I brought home an older gelding...late 20s...and he is in desperate need of a sheath cleaning. With my other geldings I can just either catch him hanging out and he will let me clean him or shove my hand up in there and grab him and he will let me slowly pull him out to clean him.
This guy wont let me clean his sheath at all. He will let me shove my hand up in there but he sucks himself so far up inside that I can't get to him. He is in such bad need of cleaning its ridiculous. I caught him hanging out one day and STUPIDLY grabbed a dry cloth, wrapped it around him and tried to wipe some of the gunk off. Doing it dry made him bleed and I had to give him plenty of time for that to heal up.
Is there anything I can get at the farm store to relax him enough to drop out? I have asked my vet and he said I have to "take care of it on my own". Uhg.
Wondering if Show Calm or Quietex might relax him enough to drop?
