Any one ever find 2 beans in their Horses sheath ?

I managed to clean my horses sheath today, there were 2 beans the size of 5 cent coins . It was the most smelliest thing in the world to do, i cant believe i didn't have gloves on. Slip was a really good boy ! Lifted up leg, moved around a bit but and thats about it. My horse was really interested with the smell on my hands... yuck

they can get pretty nasty and crusty, some sooner than others. beans develop in the sheath, and at the end of the penis. be sure to get the shaft clean if the horse will drop for you. I have one ancient horse that loves to get cleaned and will stand for the water hose , and another that will kick your head off for even thinking about cleaning him, and he kicks when doped, Vets just love it.

Last year my poor gelding swelled up and his pouch was hot to the touch. I had already made an appointment to have their teeth floated and sheaths cleaned and just moved the date up.

Poor boy had a HUGE bean - like the size of a big grape and then a smaller one. Poor baby. Hubby is not much on cleaning (read - NEVER) and I am always hosing them out and at least keeping the pouch clean.

Hahahahahaha most of the time without gloves - hey if the opportunity presents itself I don't have time to run get gloves!

I'm so glad I have a mare...

But yes, you can find A LOT of stuff in your horse's sheath.
