    An hour really isn't bad. We had a potential horse come through my barn. He was filthy and up there in age. After giving him a batadine bath I did his sheet. The tip of his penis was hard as a rock!!! The bean was so large I couldn't take it out in one piece. We pulled out 2 goldfish (the snack) sized pieces and another small piece. Idk how he was urinating, honestly. It was really, really sad!!

    Are you sure your reaching back far enough? I'm usually elbow deep, at least.There are two "cavities". Even if you don't clean his sheath at least get the bean out!

    Over an hour is bad when he is charging me by the mile to come and just sedate a horse. If this was a huge emergency I wouldn't hesitate but as of now, he is still in great health otherwise. I am going to call the vet again in the morning and do some yelling. If that doesn't get me anywhere then ill give the other a call and see what they say.
