I am pretty sure my 14 year old mare has horse ear mites in her left ear (her right ear is fine). She will not let me touch her ear and it is a challenge to get the bridle on (I had to take the bridle apart the other day when I rode her, and she was fine). I do not see any swelling or any kind of abrasions around the ear.
How do I get the mite medicine in her ear? Her ear must be very sore. She normally will put her head down for me to put the bridle on. She has already broken her lead rope twice by sitting back when I approach the ear. I do not have a stock to put her in. I have tried treats, showing her the bottle, rubbing the bottle around her face and she is fine with all that but the minute I get near the ear, she throws her head or sits back. Any suggestions?
As the performance horse world’s richest indoor event, the NCHA Futurity and the pedigrees of the event’s open finalists reveal a lot about cutting horse breeding trends, and have a substantial impact on future crops of contenders.
The 2011 NCHA Open Futurity, for instance, consisted of 25 finalists, 10 of which (40 percent) were sired by High Brow Cat, including champion Oh Miss Caroline and reserve champion Jewel Bars Cat, as well as three other finalists sired by sons of High Brow Cat.
