3yr olds rear jagged hooves rip into 1yr old

Pretty much what my heading says. My yearling was getting more & more food aggressive towards the new 3 yr old, we just got her 4 days ago, and got soundly kicked with both rear hooves that are majorly jagged! It tore her up! Skinned her just above her hock, cut her on her hip & several places on her butt.
Here is my question, IYO, what is a good way to treat & protect her injuries? I cleaned her with peroxide & betadine so this morning it has a good scab & doesnt look bad. She even held her tail aside while I cleaned her butt up last night.
(I will post pics soon)

Thank you in advance! Kim :)

If possible I would separate them at feeding to avoid more injuries. I use vetricyn with great results the wounds heal very quick and with less scaring.

Never put peroxide on a wound. It will damage the healthy tissue and ****** healing. Betadine flush (1 G water, 2 T salt and enough Betadine to make it look like tea) is the best thing once you get it cleaned out.

My vet told me to clean out the wound with peroxide, then apply straight betadine. Should I seek a different vet?

It's seldom a good idea to put new horses together so soon. Sorry about the injuries.

They've done great. Mystic was the boss when my friends yearling was here so she had a hard lesson to learn. They are eating seperately now but stick together otherwise. If one "disappears" the other is calling to find her. Both have always been with other horses.

I use blue or red kote (available at farm stores), then put some bag balm on it (Also available at farm stores). Its kind of like neosporin and a bandaid in my eyes :) Plus its easy to use, doesn't sting the horse, keeps the scab covered, and keeps flies out, all while healing and protecting the wound. Plus its cheap and easy to apply.

Great! I have bag balm already....I use it on my hands, so some kota is all I need to grab. Thank you! Here are some pics
