Wiping Ears

Daily grooming to prevent sweat crud and hair loss on horses’ ears

Horse Ear Care


‪It's important to WIPE EARS CLEAN as part of your daily grooming routine. Otherwise, as seen here... sweat builds up, gunk ensues, pores clog and hair falls out. So, use a slightly damp towel or dry brush to always be sure ears are sweat-free, especially after work. That way, instead of hairless patches to speak of being left dirty behind the ears, your horse will have shiny hair and healthy skin.

Lucky Braids All-In-One Horse Shampoo does a great job at keeping skin clean and in great condition, while rinsing super easily. Handy Salve can melt away gunk.
