Sheath cleaning is a hygienic process occasionally needed by male horses, both geldings and stallions, wherein a caretaker, groom or veterinarian checks the horse's sheath, the pocket of skin that protects the penis of the horse when it is not in use for urination (or, in the case of stallions, breeding). This area may need to be cleaned, starting at a young age after breeding and the birth season, but particularly in geldings. Not only can smegma, a waxy substance that includes dirt and dead skin cells, accumulate, but some geldings (and occasionally, stallions) may also form a "bean", a hardened ball of smegma inside the sheath or even the urethra that, in extreme cases, can interfere with urine flow. Although a gelding retains the same beneficial microorganisms in the sheath as a stalli

  • 陰茎鞘洗浄(いんけいしょうせんじょう、英: Horse sheath cleaning)とは、牡馬・騸馬(去勢された馬)・種牡馬に必要な衛生的な処置である。馬丁や獣医師が時々、排尿や繁殖に用いられていない時に検査する。 特にせん馬では、この部位の洗浄を必要とする。洗浄しないことによって恥垢が蓄積し、恥垢の塊(肉刺)が鞘の内側に形成される。重度の場合、尿道の内側にも形成され排尿を阻害することがある。せん馬は、種牡馬と同じく有益な微生物を鞘内に保有している。せん馬は種牡馬より高い確率で恥垢やその他の破片を蓄積しているように思われているが、実際は稀にせん馬が陰茎を充分に突き出さないことによって恥垢と不純物が皮膚の襞の中に増殖しているからである。 年に2回から3回洗浄することが勧められている。鞘の洗浄は、ゴム手袋をはめて温水と油溶性洗剤と使い捨てタオルを用い洗浄する。

  • 陰茎鞘洗浄(いんけいしょうせんじょう、英: Horse sheath cleaning)とは、牡馬・騸馬(去勢された馬)・種牡馬に必要な衛生的な処置である。馬丁や獣医師が時々、排尿や繁殖に用いられていない時に検査する。 特にせん馬では、この部位の洗浄を必要とする。洗浄しないことによって恥垢が蓄積し、恥垢の塊(肉刺)が鞘の内側に形成される。重度の場合、尿道の内側にも形成され排尿を阻害することがある。せん馬は、種牡馬と同じく有益な微生物を鞘内に保有している。せん馬は種牡馬より高い確率で恥垢やその他の破片を蓄積しているように思われているが、実際は稀にせん馬が陰茎を充分に突き出さないことによって恥垢と不純物が皮膚の襞の中に増殖しているからである。 年に2回から3回洗浄することが勧められている。鞘の洗浄は、ゴム手袋をはめて温水と油溶性洗剤と使い捨てタオルを用い洗浄する。 馬が処置を我慢する訓練を受け敏感に反応しない事が理想であるが、鞘洗浄を嫌がって落ち着かせる必要がある馬もいれば、我慢強い馬もいる。嫌がる馬の場合、少し落ち着かせる事で陰茎が垂れさがり洗浄しやすくなる。また、針の無い大きい注射器かホースから温水を鞘に流し込むことによって、鞘内の汚れが除去しやすくなる。この過程で重要なのは、馬が陰茎を垂らすか馬丁が鞘の内側に手を伸ばして陰茎と亀頭を掴み、陰茎を鞘から優しく引き出し、洗剤を全体に満遍なく塗布することである。肉刺が尿道憩室にも形成することがある。見つけた場合、それも洗浄する必要がある。獣医師が鞘を洗浄することがあるが、これは医療行為ではなく適切な方法を学んでいる者なら誰でも行うことができる。
  • Sheath cleaning is a hygienic process occasionally needed by male horses, both geldings and stallions, wherein a caretaker, groom or veterinarian checks the horse's sheath, the pocket of skin that protects the penis of the horse when it is not in use for urination (or, in the case of stallions, breeding). This area may need to be cleaned, starting at a young age after breeding and the birth season, but particularly in geldings. Not only can smegma, a waxy substance that includes dirt and dead skin cells, accumulate, but some geldings (and occasionally, stallions) may also form a "bean", a hardened ball of smegma inside the sheath or even the urethra that, in extreme cases, can interfere with urine flow. Although a gelding retains the same beneficial microorganisms in the sheath as a stallion, they seem to accumulate smegma and other debris at a higher rate, probably because geldings rarely fully extrude the penis, and thus dirt and smegma build up in the folds of skin. Thus, it is recommended that the sheath be cleaned once or twice a year. Cleaning the sheath is a specialized task requiring a mild cleaner with grease-cutting properties, generally designed specifically for the process, along with warm water and many clean (usually disposable) towels. Rubber gloves for the handler are recommended, as the job is rather smelly and messy. Some horses object to sheath cleaning and require sedation, others will tolerate it if the groom is careful and patient, though light sedation may help the horse "drop" for easier cleaning. Ideally, the horse will be desensitized by careful training to tolerate the procedure. To begin, a gentle stream of warm water is run into the sheath from a hose or a large, needleless syringe. This will loosen and soften some of the material and make it easier to remove. The process requires either that the horse "drop" his penis or that the groom reach up inside of the sheath to pull the penis gently from the sheath by the glans (head) in order to apply cleaner and carefully clean the entire region. The "bean" is often found in the urethral diverticulum, a pocket adjacent to the opening of the urethra, so that area must also be checked. While a veterinarian can clean a sheath, it is not a medical procedure and can be done by any person who learns the proper method.
