There has got to be a vet or ferrier or sombody that specializes in that...job.

On that thought, who would WANT that job!?!
Hey, you should at least learn how to do it, and do it yourself at least ONCE. Once you know how to do it then you can pay to have it done. That is how I see it.

Some horses REALLY like it. I had to do it on Friday. Not as messed up as you would think. It was really gross, because of how dirty the poor guy was. Made me feel bad for him. You could tell he was one who REALLY liked it done. He had his little lips all pinched out and he had that "Oh yeah, baby. That is the spot." look on his face.

Just remember to use WARM water and not cold out of the faucet water. You dont want him to snatch a hind leg up while your........busy

There is something about riding down the street on a prancing horse that makes you feel like something...even when you aint a thing - Will Rogers

Sheath cleaning is like changing a baby's diaper. You don't want to be doing it, You don't like what you're cleaning up, You don't enjoy wiping baby parts with wipies. Not one bit of it is enjoyable or nice or fun. BUT... It has to be done...... Think of it as just a job. Luckily it only has to be done 1-2 times a year for a horse. WAY better than 40 times a day for a baby!!! ( OK I do realize you are a guy so if you're like my hubby the 1-2 times a year may be the same as a diaper schedule!!! hehehe J/k)

I wouldn't worry about the 5th member...He's just relaxed. My geldings don't let it all hang out unless they are just chillin''s not a sexual manuver because he likes the way your tush looks in the wranglers!!!

Its actually a good sign that he enjoys your company and feels comfortable with you.

Congrats on doing so well with these rescues!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

So much cleaner.
Aren't you glad I
washed your wiener?
I'll admit it's
kinda creepy
that I had to stick my arm up in your pee-pee.

It was sticky.
It was gunky.
It felt icky.
It smelled funky.
It was cruddy,
it was crusty--
when you stuck it out, it creaked like it was rusty.

After half an
hour of toilin'
and of squirtin'
baby oil in,
you're as fresh there
as a daisy.
Either this means I love you or else I'm crazy!!!
LMAO, I fell out of my chair when I read this!!!!!!!
I will have to remember that one next time someone asks what a sheath cleaning is.

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!

Loved Gingerrr's song! The only trouble is, I'll be humming it for days.

Ruby, don't worry about the sheath cleaning. It's not actually that bad - and you can always wear rubber gloves!!

At least you won't have to dive in quick and grab it unceremoniously (but gently), like I have to do with my boy on the rare occasions he lets it all hang out.....

I wonder what she'd charge for a service call to Wisconsin....

It'd be worth it to me!
