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!!
That's 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 don't even think she noticed =)
