Last night I noticed my horse favoring his left front leg a little. I picked it up to look at it and noticed a small cut on the back of his ankle. I'm sure this is due to the barb wire. This morning I went out to feed him and noticed he was limping. He can put all his weight on it but he is limping. I cleaned it off with some peroxide, coated it with Corrona Ointment and wrapped it. Should I be doing anything else? Also, I know for a fact that I am not the only one who has my horse on barbed wire so, is there anything like turn-out leg wraps that I can use to protect his legs? I have heard of putting splint boots on him and turning him out but that wouldn't protect the area he is cut on now. Would Polo Wraps work?
Not to be rude but please do not lecture me on how barbed wire is bad for horses. I already know this but I don't have anywhere else to put him. He is on 15 fully cleared acres and for some reason he decided to hang out around the fence.
