Do horses get warts?

What we mean by "warts" on a horse is small growths caused by the papilloma virus. They're a "childhood" complaint in horses, and generally go away on their own in six to nine months. However, the same virus can cause aural plaques in adult horses.

Warts are generally not treated unless they cause the horse irritation or interfere with tack.
