This is the bean I got out of my mom's gelding, as much as I agree with the above article,I do think beans this large could cause an issue, I noticed before I cleaned it out he urinated in more of a spray then a stream.

Ugh, they are so gross! I have never found one any bigger than a super small pea until recently, it was the size of a quarter shaped like an egg with the consistency of wax. Yuck!

Well I wish I knew what I was doing. My horse seems to look like he is having problems peeing, he pees, but doesnt seem like alot of volume. Then he tries again it seems like more frequently than normal. I tried twice. I put him in trailer, with cut gate closed. I really didnt feel anything and think I was doing it right , did get inside the urethat and the area around it felt nothing. But I don't have any feeling in my fingertips, farrier said sheeth looked swollen and I hadnt said anything about it. I had hoped to wait till spring when his shots were do, but ehh, maybe something we can nip in the bud. Any way on the way to vet this afternoon as per our agreement.
She doesnt work on diesel engines, generators or marine machinery. I don't do vet work.

There's no context, so I'm not sure how big it is, but yikes, that must have been uncomfortable, and a relief to get out!
