Ill start attempting to use fly masks again, I have I believe 4 different kinds as my other gelding gets sunburn, and he seems to get majority off about 50% of the time, maybe if I switch which one he is wearing he wont get them off so quickly. Thank you!

Comparing it to the size of your thumbnail, it looks pretty big.

It's hard to tell exactly but that doesn't look like what Joker had in his ear. It's been ten years so my memory may not be as clear but I think Joker's were much smaller and smoother.

I would play it safe and let the vet give a diagnosis :)

Its definitely larger in size than Ive seen any pics of online, probably the size of a ping pong ball. Having the vet come out next week, Im super curious as to what they will say it is!

What Joker had was not any bigger than the eraser on a pencil.

Please let us know what the diagnosis is:)

Also, are you far enough inland to not have to worry about Hurricane Irma when it starts moving up the coast? Jose is coming along behind Irma, Katia appears to be headed for Central Mexico, and it's only September.

That is pretty big. My guy's were small and numerous, each one probably half a centimetre.

I've got a gelding with aural plaques in both ears that when I got him looked like cauliflower growing out of his ears. He was extremely head shy. I tried Aldara without much success. It was expensive and came in small packets that weren't enough to cover the extensive plaques. Maybe if it came in quart jars it would have worked better for me. What I did find was Dermafas veterinary creme which I apply once a week. The aural plaques haven't gone away but it greatly reduced their size. The gelding is a lot less head shy now. I don't know if his ears feel better or he's gotten used to me messing with his ears once a week for the last 5 years.

That was about the size my mare had in her ears. Looked the same. Your vet can tell you for sure.

My OTTB had them really bad when I purchased her. They literally looked like cauliflower growing out of her ears. My vet pulled them out after she floated her teeth while she was still sedated. ICK!

She was always fairly head/ear shy about them (you could touch the outside of her ears but you were NOT touching inside) & it was slightly worse after pulling them out. It was to the point where I could never put salve or swat in them. I just always made sure she had a fly mask with ears & the BO understood she always needed to be turned out with one (even if the other horses weren't). We got some small plaque regrowth - just the kind you could kinda scrape with your nails, but nothing that bad again.
