BANGLE EARS (waste ears). An imperfection in a horse, that may be remedied in the following manner. Take his ears and place them so as you would have them stand, then bind the ears to two little boards so tight that they cannot stir, after which the empty wrinkled skin, at the root of the ears, must be plucked up and cut away with a sharp pair of scissors; stick the two edges of the skin together, and heal up the sore with green ointment.
