Tnk you so much! She's generally very good about her ground manners. Not a mean bone in her body though she has a need for speed. She's going to her first drill meeting friday so we will see how it goes!!

Me too! We had a mare that had ticks in her ears when we bought her. No telling how long they were in there. It was 8 years ago and she's still earshy! Im glad I decided to go ahead and get her checked before it turned into a problem!!

Thats the reason i started this thread. I hate to dip into my emergency fund unless need be and i was thinking MAYBE there was something else that i could treat at home first but the more responses i got the more i realized her hurting wasnt worth 100$ to get her sound again.

She let me mess with her ears this morning. Not exactally grab em as she's never let me do that but i was rubbing right behind them and she didnt care so i moved my hand to her poll and used my pinky and thumb to rub on her ears slightly and i dont even think she noticed =)

Glad you got it resolved so quickly. A flymask with ears will not keep ticks out tho it may help a bit. Ticks crawl to the most can't get me places... A good way to keep them as well as those nasty little flies that will make them act the same way is to spray a bit of bug killer(horsey kind) on your finger or a rag and swipe in the ear gently. I have even had to sneak a spray in when they wouldn't let me touch..

Glad to hear your mare is doing better. My boy did the same thing flip out when I tried to put the bridle on and he also had ticks in his ears one i got them out he was fine. I to though t about a fly mask with ears but quickly found rubbing petroleum jelly in his ears worked much better.

Talking to your horse is sometimes all the therapy you need.
