Taking Care of Horses: Cleaning Ears

In this video I talk about cleaning the ears of a horse and some things to think about.

When it comes to the ears of a horse, you may find some horses that have no problem with them being touched and like it, some that are really afraid and maybe some in between that may not like it but will tolerate it. Whenever working with the ears you really have to think about being as soft and gentle as possible and watch the horse to see how they feel.

Cleaning the ears is an important part of horse grooming but doesn’t need to be done everyday. What we’re thinking of doing is just cleaning out extra dirt and dust to reset the wax that lives in there naturally.
