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.

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

Vet wrap is cheap and should be on hand.
