I used to have my own grooming salon, and although I'm not sure if horses can get ear mites or not, they do have a very strong odor, and there will be a lot of brown, stinky, gunky stuff in the ears. They can't be seen to the naked eye. I never had much luck with commercial remedies. I do know campho phenique works, and also ivermectin, although I wouldn't know the dosage for horses. I would clean the ears first with alcohol on a cotton ball, I love the green alcohol, and find it very soothing, and also put some ivermectin around the ears and where you see the bleeding. If there is no strong odor, it is not ear mites.
