Ya'll know what I'm talking about? That froggy noise that some geldings make when they trot? It comes from their sheath area? Anyway, I was wondering what caused it, and if its normal. Thanks in advance!

Yep one of the girls I take lessons with sometimes has a horse that makes that noise, it's quite humorous to listen to.

That noise is coming from their sheath? I always thought it was some sort of gut noise. I could have sworn my mare makes that same noise from time to time, but I'm getting old and senile, so maybe not... EWWW!

What? Their SHEATH does that?! I always thought it was a gut sound too! Then someone told me it was air they were breathing in and it was coming out their butt. :shock: I was young, guys...

How on earth does the sheath go about making that noise?

Yes, it's air caught in the sheath. Stallions do it too but geldings seem to do it more, for some reason.

Daughter's stallion is really loud about it. I never heard DJ make that noise. But I could have SWORN Dancer did - and she's a mare... my mind is totally blown guys!
