    Ouchies, that poor guy looks like he has something bad going on. Not only the ear, but he looks like he has had some major event happen to his face or head somewhere in his past. Half the side of the head atrophied is not a normal reaction to an infection in the ear.

    Or did I miss a post about his head? Do you know why he is like that or did you buy him that way?

    He sure looks like a sweetheart, poor baby. I hope he gets on the fast track to healing.

    No we bought him that way but have a thought that his ear is the way it is because of it, however it's just a thought. We have no absolute background on him even his age was wrong he also was way more trained then what we were told. He has had something major happen and you can tell he was at some point handled roughly but even so I see him with a bright future. He catches on very quickly and is extremely loving and friendly.

    More pictures tonight for an update completely cleaned up. Had a little bit of whitish pus from the top after removing the crusties but once that was gone it appears that hole is healing shut and the pus was maybe just trapped by the scabby stuff. Bottom hole has some bright yellow stuff but nothing is squeezing out so will probably end up bringing q-tips tomorrow to clean the bottom hole out a bit more. Bright red-pink skin though and swelling is way down.

    Alright guys so the before is nasty we had some horrible winds these past two days and I couldnt get a fly mask and was afraid to open it up with the dirt flying the way it was.So before and then two afters to show both holes and last one is jsut because he still wanted to cuddle and be loved on with my full attention after me having to really work at getting the crusties and stuff off. Several soaked wrags and some coaxing about 40 mins later got them both opened up to see bright red/pink skin.

    Well had to really squeeze his gunk out today. Went to get him a fly mask with ears and the one time I need one our feed store is out so gotta go online now. He was very sensitive today and a bit swollen but we are hoping we got it all out and can continue to see improvement.

    Still had a little pus today but the bump that was enlarged by it before is considerably smaller today and the bottom hole is just bleeding when cleaned no puss so hopefully going in the right direction now. Picking him up a fly mask Saturday when we go to tractor supply. Then some old dirt bike tires for toys for the 3 young ones we have , my trainers 4 and 6 yr old and then my guy who all like to mess with the fence and stuff.

    Twitch him and shave that hairy ear, it will heal loads faster.

    Even if we did he wouldn't stand still he'd end up rearing or hurting himself ,even sedated and twitched he was a handful so fully aware will not go over well. Plus as I said we don't have clippers available to do it with as we've never needed them. If we are twitching him to clean it he was fine but the clippers was a whole new ball game for him.

    I'm sure the vet would have shaved it if it was possible with him. My gelding is the same way. He can be almost falling down sedated and still fight!
