When my 16 yr old Appy gelding gets an erect penis it turns about 100 degrees to the right. It used to be normal, pointing towards the front. Tonight it was the first time it seemed to be “ouchy” and very pink when I checked for a bean (which was very small, I clean once a month or so). I don’t know if there is any significance to the rotation. Once he relaxes he can retract just fine and I never noticed any difficulty urinating. The urine is normal in color.

If the horse is having pain you should have your vet out to look. Quite frankly I do not know why this may be happening, perhaps there are adhesions forming between the penis and the sheath from a traumatic episode (?), let us know what the vet says.
