare and a baby. After the look on her face when I was cleaning them, I think it was a big factor in them getting rid of the male.

LOL poor mini donkey, probably had a really uncomfortable willy!

I am currently procrastinating on cleaning my gelding... He is at my moms bf's and they are definitely non horsey people and there is no barn to hide in lol... I was talking to mom about it and she started cracking up when I said I would have to take him out behind the house so noone thought I was molesting my horse or into zoophilia... gah... geldings...(just to be clear, I have checked it, it isnt that dirty but it could use a cleaning...)

Anyhoo back to the subject, if you are worried, call your vet and describe it to him, he should be able to decide if he needs to come out. Though I must say that some animals just like to pee on themselves, especially males(even gelded ones), it is called steeping and is a passive sexual behavior, something to get his smell around... Instead of peeing everywhere they just pee on themselves and walk around... Wierdos lol

I can tell when my gelding is getting dirty because he smells "cheesy." I can smell it when I groom him and sometimes riding him. I can never tell just by looking because his......you know, always looks clean, not crusty like other geldings I have had. It seems like all his smegma accumulates inside the sheath, not on the outside of the.... wee-wee. So he can look clean, but have alot of gunk up in there.

And I swear, it seems like most horse owners around here never check for beans. Every gelding I have bought has had a huge bean, and when you ask if they have ever been cleaned, you just get a weird look from the former owner.

I also have a neighbor who's horse has a huge bean (I checked because I was riding him for a while and when I got back and unsaddled he was just dangling.) Well, anyway, it was almost the size of a golf ball, too big to get out easily and I told the owner and she just said, "well, he's peeing okay." Ugh, I'm sure he's still got it there.

And now I have a mare, and low-and-behold, the gunk between her teats looks and smells just like the gunk geldings get in their sheaths. Who knew!

The color doesn't seem off, it doesn't smell bad, it just goes all over the place. How do you clean when he doesn't drop?
I've only had him for 6 weeks and he is staring to trust me, but I'm not sure if he trusts me that much...
I'll get the number for the cleaning lady and have her come out, I'm not messing with this.

Lol. I wish I had someone to clean my gelding for me! Probably my least favorite part of owning a gelding.
