Curious (;

Hi, im new here and was just wondering about this thing that happens with Geildings Bellies; I've only heard it in geildings and heard alot of crazy stuff about it. When they canter or trot there bellies make a sort of 'groan' sound, its quite common and just want to know whats true (;

I've been told that it's retained water...but I don't know if that's true. It wasn't from a very reliable source. I'm curious to see what others say.
I've also heard it in stallions too.

I know exactly what your talking about. I don't know if it's strictly only in geldings, because I haven't spent much time with stallions, plus, not every gelding I've ridden made the noise. It does have a retained water sound, your stomach can make a similar noise. I was told it was air up in his sheath.

For future reference its spelled "gelding".

Ifs its sort of a ch-ch-ch-ch (in time with trot) but more sort of grunty i've also heard its air up the sheath.

I know the name of it, I've just forgotten it.
Its like Ballen or Gallen?
Sorry I'm just trying to remember what its called.

I'm pretty sure it's called gelding grunt and has something to do with air in their sheath's.... not positive though.

It's the sheath... I've heard studs do it too

Interesting! I've heard that sound for years and never associated it with geldings and their sheaths. Amazing what you can learn on the forum.

My old stallions did that and the geldings too...

Last I've heard they make that noise when its time to clean the sheath,, im not sure lol.

If you mean that "oink oink oink" noise, it's a dirty sheath. I had to clean my horse's out and it stopped that annoying noise

bellies, cleaning, geildings, geildings bellies, groan
