Cut on pastern

My daughter has a neighbor whose mare has a cut on her rear pastern. They are treating the cut, but it needs to be bandaged, and they can't get a bandage to stay in place, because of the horse having to bend her foot to walk. Any ideas?

A woman's sanitation pad/diaper and vet wrap is the best way to go. I had a mare who sliced her rear pastern and that how we kept it bandaged after the vet stitched it.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

Wow, thanks so much. I'm sure they were not using vetwrap, just regular bandaging.

Vet wrap is cheap and should be on hand.
