I agree!

I am not sure how big a jawbreaker is.



Tymer, what does the article explain 'too often' to be? The term 'too often' is way too vague.

According to the article too often is approximately ever 2 to 3 months. I think this article is a little on the extreme side, because the woman wrote that she never cleans her gelding's sheaths. She said she hosed it off, but she also doesn't even care about the bean. It said that they have the ability to pass them. Uhm...I don't think this horse is passing a jawbreaker, thanks. She was basically saying the practice of giving a full bath with soap and everything to the sheath and penis frequently (2-3 months or so?) can hurt more than you help.

A bit extreme of her to say "just hose it off every half year if its really dirty."

"The wise man thinks he knows nothing.
The fool thinks he knows everything."

I hate articles that are extreme in any direction, and that one seems to be.

I am shocked that PH would publish something like that.

We've only ever done it once a year in the spring and never had problems with beans.
But This horse who knows we've only had him a few months and this didnt build up in a few months

Ok, so, because I really don't know. Are these "beans" located in the sheath? Or do they have to be removed from the tip of the geldings penis inside the urethra? I've heard people talk about them, but don't have a gelding or stallion of my own and have wondered.
