Ok so, the reason for this slightly strange thread is because I just got done cleaning 2 of my many 'boys' sheath's, and was wondering how you go about either teaching, or getting a horse to relax enough to 'flop it out' so you can clean the actual willy easier and of course, get in a good position to search for the bean and clean that area. Now I have your typical range of boys, ranging from my 19 year old retired TB where you need life insurance, full padded body suit and to stay at his shoulder to try to clean his sheath, to my young stallion where I'll literally sit on a bucket right at his flank and go to town and he won't move a muscle. I think he would hang it out, but he's being taught not to hang it out while I'm around him as a sign of respect and control with him being a stallion, so that's probably hard... but I'm not too concerned with him as I often can catch him with it out in his stable/yard and clean him. The only problem is, getting them to hang it out. I've only got one horse who does that, and I have to be honest - I'm actually concerned about my mental welfare with him when I clean his sheath... he enjoys it a little... too much (let's not go there...) *coughs* anyway... any suggestions? I imagine the girls from Clean as a Whistle will have some expirenced tips?
