A report on Stallion and Penis

Females have corkscrew vaginas with many blind pockets designed for difficult penetration and to prevent becoming pregnant. This reduced the likelihood of fertilization by unwanted aggressors in favor of fitter mates.

A stallion's secondary characteristics include heavier muscling for a given breed than is seen in mares or geldings, often with considerable development along the crest of the neck, as shown in this image.

Even well-trained stallions require firm and consistent handling by experienced individuals.

Aggressive and even violent behavior between stallions not habitually living together or in the presence of mares adds to the challenges in stallion management.

Provided with sufficient space and food with no distractions from mares in estrus, even stallions previously used for breeding may coexist peacefully. Not all individuals are suited for this kind of arrangement, however.
Stallions are capable of achieving a high level of discipline and training.

A bone called the baculum or os penis is present in most mammals but absent in humans, cattle and horses.

- Penis

the penis, within the "penile sheath". Stallions have a vascular penis. When non-erect, it is quite flaccid and contained within the sheath. The retractor penis muscle is relatively underdeveloped. Erection and protrusion take place gradually, by the increasing tumescence of the erectile vascular tissue in the corpus cavernosum penis. When not erect, the penis is housed within the prepuce, 50 cm long and 2.5 to 6 cm in diameter with the distal end 15 to 20 cm. The retractor muscle contracts to retract the penis into the sheath and relaxes to allow the penis to extend from the sheath. When erect, the penis doubles in length and thickness and the glans increases by 3 to 4 times. The urethra opens within the urethral fossa, a small pouch at the distal end of the glans. A structure called the urethral process projects beyond the glans.

An erection (clinically: penile erection or penile tumescence) is a physiological phenomenon in which the penis becomes firm, engorged, and enlarged.

When not erect, a horse's penis is housed within the prepuce, 50 cm long and 2.5 to 6 cm in diameter with the distal end 15 to 20 cm. The retractor muscle contracts to retract the penis into the sheath and relaxes to allow the penis to extend from the sheath.

Almost all mammal penises have foreskins or prepuce, although in non-human cases the foreskin is usually a sheath (sometimes called the preputial sheath, praeputium or penile sheath ) into which the whole penis is retracted.

In stallions, the retractor penis muscle contracts to retract the stallion's penis into the sheath and relaxes to allow the penis to extend from the sheath.

A usual precursor to ejaculation is the sexual arousal of the male, leading to the erection of the penis, though not every arousal nor erection leads to ejaculation.

In stallions, ejaculation is accompanied by a motion of the tail known as "tail flagging".

Retractor muscle of the penis

1 links

In some animals the male penis possesses a muscle enabling retraction into the prepuce.

In stallions, the retractor penis muscle is relatively underdeveloped.

In comparison, the glans of felids is short and spiny, while that of viverrids is smooth and long.

When erect, the glans of a horse's penis increases by 3 to 4 times.
