The urethra is the opening at the tip of his penis. Be sure to check it for a bean.

Ok thanks, I know it is at the end, I just wanted to make sure that it is supose to be sticking out when he lets it down. Just a worry wart.

The Eurethra itself shouldn't be sticking out. It's the tube inside of the penis where the fluids travel. You should look up the anatomical structure of them and get to know it before diving in.

Yes there is a "groove" around the urethra where it protrudes slightly, this is where the bean collects, not in the urethra itself.
My horse collects a lot of smegma in his sheath, but not higher up (or lower down, it depends where it is a suppose :P). I've never gotten a bean out of him, some minor pale smegma, but never enough to form a bean.

You can always get your vet or an experienced gelding owner to show you too.

Good luck!

ETA this article has better pictures. The article itself is a bit useless because I haven't found a gelding who has been properly desensitised that will kick when your up in his business. Basic training, it is.
