if you can't draw it out you have to stick your hand up in there and grab it. It may sound gross but ya kinda get into it XD. If you have warm water coming out of a hose would be best...

I thought I would report that I tried the Excalibur for the first time today on my gelding and I thought it worked GREAT. Much better than baby oil or KY Jelly or anything else I have tried.

It actually allowed the gunk that grows on the walls of his sheath to peel off easily, instead of having to pry it off like I usually have to. I'm sure the horse appreciated it, and I did too!

I also felt it rinsed out cleanly with just a bucket of warm water and a sock.

The only think I didn't like about it, is the Excalibur is the consistency of soft jello. It even rolled off my hands and out of the sheath. It was really hard to get it where it needed to go! I feared I was wasting a lot if it, after loosing several good sized dollops of it, but after all was said and done, I still had over 3/4 of a bottle left. I figure there is a learning curve, and next time I won't loose as much.

So all things considered, the positives outweigh the negatives on the sheath cleaner. When I use this up, I might try a different brand just to see if it is easier to work with. But I do feel the Excalibur worked well.

My guy never drops his penis for cleaning. My only hope of cleaning it, is whatever I can reach when cleaning out the sheath, which isn't much, or after a ride if he drops it, and I clean really quick before he sucks it back up. But his penis stays pretty clean. I really only check it for beans. It's the inside of his sheath, right near the opening, where all the goobers accumulate.

What's funny is I think my 4 1/2 month old colt will be easy to clean. I have tried picking goobers out with my fingers (dry with no cleaner) and he likes it. He gets the funny grooming-lips, like he is grooming another horse, when I pick goobers out of his sheath. What a funny boy! But I'm glad he doesn't mind. That will make life easier when he is older.

MY horse didn't either, I had to go up and coax him to drop it, and for awhile he held it there but he got tired and kept trying to take it back it

The soap I love is like....Coco Castle or somethin like that it has those 2 words +more.

What I do, is I have a small bucket with warm water in it and I put some Excalibur into the bucket of water and swoosh it around until it is foamy. That way, you only need to use a little bit of the product, without wasting it.

Then I dump my sponge in there and swoosh that around until it gets nice and lathered and then I reach on up there and clean away.

You not only want to clean the Penis itself, but don't forget getting way up there and cleaning the walls as well.

No intention of hyjacking here, but I saw this thread and remembered this video I saw a while ago. As weird as it may sound, this "sheath cleaning song" is kinda cute and thought you guys might appreciate it.
