there is only one answer for that : moulting
Some people do...they think it makes the horse look fancier. It is not really a matter of should you/shouldn't you. It is really a matter of personal preference. Many people …that show their horses trim the hair in the ears to make them look more groomed, but for an animal that is not being shown, it is not necessary. The hair in the ears is actually a filter of sorts that keeps things (bugs, dirt, etc.) from entering the ear canal. Just like the hair in our noses, basically.
To protect the inside of the ears from dust and dirt.
they are a part of a cell called ciliated cells the hairs are called cilia
Hair grows in the ear to collect the dirt that might enter it so that no infections get in.
To keep dirt out of them, the same as all mammals do; including humans.
Because it keeps your ears warm.
It traps dust, dirt and unwanted particles from penetrating further into the ear canal.
25cm long and still growing, it belongs to Indian grocer Radhakant Baijpai and he has no intention of trimming it, no matter what his wife says. Officially recognised by Guinn…ess in 2003 as having the longest ear hair in the world. 13.2cm was the record he broke. Considered by Mr Radhakant, 58, to be symbol of luck and prosperity, his ear-hair has been growing since he was 18 and has never been cut.
The part of the inner ear, called the cochlea, that is shaped like a snail. It has hair cells inside that vibrate and process the different sounds that you hear. Then sends it… to the brain. There are also hair-like cells in the Vestibular System in your ear (the part with multiple circular tubes at the other end of the inner ear from the cochlea). These function to allow us to balance ourselves and orient ourselves in our personal space. The tiny "hairs" are moved in a gel-like liquid when the liquid is moved or sloshed by changes in head position. Our brain determines whether we are lying, standing, bending, moving or holding still, etc. by the signals sent to the brain by the hairs in this part of the ear. See more about the Vestibular System in the related question below. And a more obvious answer might be the body hair on the external ear that has a function of helping to trap and prevent foreign material from entering the ear. Back when we had more hair covering more of our bodies as we evolved, this body hair on our ears also had the function of protecting us from the cold. The external ear has a lower blood supply due to the amount of cartilage and due to its more peripheral position in our bodies which allows it to get overly cold and even frost bitten, like tips of fingers and toes, when in extreme cold temperatures. So the hair on the outer ear once had two functions.
They bend and weave when sound waves hit them and then transmit signals to the brain where it comprehends sound and translates it. See also the related question below about t…he ear "hair" in your Vestibular System (balance center) and the body hair of the external ear.
There is hair on a cats ear because they need hair to keep dust, dirt, bugs and so on, out of the ear. When a cat stops scratching, it means that the mites have been kil…led. if your cat is scratching its ear, I recommend taking it to your local vet. It only takes one mite to start the whole itching frenzy again, so I recommend NOT cutting them. if you do so, i would talk to a Vet tech. Hope I helped!
If you have big ears, you wear your hair any way you like. Big ears are nothing to be ashamed of & it's your hair. However, if you truly are that worried about their appea…rance, you can simply leave your hair down so it covers them.
