I have a donkey that is now 6 yrs. old. Before I got him he was rarely handled. His first farrier appointment was a nightmare(tried to kick her in the head... several times) We have overcome a lot with him and now that he is used to being handled I decided it was time for him to have his sheath cleaned- he has never had it done. I didn't know how he would react, but thanks to the wonderful invention of cheerios( my favorite training tool) he didn't give me ANY problems. However I was unable to get him to er "extend himself" so all I was able to clean was the outside of his sheath and the tip... Any suggestions?

You will probably need to drug him. I usually try to clean my geldings when they are drugged getting there teeth floated, I also try to pull their mane while they are under the influence.

I used to rub the inside of my gelding's thigh with a soft brush. He found it soothing and would let down. I could then clean him with warm water and a soft cloth. Once he got used to the idea, as soon as he would see me with the brush and bucket of water, he would let down to be cleaned.

Try rubbing his umbilicus.

If using a tranquilizer do not use acepromazine!

His umbilicus is in the center of his abdomen on the bottom. You should be able to see it and palpate it. All my horses, mares and stallions, get in the zone when I massage it.
