Natisha, yes its common for horses to be turned out together. Theres a mare lot, gelding lot and "training" lot. My mare was in the mare lot due to the training lot being more dominant and my mare being very low in pecking orders.

Has anyone iced a hock before? If so howd you wrap it for the ice to stay put? Good idea or bad idea?

I haven't done it, but what if you figure-8 wrapped an ice pack on her hock using vetwrap? With the "points" of the "8" above and below the hock joint?

Yes, figure 8 it. Here's how I wrapped my pet bull. Lol He stands better than our horses, and he was untied. Not my best wrapping job, but what do you expect when wrapping a bull.





Here's a guide on bandaging:

Thats one big a$$ pet bull. LoL. Thanks for the picture. I figure ill wrap her leg and ice it for a half hour twice a day. Cold hose and rub liniment on her. Ill take stock in vet wrap for the next week or so. LoL.

Foal
He is HILARIOUS! Lol I just had to see what I could do for that capped hock. Got it down a little with hosing and poultice, but it doesn't bother him.

That sounds good. If you can manage 15-20 mins. Per hosing, I bet you'll see her bounce back fast. A frozen peas are a good ice pack since they "give" and aren't rigid.

6W.. Wow.. neat looking bull what breed ? Does he pass the gentle trait ? That would be good.
Cal Porte. Hope her hock heals. I have seen neoprene hock wraps online but they would be more for a support , did she pop spavins ? Be careful when you wrap using liniments,you can make it swell more . If I use a linimint I don't wrap unless of course the Vet said to . Good luck

Foal
Thank you. He's an out-cross bred bull we raised. He goes back to Mexican fighting bull. His sire was raised by Harry Vold. He does not pass on the gentle trait. Lol He only got gentle with me after he got a really bad cut on his foot. It was life threatening. We had him at the vet in Elgin TX for several weeks. When he got home. And was confined to a stall, it wasn't 2 weeks before I was sitting on him. LOL He used to watch me imprint a foal I had up at the time with my mare. He would stand there and look so gentle, so I started rubbing on him. He's rotten! Permanent fixture here. One of our best sires.

There are ice boots, nice tall ones for just this type of injury. Warp a bag of frozen peas or corn and just keep refrigerating them to get them cold again.
