I realize this thread is from June, but I live in NE Florida and my mare has rubbed her ears absolutely raw. It started just after I clipped them out for a show about a month ago now. Normally I never clip out ears, hair is there for a reason, but I was new in my barn and didn’t want to press the rules. I use Aloe and E baby wipes to clean in and out of ears (one wipe for each side) and luckily my girl is a saint for it. I have found MTG works best to help with the itching, but she still super rubs her ears at the base, even with her mask on. Did you find that the ointment mixture drsgdiva suggested worked well? If so, I think I’d like to give it a shot.
