Might get a vet to look at this as he could have infection, or cancer of the penis too, as I have seen this happen.

But vet needs to be called and a thorough exam done.

I had a gelding like this, he was always much gunkier than any of the other geldings I had previously owned. It wasn't as much of an issue in the summer when I could just rinse him out after each ride (water only!) but he was requiring a deep cleaning every other month or so with touch ups in-between.

I did have the vet take a look at things, they couldn't find any reason other than the fact that he was very "affectionate" in the sense that when grooming/ tacking etc he would become excited and just "hung out" quite a bit. The conclusion was he was just a dirty guy who needed extra cleaning :)

I feel your pain! Once you have ruled out any medical issues, baby oil and wipes are a great option for inbetween cleanings. Also, I ended up prefering Ivory liquid soap to Excalibur- not only is it less expensive but it rinses cleaner and does not leave a residue.

My gelding takes great pride in being a PIG. The vet has literally removed hay, large shavings and god only knows what else...it's GROSS!

Not only is my guy a pig, he also firmly believes that he should be allowed to wallow in his piggishness and even when deeply sedated still tries to take out the poor Vet who has to clean him out.

The Vet cleans him out probably 4x a year? Whenever he comes to the barn for anything, I'll have him sedate and clean him out.
