Check out this thread: cleaning the sheath

Seems like it's the season

I used Excalibur, a warm bucket of water, some rags, and a syringe (for rinsing as I don't have warm water in the barn). Just take it slow and pay attention to your horse.

yeah, me too, ive saved it!

Now, we dont seem to have 'Excalibur' in the UK but we do have these two
Robinsons - Buy Equestrian Supplies, Horse Tack, Clothing and more at Robinsons
which one? the 'Sheather Cleanser' looks more apealing to me, it sounds gentler but its cheaper, maybe not as good? idk

Hrm... I have no idea, but I like the Horsewise Easy Sheath Cleaner it has tea tree oil (which Excalibur has).

Whenever Nelson hangs out, I always grab his WeyWey and check for beans in his creases to ensure that nothing is going to cause issues.

Cleaning his sheath, I just get a bucket, squrit some Excalibur in there and get some warm water into it and make it sudsy.

I get a sponge and away I go. Make sure you get up there!

Try to clean the WeyWey too if you can :)

Weeeee, fun.

Super simple... Add this on to your Spring / Fall Shots vet visit! It cost me an extra $30 to have Danny's sheath cleaned when he got his shots. WELL worth the money!!!
