LOL, ok, well, I think MTG is an excellent product, been around for a whole lotta years. I use surgical gloves when I put it on my horses because of the sulfur in it. Once that gets on my skin I can smell it for days, I don't care what I wash with. And if your hand gets under your nose at night....you think you went to Hades......blehhhhhh! If your horse has mites (rubbing tail) it will kill them and it also encourages hair growth.
When I do clip ears, I put a soft paper towel, foam ear plugs or something like that to cut the sound. If he's never had his ears done he may fight like he's fighting for his life, you might need a twitch or lip chain to get him to stand still. And since you're taking away his natural defenses then you either need to be sure you spray his ears or put some roll on fly spray on them to keep him from getting all bit up and ear plaques. I like to use Wahl cordless clippers to start and finish with a Wahl pocket trimmer for the tight spaces.
