Dusty doesnt really like it when mum cleans his, he cow kicks sometimes but he puts up with it, grudgingly. Smarty, on the other hand, loves it!! His top lips stretchs out and everything lol its funny watching his facial expressions

I just have someone else do it. I can clean around it when I bathe and everything but I let someone else go for the bean. My Hank is the calmest thing. Nothing bothers him. I tried to take his bean out and he tried to kick me so I leave it for when we have his teeth done. Our dentist does it for like 10 bucks which to me totally worth it. Even sedated he still tries to kick. Of course we did pull a bean out the size of a large peach pit. I would probably try to kick me too LOL.

I had never cleaned on before I got my gelding. I had done some reading and since I have a gently gelding, I said let's try. So for a few days, I rubbed between his legs- which he loves. I began to move my rub down. The first time I touched him, he tucked his leg up underneath him- as to say he what are you doing? The look he gave me was too funny. I just kept my hand there until he knew I was no threat. One day after a long brisk ride, we came back and he was resting. That was when I got a bucket of warm water and rubbed him down. He dropped his head as to say ah, that feels much better. Now, I can rub him down to clean it off- dry, I check him on a regular basis to see if he is dirty, and can easily clean him, even if there is no workout. Be safe, slow and confident.

Gee I opened this thread hoping there WOULD be directions on how to do it as I just bought a gelding and never have had any experience cleaning them down there, but heard you had to do it. Only answer I get from 'horse people' is 'yeah you need to clean them down there....eww' with a shudder. After reading the 'directions' on how to do it...yeah, I think I will be paying someone else to!

I think it has to be the most embarrassing part of horse ownership. I have no problem with it besides the fact that Tom enjoys it a little too much, lie someone said, he practically needs a cigarette afterward lmbo. Mom freaked out the first time I cleaned Moonie's, thought I was funny in the head.

Then when I cleaned Tom's a few weeks ago, she flipped again cause I had Gracie with me... She said she is too young to know about that, I think it is better she know what I am doing and why I am doing it than to have to have someone else tell her. I figure she wants a horse of her own, she might as well learn now, besides 7 is pre sex thinking anyway, better to learn about it now than after she starts thinking it is perverted.

My horse lets me touch around it and just wipe his wee wee off. I can't get it out of the sheath lol, but I let the vet do the bean removal when he goes in every year.

When I first read the description on how to remove the bean, I started thinking I'd rather just get a mare . I've had about 8 months of house hunting to get me better used to the idea, and I think I might even be able to handle it myself now . Though a friend of mine thinks it's hilarious that I even think it's a big deal.

A great step by step guide is at http://www.equusite.com/articles/hea...Cleaning.shtml. Scroll down to Part 2 The Cleaning Process... and get ready for a laugh (and probably a shudder or two if you've never thought very much about the process before ).

Ha! You haven't lived until you have your arm up your horse's sheath and you realize the FedEx man is standing there wanting you to sign for a package with his eyes bugging out of his head.
