Any ideas as to how to get them relaxed? My gelding retracts into a point of no return, I can clean his sheath and when he isn't paying attention to me gently grab his thing and check/remove a bean but once I let go, that's it. I can't seem to find it up in there......
It's kind of trial and error, some geldings will drop when you groom them, some when you itch a certain spot, some never drop without sedation, it just depends.
I clean the entire thing only as often as needed, doing it too often can cause irritation.
