Lol sheath cleaning can be so gross.... not the actual act but the SMELL. I swear, sheath cleaning liquid stuff is almost worse of a smell than the smegma itself!

What I do is get a really long sock, a clean sponge, a bucket of warm water, and some sheath cleaning solution. Watch the hind legs, sometimes they like it, sometimes they don't. Put the sock on your arm, and dip that arm in the warm water. Pour some sheath cleaning solution on the sock and slowly maneuver towards the area... lol. Start out by cleaning the outer edges and just inside the sheath, testing his limits a little. If he stands nice, reach up farther and try to get all of the gunk off of the sheath walls. Keep going further, rinsing the sock occasionally. If you can get him to drop, perfect.

Its scary how far up there th sheath goes, and how far you can have your arm in there before you actually find the weiner. Big horses can sometimes have an entire arms length!! Its kinda creepy. Lol.

I had a gelding that didnt drop later in life. He had weak hind legs so he didnt even bother to kind of park to pee, he just kind of went. He didnt drop at all, to me I saw that as a sign of his condition worsening.

I've never been able to clean the whole thing myself. I clean the sheeth out when I notice its icky, but for a horse to drop I usually need my vet to sedate them and clean the whole thing.

The problem with getting a sheeth cleaner out is- that they aren't a vet, if you horse needs to be sedated they can't do it.

I don't think you need a special license to sedate a horse... If you effectively know how to sedate the horse and get the job done right I don't see a problem... I have a slew of drugs on hand if I need them for various emergencies... :o) It's amazing what the vets will give you if you know how to hit a vain.

^^Agreed. I have sedation and various horse needles in my little bar fridge. Vets can be amazing when they trust you and know you're not some junkie who's going to shoot up on horse sedatives.

Spend more time grooming his hind legs and belly. Work closer to it all the time and back off when he gets bothered. If he doesn't like it when he is fully awake he still won't like it when he's sedated, he will just not do as much about it.

I knew a girl that would clean her horses sheath every time she gave him grain (every day she rode). Before long every time the horse was fed grain he got an erection. That was good for alot of jokes at the poor womans expense.
