A woman labelled as “the sheath queen” makes a living cleaning horse p3nises and charges £25 a pop. Mercedes Doblin, 27, has raked in £5,000 by picking clumps of dried semen known as ‘beans’ from behind the horses’ foreskins.
She says she has cleaned over 200 horse willies since quitting her job as a carer in October.
Mercedes, from Chelmsford, Essex, said: “I don’t actually mind doing it at all, I’m happy that I can make a difference and make a horse happier.”
Buildups of semen, urine, and dirt, can collect into a stone-like clump known as a bean – which can lead to infections and kidney problems.
She once had to remove maggots from a horse p3nise because a group of flies laid their eggs after becoming attracted to the smell.
She removes up to 30 ‘beans’ per day – and came up with the idea after cleaning her own horse’s willy.
She said: “I rummaged around and found one and then my friend suggested I should do it as a living. “My husband thought I was joking and my family think it’s the most disgusting job ever but I enjoy it.”
Mercedes – who sometimes brings daughter Evee Mae, eight, on jobs – uses a special spray and gel to soften up the bean before picking it out with her fingers.
She has been kicked several times – but thankfully has dodged any broken bones so far.
