    Interesting pee question - Took pictures

    My gelding pees all over his stomach. Any one else's horses do this? His sheath is clean and he has zero problems with his "equipment", but when he pees, he puts it right up underneath himself, and then, as a result pees all over his stomach. He has no issues walking around all loose and dangly, his peeing, is just, gross however lol. He's a pinto, who's stomach and sides are white unfortunately, and this just stains them instantly.

    It's especially bad in the winter because it all freezes in his coat. I have to try and curry crusty pee icicles off of him. It's too cold to bathe, but I've tried steam soaking them out when they get especially bad...doesn't make much of a dent it in though. It's awful because he is extremely ticklish and thin skinned, and trying to get all these crusties off of him makes him so uncomfortable. I take the curry to him and the faces he makes you'd swear I was trying to murder him.

    I've thought about just shaving his underbelly, but it's a tad too late to do that without effecting his summer coat and keeping a nice appearance for shows. Sometimes he manages to shoot it all up at his elbows and it runs down his front legs and freezes...it's mind boggling sometimes what he can manage to "hit". My honest opinion, since I know it's not a cleanliness/medical issue with his sheath, is that he's just lazy and gross lol. It's awful come spring with the warmer temperatures because he "thaws" and you can smell that sharp urine ammonia smell a mile away. Anyone elses horses like this? haha Any tips on getting an entire winter of pee stain out of a nice white coat? I've hit it with everything lol...bluing, shout, spray n' wash, oxy clean, baby powder pastes, cowboy magic, the zillion different types of whitening shampoos....nothing works

    Have you tried simple Baking Soda & Ivory Dish soap? mixed together with a smidge of water.
    People say riding isn't a sport...Well you see, the 'ball' I play with has a mind of its own.

    I've been Goosed..and I LIKED it!

    are you sure he doesnt have a uninary tract infection or beans?
    Its highly unusual for a horse to want to pee on him self.. I wouldnt shave it , because pee can cause a horrible sore and get infected. I had a mare that had a urinary tract infection and it got so bad -- I have pictures somewhere.......

    He's been doing this forever, I've had the vet check him twice. All clear. My first thought every time is something must be wrong. But it isn't. I mean seriously, what horse pees on themselves? lol .... but he does. That's why I'm just totally stumped. Maybe I can saran-wrap him? haha

    I'll take pictures tomorrow, his front leg is especially lovely at the moment

    Been there

    My gelding did the same thing. I think I posted a year or so ago about it...I can't remember. And guess what color he is....yupppers.....a big flea bitten gray!! No medical issues, no beans, no infection, no crusties on the sheath...clean as a whistle. Does it all year long...never, ever drops to whizz. He will walk around with it dangling but to pee...somebody might be watching . I have two words for you BODY-CLIP. He is 100% cleaner due to having much less fur.

    I did the mild soap every now and again...the baking soda and the warm cloths. There is not too much you can do in the winter 'cept curry the heck out of it.

    Make sure that you do exhaust all other possibilities...just to be on the safe side.

    Too bad you can't put up a "splash guard" in front of his unit to keep it from hitting his belly and front legs......
