I pay the vet to do it, although one of the horses doesn't mind his sheath cleaned, but whatever, I have the cash and I don't want the job.

lol I'm pretty sure the BF is going to come up with some cash to avoid it in the future.

Thanks for the laughs, all! I have never had to do it... seems like I always end up with mares.

I have never owned a mare, but I have heard with poor conformation their private cleaning can be even more of a nightmare than that of a gelding!

Pretty sure it's an experience he'll never forget, even if he'd like too.

Catrina - every mare I have owned, or worked with has loved, just LOVED being cleaned. Go figure -- women like the attention

Okay, that right there is one reason I should be glad to not be a horse owner. For me, it's "Hey, this would be a good day for a visit to the park." Or "Hmm, the fridge is getting low again. Good day to do some grocery shopping."

But that....that...never usually crosses my mind. Now if I had a horse, and it was a gelding...I suppose it would have to. But in the mean time, today's just a good day for me to finish getting ready to go to work, since I have to anyway.

When will you be horse shopping

when i had my gelding i had no issue with sheath cleaning and for the most part, he didn't either.

but i'll never forget the day i had another boarder just about having a hernia from laughing when i said to my gelding 'come on silly billy, don't be sucking back in that willy'. ;)
