The Deed is Done!

Lacey came over and helped me with Beau. I somehow survived the whole experience! The hairy little pervert seemed to enjoy the cleaning and massaging. He never did "drop", so we had to do a blind extraction of the bean. I will be getting some oral ace for next time to help him relax.



Below are pictures of Mr. Bean, extracted by Mr. Hand. Poor little dude!




(please keep the snickering down to a dull roar, will ya?)

Yay! I'm sure Beau must be feeling tons better! I have no idea what a "normal" sized bean is (yeah, mare owner) but that thing looks likt must be on the large and certinly uncomfortable side! Well done!

Yay well done you and I bet Beau is feeling much relieved after his date with Mr Hand (let's call it Mrs Hand or he might feel awkward).

Congratulations on a yukky job (also mare only owner here) jobbed!!!

Yup, I have a gelding. Sheath cleaning and beaning (frown) is not a subject to dwell on - to quote Something's Gotta Give "Hey, we're not all doctors baby!"

Well, I hope that the sheath cleaning song and websites I sent you earlier helped! Glad you made it thru.. that thing sure looks like it HURT! I'm going to go wash my hands now.... :)

OK being as adult as I can - He liked the process very very much.
ROFL :-))

I tried doing it myself once and for the life of me I couldn't find any beans! I had a friend come over and help and she found one. Now, I find it so much easier to just pay my vet $25 and write the check out.

Wow, that's a pretty good sized bean, no wonder he was swollen! Poor guy, I bet he feels much better. He's lookin great Karen, I'm so glad he found you... by the way, for any of you on here who raise cattle, we had a TINY heifer calf born today, doesn't seem to be premature or a "dummy" calf, perfectly normal and developed, and she weighed in at only 23 pounds!! Check her out on my blog

So has the cleaning helped??

He is still swollen, but I notice that he "dangles" more than he did. I've had to doctor Angel and Squirrel for the last two nights. Naughty girls got in a kicking contest and they both got cut up. Squirrel was on the losing end, though LOVE T-Zone cream!!

Horses will be horses... I had to move my mare to her own corral because she was being such a bully to the other two when they were all turned out togehter, not so much kicking, but biting... big time. T-Zone does work well :o)

Hopefully the swelling goes down soon... he has to be feeling better though!
