I'm just wondering how often everyone on here cleans their gelding's sheaths? Flash had his done by the vet in february (as I had never done it before and wanted someone to show me) She removed a bean the size of a walnut! She did tell me to check him 4-5 times a year for beans, but not to clean him too often. I cleaned his sheath again in may, and removed another small bean. Today, I decided to check him again as he's been a bit cranky, and his sheath was disgusting! I got about four handfuls of gunk in total, and a lima bean sized bean out of him. No wonder he's been cranky! Is it normal for him to be getting so dirty up there? I don't want to clean him too often, but I also don't want to leave him with a dirty sheath, as it makes him cranky.
How often is too often when it comes to sheath cleaning? It literally took me 40 minutes to get it all out, and that is without him fussing at all.
