We have a super sweet 26 year old QH named sunny. She is the best horse we have. We use her on new riders and for thereputic riding along with the horse show stuff that I do on her. She has one roblem though. She will not, under any circumstances, let you touch her ears. It's a trick to get a head stall on her without her flinching or jerking her head away. We have to use a twitch to shave her ears and we can't put swat in her ears to protect from gnats. We haven't done anything to make her ear shy and they can't be sore because she itches and rubs her head and ears on the other horses and on you like any other horse does. Anyone know what is causing this?
This is a pic of Sunny. This was taken early spring so she isn't normally this shaggy.
