Mm...I am not good at explaining it,but the I taught is to start in the middle of the cannon bone and wrap to the bottom, making sure to make an upside down V on the bottom,then work my way up...
I havent seen anyone start from the top before...

The first time I was shown how to wrap polos over quilted wraps they started from the top. Then I saw an article in Horse Illustrated on how to correctly put on standing wraps for injury support and that's when I found out the correct way was to start from the middle. So that's how I've done it ever since, but it seems when I try to wrap with the polos alone, I end up with this big, bulky....bulge. :P

I thought about buying pony polos, but Thia is a 16+ hand mare with large bones, so wouldn't I end up with not enough to finish the job? But even though mine are the standard polos, it's like I have way extra material by the time I make it to the top of the cannon bone. *sigh* I guess I just ride the short bus when it comes to this. Lol :)
