Lube up those arms, it's time to go elbow deep in sheaths
I did Red Man for the second time in his life today, he did very well and calmed down about it pretty quick. No kicking, only fidgeting. I couldn't get his man bit really squeaky clean, but I got all three beans out and the outer chamber of his sheath his smegma free!
Loki was the same as always, a little "Whoa what are you doing!" at first, then pretty much just dozed off. I got another two BIG ones out of him, and got the whole deal pretty clean. Only lifted a leg once, then decided to step forward instead of trying to kick.
Divo is a whole different story :( He's five years old (stud up until four in a half or so) and I don't think has never gotten cleaned. He's stopped dropping to pee and has been peeing inside his outer sheath chamber, as I saw today. Not good! He has three BIG beans again, even though I cleaned him last August/September. I only managed to get one, did get some vasaline in the outer sheath (I lube heavily up to the elbow).
Once he figured out he couldn't kick with the right foot, he started kicking with his left. You can't even touch the outside without him kicking, poor boy is so nervous I'm going to go after those beans again.
Still same old sweetheart Divo, just with a tender sheath. I'm going to have the vet come out as soon as possible to pull coggins on Red and sedate him so he can be safely cleaned. Rather have a groggy pony then a kicking one!
Anyone else do their Yearly Gelding Maintenance yet?
