Glad no one got hurt!

Pretty gentle gelding. We usually do the de-beaning while they are dropped while getting teeth floated. He was getting saddled on a warm sunny day and the opportunity presented itself. A quick flip and pop.

I know darn near nothing about horses. This, and Google fu provided some interesting reading. How often does this become a problem, and can you ever address this with an unsedated stallion.


Clinging to our guns and God.....Yeah an Obama quote, but it fits.

Dogs and kids, they are worth the cost.

sometimes you gotta do the math.

.

Depends on the stallion I guess. I have two mules. One you can put you hand up inside his sheath and there is no reaction. The other will plant a foot on top your head before you can blink an eye if you even touch his sheath.

Like I posted above, this is usually taken care of when teeth are floated. the horses are anesthetized for that.

I think horses handled a lot will allow some of the tender areas to be touched. For this gelding, I was quick and he appreciated the speed with which I accomplished the task. wink

Funny story about that, I was breaking a young mule to give his feet and his first trimming.I got the front foot picked up and WHAM. Something hit me in the head. . I picked up the foot and Wham, I got hit again.The mule was rocking over on two legs and kicking me with the back foot as I had the front up.

Same mule years later. I had put new shoes on him and I guess the flies were bothering him because he had kicked up to his belly and the sheath too. It was all swelled up.

I didn't know the reason right off and I reached under to touch it. Must have hurt because the mule kicked me in the knee.I was stupid enough to touch it again, trying to find out what was wrong. The first was kick was a love tap compared to the second.That knee still gives me fits today and that was30+ years ago.I have always been a slow learner.

Maybe catcher's gear is in order!

No-see-ums will cause sheath and belly swelling on our horses.
