    I was checking Roman's ears a few days ago and noticed these fly like things hanging out there. They flew away but would keep coming back and in this picture you can see a bit of blood. I looked at them again recently and it kind of looks like...I don't know. I doubt this is it but as an...
  2. Horse Health
    Since buying three ponies back in December I have had to treat all three for lice which I am thinking originated with the mare. Now we are dealing with an overnight hatred of having their ears touched. I am wondering if it is ticks but are there other things that it might be?
  3. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    Hello! Growing up I had pasture ponies that I would ride mostly bareback but some saddle. They were always low maintenance therefor I don't have a lot of knowledge about more advanced care. We recently purchased three ponies for my daughters for Christmas, a mare, her 2yo colt, and a 2yo colt...

    My horse pins his ears. When I bought him he was really bad about it and would kick and bite really bad too. He wasn't having problems for about 9 months but the last few weeks he has been pinning his ears again. Its always at other horses. I am on a drill team (and quitting isn't an option...
  5. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Okay, I know this may be a stupid question, but is there a way to keep a fly bonnet on a horse without a bridle or halter or is it only used that way for riding? I was going to get one to put on my horse when he's eating because he hates the flys on his ears and I don't want to use a fly mask...

    Hey guys, I just noticed this evening that one of my mares has gone a little head shy. I touched the top of her head/base of her ears this evening for a fuss and she went all head shy (like what horses known to be head shy do - move head higher, shake it Etc). She's never been head shy...
  7. Horse Training
    Everytime I am riding my horse he always has both of his ears tipped back at me. Not pinned but always facing me unless there is something in the forest. And when i cue him he flicks his ears back farther (not pins) and when we canter he also has his ears back like racehorses do when running. I...

  12. Horse Grooming
    I'm curious about something. For people with horses who's ears hate to clipped, how do you do it? I always see people sedating them, using twitches, twisting the other ear, but isn't there a better way? Does anyone know a way without pain, fear, or drousiness?
