We've got a mare in at work at the moment, arrived today, just in while her owners move house and have nowhere for her to stay.
Thing is, she's got this odd yellow crusty stuff in one of her ears, I've never really seen anything like it. I've known horses with "mould" in their ears before, but nothing like this. It's yellow and thick (I haven't touched it as I didn't want to make her earshy if it's painful), and comes up in lumps that are about 5mm in diameter and a centimeter long
I was just wondering if anyone knows what this might be and if there's anything we could do to make it more comfortable for her/treat it?
Attaching pictures, and one of her cute patootie little face
