    Dh is hard at work putting up horse fence. he asked me if I could replace the sod he had lifted around the fence posts. he ahd asked me to do this before, and i obliged, but didn't do it good enough for him... (ahem) . He asked me to do it again today, and i politely told him that I wouldn't do it right anyways. He goes on a rant about having to do all this work himself--yeah right!!! (is that why I have bisters?)

    I went on to tell him that I had to massage a rubber egg out of a hen today.

    He says--okay--I'll do this if you never ask me to do THAT or clean the horses sheaths.

    Lol....too funny!!

    I told my hubby what needed to be done to our horses' sheaths, and I thought he would pass out!

    Oh, BTW, I never "pull my weight" around here. All I do is go to school, work, cook, laundry and clean, especially after all the animals. So I don't do "my job" in the yard, weeding, mowing, etc. lmao

    I googled "horses sheaths" and found what I think is the answer to why amystours's SO had such a pale reaction to the job.

    What I wonder is about wild horses and wild animals of the horse like family... who don't have a human to clean them up for them. What happens then?

    tx_dane_mom: dirt and gunk builds up in between the horses penis and the sheath, you have to pretty much pull out the penis and clean it. This is usually easy because boy horsies just loooove hanging their junk all around as if everyone wants to see it XD But my first horse was a very "polite" appaloosa who would have none of that! The only times I could ever clean his sheath was when he was sedated and didn't notice, so his only got cleaned when he had to get his teeth worked on, ect. Oh, fun times [​IMG]

    silkiechicken: THey can live without it being cleaned. The reason we do it is because it can get uncomfortable, and you don't want to ride a horse that isn't comfortable, they get cranky. [​IMG] It'd be sort of like clumps of dirt up your..... nevermind. [​IMG]

    * My DH gets annoyed if I expect him to do much of ANYTHING other than going to work to get a paycheck. He DOES walk 'MY' dog once a day, take out trash and recyc once a week, mow the lawn once a month and fold the occasional load of laundry--badly!!!

    Quote:There's that, and then there is the sound that accompanies a horse when his sheath is gunky--and its nott he clippity clop of horses running on pavement. On a side note, one of my horses (young and not too good at lifting hs feet for cleaning--all I have to do is grab his penis and his hoof is in my hand.
