Horses in the Morning: ‘The Sheath Cleaning Song’

Cleaning out a horse’s junk is one of the least fun aspects of gelding/stallion ownership. Now, because misery loves company, there’s a sing-along to ease your pain.

I do a guest-spot each Monday on Horses in the Morning, a live webcast aired weekdays from 9 to 10:30 a.m. EST. When you combine the weirdness of Horse Nation with the no-holds-barred style of hosts Glenn the Geek and Jamie Jennings, you just never know where our conversation is going to wander — and this past Monday, it veered down a particularly dark and treacherous alleyway: the topic of sheath cleaning.


One thing led to another, which led to Glenn rifling through the HITM archives for a dusty copy of an original song Jamie performed on the show a while back. It’s just too good not to share (sorry, Jamie!), so we at Horse Nation took it upon ourselves to take the thing public.

Presenting, “The Sheath Cleaning Song” (see lyrics/suggested accompanying facial expressions below should you desire to sing along):

How’s it hanging?

So much cleaner.

Aren’t you glad I

washed your wiener?


I admit it’s

kinda creepy

that I had to stick my arm

up in your pee pee.


It was sticky.

It was skunky.

It was icky.

It smelly funky.


It was crusty.

It was cruddy.

When you stuck it out it creaked

like it was rusty.


After half an

hour of toiling

and I’m squirtin’

baby oil in…


You’re as fresh there

as a daisy.

Either this means I love you or else

I’m crazy.

 Well-played, Jamie! If you ever get tired about talking about horses on the radio, perhaps you can take a stab at musical theater… “Sheath Cleaning: The Musical!” anyone?



M’kay, maybe not.

Readers, remember to tune in to Horses in the Morning each day for a light, lively, entertaining look at the horse world and the people in it. Hosted by Glenn the Geek and Jamie Jennings and produced by Jennifer H., the show features entertaining conversation, out of the ordinary guests, numerous regular horse related segments, listener call in, contests, giveaways and more.
