Hey thanks for the article. It was very informative; however, I perform the recommended steps and still wasn't able to get the "bean" out. It seems to be imbedded there. My horse, Willy, also has a little pink bubble on the end of his penis which I'm not sure is from infection or if it's supposed to be there. Anyways, when he acted like it was hurting him, I backed off thinking that it is maybe a sore and called the vet. who is coming next Wednesday to get it out. I will have to learn how to get it out for future cleanings, but hopefully it won't be stuck in so bad. It seemed like a chuck of cement :roll: Thanks again!
