Sheath cleaning?
 
where I live it is extremely cold already. Recently my new gelding has been making that whip sound when he trots so I think it's time for his sheath to be cleaned out. Is this something that can wait until it warms up in spring? Or is this something that may be causing him pain and should be done sooner. I also have no clue how to do this. thanks

idk how to post an older thread. but search thru the grooming section there is a ton of info in the thread :)

i dont think weather matters as long as you thoroughly clean it. but check out the older thread everything you want/need to know is there lol

That "whip" sound has nothing to do with a dirty sheath. As far as I know, there's no known ailment associated with that sound, it's just a sound. Unless the horse is straining to pee, which is a sign of a bean, it can wait until the horse is more comfortable in the spring.

Sheath cleaning songs:

To the tune of "If you're happy and you know it"....

If it's hanging and you see it lube your hands
If it's hanging and you see it lube your hands
If it's hanging and you see it
Grab it quick it's time to clean it
If it's hanging and you see it lube your hands.

If it's peely and it's crusty pick it off
If it's peely and it's crusty pick it off
If it's peely and it's crusty
And the smell is kind of musty
If it's peely and it's crusy pick it off

If his weenie has a beanie dig it out
If his weeny has a beanie dig it out
If his weiner has a beaner
Pull it out and he'll be cleaner
If his weenie has a beenie dig it out

Now he's happy and you know it wash your hands
Now he's happy and you know it wash your hands
It's a job that's kind of kinky
And now your hands are really stinky
But he's happy and you know it wash your hands.

Sing it to the tune of "Hello Mother, Hello Father" from camp son

How's it hangin'?
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!!!

Hahaha those are awesome!!!! Not so sure what people would think of me at the barn if I was singing these while dancing around trying to clean my yearlings sheath! LMAO

If he really needs it done ( has some smegma on the outside of his sheath, straining to pee, if he drops you can see how dirty it is and if it's more smegma than penis it might be time to clean) can you do it inside somewhere? If he isn't really bad I would wait for spring if you can - it'll be more comfortable for both of you.

I should've asked this first - has he ever had this done? If not now is a good time to get him used to you bein there, take this opportunity to desinsitised.
