An 18-hour-old colt was presented for abdominal discomfort, preputial swelling, and frequent posturing to urinate. Examination of the scrotum confirmed 2 testes and no scrotal or inguinal hernia. Transabdominal ultrasound identified a distended bladder and no free fluid in the peritoneal cavity. Inspection of the preputial cavity revealed that the internal lamina of the prepuce was mostly attached to the glans penis. The preputial cavity was lubricated and manual traction was applied to detach the internal lamina of the prepuce from the glans penis. The colt urinated spontaneously 1 hour after the procedure, and the preputial swelling slowly resolved over 7 days.
