I would like to know what is used to wash the stallion and mare before breeding. We are just breeding a few of our own but would like to keep everybody clean and not spread disease.

I have searched for this in the archives but could not get an answer.


Thank You

Water only should be used. It has been shown that the addition of iodine-based cleansers or even soaps, results in a higher incidence of pathogen presence in the long run, which will have a negative impact on fertility as a result of causing infections in mares.

Additionally, the penis should be washed only using one's hand to gently remove smegma with one's fingers in a circular motion in conjunction with pouring copious amounts of water from a mug or container. The use of either cotton or paper towel can result in damage to the skin surface in the form of abrasions, which may then become a suitable haven for pathogens to gain entry.

Thank You for taking the time to answer my question.
I have asked my vet, who lives 70 miles away to come show us proper procedures for this and he has already told me the same thing. Said he had a stallion come in unable to breed he was so sore from continual washing.
I just wanted to make sure I was not missing an important step in disinfecting.

Thanks Again
