I am just wondering, do horses get ear infections? (I assume they do since they have ears!). My gelding has been throwing his head around a lot- not just tossing but throwing it in the air and swinging it as if something is bothering him. He does have a skin condition on his face like sweet itch that I am treating, but he does this a lot and did it even before the skin condition showed up. He tries to rub his ears on people too, and I have tried to discourage it but if it is a condition or something causing him discomfort I want to treat it rather than punish the behavior.
