Strange pee question

My gelding doesn't drop his penis when he pees (even when his sheath and penis are SQUEAKY clean) and he pees all over himself. He pees on his stomach and the area in front of his sheath gets all crusty and nasty. His skin in front of his sheath is chapped, crusty, and itchy. Just the fact that he is peeing all over his underside is disgusting enough. Is there anything I can do to get him to pee like a NORMAL horse?

One of my boarders horse has the same issue but they said that there wasn't anything wrong with him. We also went trail riding with another friend and her horse did the same but they said nothing was really wrong with him. I am curious to see what other answers pop up as well!

Sounds to me like he can't drop his penis. And sounds like the funky skin you're describing is urine scalded skin. I don't have personal experience with this, but I have heard about horses having to have surgery to correct them not being able to drop.

The think is he CAN drop. He just doesn't. Maybe he is shy because he isn't well endowed?

I don't know what to tell you then unfortunately, maybe let him know it's ok to be small? Lol

I don't have any advice about him not dropping, but I wonder if covering his belly with petroleum jelly to protect it from the urine scald?

I'd just do a triple check there's no bean. I just cleaned my boy's a few months ago, did it again today, not thinking there would be anything. There was a HUGE bean in there! I bet he's glad I decided to check again But if you're sure it's clean, I'd put ointment on his scalded skin and mention it to a vet when one's out.
